Prior to meeting, Kate and Dan were both doing their own thing musically. After Kate made contact with Dan, wondering whether he might be interested in collaborating – he was. And so, Meadowlark was born! A matter of weeks after deciding they were a band, they were asked to support Bastille! Their track ‘Eyes Wide’ was added to BBC Radio 1’s Introducing playlist and they’ve performed at Glastonbury’s Introducing stage amongst others.
We’re so excited to be collaborating with Meadowlark for #MusicBringsUsTogether and looking forward to hearing more from these guys in the future.
