Junior Bill is the project of frontman and songwriter Rob Nichols. The band has been thrilling audiences through the small venues, pubs and festivals of the UK & Ireland since 2013. From teenage beginnings rehearsing in Cathays Youth & Community Centre, Cardiff, they have since self-released a string of EPs, singles and an ambitious, award-winning live concert film called 'Above Your Station' in 2017. In the live music scene they’ve made a lasting impression, opening for Supergrass during their reunion shows after a supporting tour with drummer Danny Goffey, then last year making their debut at Glastonbury Festival.
Much of Nichols's writing reaches into the lives of other people with an unusual intellect and an open empathetic spirit. Gigwise said "it's a political maturity set against a childlike honesty that makes Junior Bill so intriguing." The band are also known for their well crafted concepts with artistic relish surrounding releases. 2017’s self-titled EP saw a guerilla marketing campaign surrounding the fabled “Wolf In Grangetown” which ended up capturing the imagination through a series of national headlines.
2023 is set to be a big year for JB, with their first releases in four years. Starting with the angular, textured new wave punk of ‘Boys From Jungle’, the first single to be released from their upcoming debut album ‘Youth Club!’. The track will be released on 27th January and can be pre-saved now.Source [Spotify]
