Project: Leave The Capital is a mission to ignite the home fires and keep them burning, with a four track vinyl EP and a UK tour launching in February 2022. The record boasts four of the finest artists from the melting pot of talent performing across Southern England. The EP and tour will highlight what can be achieved away from label millions, harnessing a DIY attitude for passion, not profit. The four featured artists, JW Paris, Luna Rosa, Seán Grant & The Wolfgang and The Seven Sentinels, will not only showcase their individual talents, but will play their part in elevating their local scene, during a time when it has never been more vital to do so.

“Hitting the Kickstarter target in that short space of time just goes to show the support of grassroots music out there. As an independent band we are nothing without people supporting us. We haven’t got those A&R heads, thousands of pounds of investment or some huge PR push, we have you lot who have pledged their hard-earned money to be part of something special. It shows that music is still made by the people that matter the most – fans.” (JW Paris guitarist and vocalist Danny Collins)

Rory McDade, singer and guitarist of Luna Rosa said, “Projects like this are so vital for bands like us. This project embodies the exact ethos and sentiment Luna Rosa was built on, DIY to the core with passion coursing its veins, running on grit and determination.”

For Seán Grant & The Wolfgang it will be their first tour since two jaunts around Europe, three years ago when they were signed to legendary independent record label Fierce Panda Records. “It feels like we’ve won the Premier League and we’re going out in an open top bus,” beams Seán Grant as he looks ahead to a “celebratory tour”. “This feels very organic and natural and it’s almost like the tour is going to be a celebration of the project that has already been backed on Kickstarter. It went over its target and we’re celebrating that fact by taking it out and playing live”.
