William The Conqueror

Cornwall trio William the Conqueror have been picking up praise from far flung corners since debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim, steadily winning over fans up and down the country with their live shows.

The indie-rock three piece features Ruarri Joseph on vocals and guitar, Naomi Holmes on bass and Harry Harding on drums. Channelling classic blues and roots through a grunge/indie filter – with diverse influences including The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads – they have been praised for their grit and authenticity by The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers and have shared stages with the likes of Van Morrison, Ethan Johns and Richard Thompson.
