Based in the New Forest in the south of England, Becoming Branches are a Country-Folk-Pop trio blending acoustic sounds and soaring harmonies in an enchanting mix of creative and heartfelt originals. Winners of the 2019 Wimborne Folk Festival Live Award; their debut EP is out now!
Having played together in various acts over the years; Jaz, Rob and Hannah formed Becoming Branches in the summer of 2018. Initially starting out as a covers band performing at private parties and weddings, the trio soon starting writing their own songs and creating their own sound. These original songs were then taken out on the road, being shared at open mics and showcases throughout the Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire area.
In 2019, work began on their debut EP which was recorded at Basement Studio in Dorset and produced by Sean Hatton with Rob. The week before it’s public release; Jaz, Rob and Hannah held a launch party at a beautiful barn conversion in the New Forest. The venue was packed with family and friends and as well as a live performance from the band, the night featured some of the stories behind the songs.
Preceded by the first single Take You Home, their self-titled debut EP was released in March of this year and achieved over 3000 streams in the first month. After being named the BBC Introducing Solent Record of the Week and gaining further radio play both locally and online, Becoming Branches have been getting wonderful reviews and are excited to keep sharing their music with an ever growing fan base.
Becoming Branches is out now and available across all major streaming platforms. A limited number of physical CDs are also available, do get in touch to order your copy!
Rehearsal Tapes is a small collection of some favourite covers, recorded when the trio was first formed.
As well as showcasing their own original music, Jaz, Rob and Hannah are available for parties, weddings and private events. With over three hours of covers from throughout the decades, please get in touch to discuss having Becoming Branches perform at your special occasion.
