The Correspondents consist of a singer Mr Bruce and a producer Chucks. Both growing up in South London, they formed in 2007 and within two years had taken their hi-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.
It’s hard to pin down exactly what they do. Mr Bruce dances in a tempestuous whirlwind of monochromatic energy while singing, rapping and scatting about the trails and tribulations of love, lust and everything in between. Chucks takes the crowd on a journey through genres from the retro sounds of the Swing Era to Blues and 60s Soul, and then out the other end into Electronica, Drum and Bass & Jungle. The Correspondents are never afraid to stick to their pop sensibilities, but get fidgety dwelling anywhere too long.
Since their inception they have toured far, wide and relentlessly bringing their unique live show to huge crowds, earning themselves Telegraphʼs ʻTop Ten Glastonbury Highlightsʼ two years in a row. The Times mentioned the band as ‘bundles of fun’ and the surprise success of Wilderness Festival 2017.
