We’re delighted to be working with His Lordship again!

Simply put, His Lordship are the most explosive and exciting live act to emerge from the UK in years. A maximum rock’n’roll trio conceived during lockdown to blow the cobwebs away and remind us of what music has been missing.

Made up of the powerhouse duo of James Walbourne (The Pretenders, The Pogues, The Rails) and Kristoffer Sonne (Chrissie Hynde, Willie Nelson), the band’s first single All Cranked Up hit the 6 Music B-List last summer, followed up by Buzzkill – an angular, twisted ear worm produced by David Wrench (Courtney Barnett, the XX, Frank Ocean).

His Lordship sold out their debut UK tour in July, and then joined Jason Isbell on a sell out European tour culminating with a roof raising show at London’s Eventim Apollo. The boys embarked on their biggest headline tour in March/April, taking in 12 cities, including a packed out show at Gullivers in April.

The band are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut LP, which is produced by David Wrench and mixed by Tchad Blake (Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys), and due for release early next year.

‘A dose of helter-skelter outlaw energy from two of the best in the biz. Bursting out of the traps, it’s all colour, explosions, and light, His Lordship’s frenetic noise just about glued together with zesty melody’ – Clash Magazine
