After a successful summer of secret pop-up sessions from bands like Slow Club, The Boxer Rebellion and Ghostpoet, and HP are back with three more pop-up sessions to bookmark the end of the year as part of their Everybody On global campaign. The first of the planned late 2011 sessions was DELS who recently played a captivating set at The Lock Tavern, wowing the crowd at this packed out venue with his own unique brand of hip-hop.

The Leisure Society’s free pop-up session at Tamesis Dock seems fitting for the folk-pop band, with their poetic lyrics and rustic folk melodies perfectly matching the floating venue’s warm, inviting vibrations on the water.

The band’s songwriter Nick Hemming first started his musical journey ten years ago when he became close friends with actor Paddy Considine and award winning director Shane Meadows (This Is England). This lead to a number of projects, most notably penning the scores for two of Meadows’ most outstanding films, A Room For Romeo Brass and Dead Man’s Shoes.

Everything changed with the arrival of Christian Hardy, who convinced Nick to reinvigorate his love affair with singing, and make the all-important move to London, where they found likeminded souls in Brighton’s Willkommen Collective. They’ve gone from strength to strength since releasing their debut album The Sleeper in 2009 and, their second offering Into The Murky Water in May this year.
