Featuring the string section of the Young Musicians Programme (a Sage backed initiative), it includes a version of the single ‘Your Face’, which has racked up over 7 million plays on Spotify, plus four more songs from his self-titled 2015 debut album.

‘Live at The Sage’ EP Tracklisting:

  1. Your Face
  2. To The Lighthouse
  3. Black and Blue
  4. See You Tonight
  5. Vane Tempest

“The Sage is one of my favourite venues in the UK and the place that every young musician based in the North East dreams of playing, let alone selling out. It was such a special night and I’m so happy to have had the evening recorded. The opportunity to perform with the YMP Strings was too good an offer to miss, and with their help me and my band were able to get these songs to sound how they appeared in my head when I first composed them.” – The Lake Poets (Marty Longstaff)

In addition, The Lake Poets have announced an intimate fourteen-date headline UK Tour for April and May 2018. All of the dates, venues and locations are listed below.
