Beautiful Thing are a UK alternative soul collective led by singer-songwriter Joseph Bernie and guitarist Lucas Polo.
They have been building a strong following over the past two years and are known for their soaring vocals and widescreen sound.
Debut single 'Waiting', crafted from of a simple rhythmic bottle loop, was produced by a team consisting of Sean Genockey (Shame, Roger Daltrey) Faithless drummer Andy Treacey and Belgian guitarist-producer Jo Cassiers. Also appearing on the track are Magpie Salute singer John Hogg on bass guitar and Alan Clark of the Dire Straits on Hammond organ. Meeting after a show in Camden Town, Joseph and Andy struck up a friendship that saw the Drummer mentoring the young songwriter. This culminated in 3 outstanding musical journeys that truly showcase the tenderness and power of Joseph's soulful voice, next to the untameable performance of Polo's unique playing style, creating a cinematic soundscape with a nostalgic throwback to classic soul.
Together they have developed their sound, combining the groove of Bill Withers with the ethereal atmosphere of the XX and the dynamic harmony and versatility of Crosby Stills & Nash creating a powerfully intense live show that will have you dancing and crying simultaneously.
With a host of tracks ready to drop and an EP mooted for early summer, 2019 looks to be a prolific and exciting year for the group as they finally begin their musical journey.
