Council Estate Supermodels Go Primetime!
Talent Management finds out just why the Council Estate Supermodels have every reason to keep smiling in 2013...
By: Talent Management
If you’re a regular reader of the Talent Management blog or a fan of great music you will already be familiar with UK Indie/Electro band CESM. We have been following and supporting their journey to success over the last four years – since early release ‘Travolta Fever’
In those days the band consisted of co-producing duo Jules Dent and Sam Woodford (also lead vocalist). But in 2010 Council Estate Supermodels live was born, when the pair were joined by Jamie Dent (rhythm guitar), Danny Colson (lead guitar) and Danny Knox (drums). Just one month after becoming a five-piece band the new-look CESM smashed the Isle of Wight’
2011 saw CESM Live (by now voted ‘Best Band on the Isle of Wight’)
Since then, this winning combination of artists may well have provided the musical backdrop for some of your primetime TV viewing. Since early 2012, Council Estate Supermodels’ tracks have been used by shows such as Holly Oaks and Skins, and aired on channels like 4oD, E4, Channel 4 and Virgin. This year, the band’s catalogue of successes also includes another dynamic performance from the band at Isle of Wight Festival 2013, a ‘Best Single’
So what next for Council Estate Supermodels Live? Well, the guys will also be hosting their own night this month. Staying true to their roots at local venue ‘Legends Bar’ in Newport, on the 31st of August – supported by ‘Hundred Lies’. We recommend buying tickets now to avoid disappointment as this event is likely to sell out. You can also pick up a copy of their recently released LP at the event or request a copy via the Council Estate Supermodels Live facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/
Priced at a modest £5, we’d personally buy it just for the artwork. But it also happens to feature 6 tracks that you can’t afford to miss:
‘Sun Goes Down’
‘Catch Me If You Can’ (Dave Spoon/CESM collaboration)
‘Slave To The Beat Live’
