Born Thief



Having played the soon to be released Born Thief  single 'An Inch Of Doubt' on Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show it seemed like the ideal time to take a closer look at the group who have a similar vibe to Liverpool's Tea Street Band

Born Thief are - Jake McGrath (vocals), Sam Wilson (Guitar), Greg Jones (Bass), Luke Haran (Guitar) and John Fitzpatrick (Drums) who formed recently from the ashes of Yorkshire band Sharp Darts.





From their first live performance in May 2013 with Reverend & The Makers (who recently signed with Alan McGee's new record label 359 Music) and The Sunshine Underground, quickly followed by shows with The Hoosiers and ‘NME tipped’ Dexters, Born Thief have gone from strength to strength in their first six months as a band and have played Bingley Music Festival headlined by none other than Nile Rodgers and Chic who've been 2013 festival favourites.




Born Thief will be digitally releasing their debut single ‘An Inch of Doubt’ on Sept 9th with an official launch night at the 360 Club. On the night you'll be able to purchase a limited edition physical version of the track.  It's a fresh take on a late 80's stylee disco floor filler, with the choppy guitar and smooth vocal - it's musical niceness that's best listened to on the beach in Ibiza before hitting a foam party - more tracks soon please!
