TBCMF’s New Country & Americana Playlist
Our playlist celebrates new music from UK-based songwriters, artists and musicians in the Country Americana and Roots genres and includes all the lovely subgenres in between.
With this in mind, we add newly released music on a weekly basis from artists on our radar. Consequently, the playlist is a work in progress and a labour of love for us. Please like on Spotify as this will directly help the independent artists on the playlist.

The playlist is an illustration of how UK artists are pushing the boundaries of Americana & country music, including:
The Shires are a UK country music duo. Their latest album, 10 Year Plan, is out now!
They also won awards from Music Week and British Country Music Association Awards for Best Duo/Group Act.
Ward Thomas is a country-pop duo composed of twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas. They released their first album, From Where We Stand, in May 2017 and have been compared to The Civil Wars and Sara Bareilles. Their fourth studio album, “Invitation”, was released in January 2019.
The twins started after playing a song they’d written to their singing teacher, Ann Bailey, who had been a session singer in Nashville. She liked it so much that she got them into the studio with producer Barry O’Neill who helped them record an EP called A Wasteland Companion (2013), followed by two more EPs: Backwards Glance (2014) & Paint The Town Red (2015). In 2016 they were signed by Universal Music Group, for whom they recorded their debut album From Where We Stand, which reached number 2 on the UK Albums Chart selling over 100K copies in its first week of release!
Yola is a singer-songwriter from Bristol, UK, now living in Nashville, TN. She’s a country soul, Americana and r&b artist who is currently touring the US with her band, The Yola Band (see them if you can). Her debut album Walk Through Fire was released in 2012 and included the single Ride Out In The Country featured on our first playlist.
The latest single to be added to her new album will be released later this year, and we’re excited about it! You can find Yola’s music on Spotify and other places where you stream music.
The band Motel Sundown is an excellent example of the new contemporary Country Music artists breaking into the UK music scene. The band was formed in 2016 when singer-songwriters Naomi Campbell, Karen Turley and Rob Johnson met at a songwriting retreat in Liverpool. They have recently released a new album If You Were Listening.
The band’s music is described as modern catchy country songs with solid harmonies on top of acoustic guitars and banjo.
The Waterboys are a Scottish rock band formed in Edinburgh. The band first emerged on the cusp of the 1980s as part of a wave of British post-punk bands led by Orange Juice, Aztec Camera and Josef K. During their initial career; they had a string of Top 40 hits, including “Whole Of The Moon” and “A Girl Called Johnny.”
Americana Highways say The Golden Age Of The Waterboys continues with All Souls Hill In 2022!
