Music review

Toploader perform at Marine Hall, Fleetwood on 1 March 2014 – with Preston’s very own Mike Dignam.

Best known for their iconic hit Dancing in the Moonlight, Toploader’s live set revisits all of their singles including Achilles Heel and Time Of My Life.

And for the Lancashire leg of the tour, Preston-born singer/songwriter Dignam will be supporting the band giving locals the chance to see two great live acts on one night.

Fresh from his own tour of the country and about to embark on a tour supporting Tich, Mike is looking to follow his successful EP Live. Love. Sing up with new music this spring.

Toploader, Joseph Washbourn (vocals & keys), Dan Hipgrave (guitar), Matt Knight (bass) and Rob Green (drums), returned in 2011 from an eight-year hiatus with their third studio album Only Human, produced by Danton Supple (Morrissey and Coldplay).

The debut release from the album, Never Stop Wondering became the unrivalled soundtrack for Sky Sports and the BBC and second single A Balance To All Things then took it a step further, making it on to radio playlists across the country including the prestigious BBC Radio 2.

In June 2011 lead singer Joseph Washbourn competed in ITV1s Popstar to Operastar where his voice took him through to the semi finals.

Since the release of the album, the band has been working their way around venues and festivals across the UK, building awareness of their return.

Their new single Turn in Around, co-written with Ivor Novello Songwriter Of The Year Eg White (Adele, Will Young, James Morrison), and produced by Andrew Green (Keane, Scouting For Girls) part of a four track EP.
