Born in Salford and raised on romance, The Lottery Winners blend momentous guitar pop melodies with a humorous and wistful lyricism. The band has built an extensive and loyal fanbase through consistent touring, earning a reputation for hugely entertaining, blisteringly loud live shows. Recent support slots include Catfish And The Bottlemen, Blossoms, We Are Scientists, Madness, The View, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, The Futureheads, James Veck-Gilodi, Jamie Cullum, The Charlatans, Sleeper, The Wonderstuff, The Wedding Present and The Enemy.

This summer sees the band play festivals including Glastonbury, Kendal Calling, Camden Rocks,  Live at Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and Bearded Theory. Their 16-date UK tour culminated in a triumphant sellout gig at Manchester’s 450-capacity Academy 3 venue, and the band has received widespread support from BBC 6 Music, XFM, Virgin and BBC Introducing.

The Lottery Winners have completed work on their debut album – recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales with producer Tristan Ivemy (Frank Turner, The Holloways) and mastered at Abbey Road by the legendary Frank Arkwright (Coldplay, The Smiths, Arcade Fire) and will release the first singles later this year.
