Youth Hostel is a four-piece band, lead by Mike Poynton and his trio of Tom Williams, James Rookyard and Dan Rankin. The band originated in Ormskirk, Mike was originally a solo artist, but has been in bands before. A chance meeting with Carl Hunter, The Label Creative Director, at a Label Recordings get-together sparked the formation of the band we now call Youth Hostel.
Their debut single “Out Of My Mouth” was recorded in the famous Liverpool Parr Street studios. The band only had a few hours rehearsal before the studio recording. The single was recorded in one nine hour session which included many vocals, harmonies, gang vocals and an impromptu visit from a brass section.
Youth Hostel are set to perform at The Label Recordings Liverpool Sound City Showcase on the Saturday of the festival, which will be their most highly anticipated performance so far and will help them become a household name of independent music in Liverpool.
