Indie-folk-chamberpop maestros The Leisure Society is essentially the brainchild of songwriter and film score composer Nick Hemming. Coming from the same canon as The Divine Comedy and the Mull Historical Society, Nick's gentle indie anthems revel in acoustic guitars, pianos, harps and infectious melodies. They have earnt themselves two Ivor Novello award nominations, whilst the heart-warming and beautiful single 'The Last Of The Melting Snow' was proclaimed Guy Garvey's (Elbow) favourite song of 2009 and Radio 2's Radcliffe & Maconie promptly made it their 'record of the week'. In 2011 the band released the follow-up to 2008's debut 'The Sleeper' with the equally sublime 'Into The Murky Water'.
