Refuge are an acoustic band with baggage, sporting an appropriate interest in pushbikes & cheesecake!
We write all our own music and our latest album ‘Time Together’ and new single ‘Reflections’ have been played on BBC Introducing.
We are currently working on ‘Moving InWards’, with Mark Morriss, former lead singer of ‘The Bluetones’, this project aims to make live music an everyday feature on mental health wards.
Working on ‘rethinkyourmind’ 2012 was an excellent experience for the band and we are looking forward to being involved again!
