The Leisure Society
The Leisure Society was formed in 2009 by Nick Hemming and Christian Hardy of Burton upon Trent, and moved to London on 2006. The rest of the brand is filled from The Willkommen Collective (a Brighton-based community of musicians).
Hemming previously played with actor Paddy Considine and film Director Shane Meadows in the band She Talks to Angels. The three collaborated on Dead Man’s Shoes with Hemmings writing and performing the music.
in 2009 The Leisure Society released their debut album The Sleeper to critical acclaim and single The Last of the Melting Snow which was nominated for an Ivor Novello for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. This exposure ensured the band were signed to UK Label Full Time Hobby and saw positive reviews for their debut headline show at London’s Bush Hall.
In 2010 their single Save It For Someone Who Cares was also nominated for the Ivor Novello award in the same category.
The band released further albums with mild chart success, but all received glowing critical praise.
