Garden Stage, Saturday 2022
Joe Symes and the Loving Kind are a three-piece Rock/Pop band from Liverpool. Before lockdown, the band had finished a two-and-a-half-year tour across the UK and parts of Europe in promotion of the critically acclaimed second album Phase II, which gained airplay on radio stations all over the world, as well as reviews, magazine interviews, and endorsements by celebrities from the world of show business.
Their new EP A Place to Call Our Own – which is the follow up to Phase II, was released in March 2022, with the title track reaching number 8 in the national 365 Radio Top 30 charts based in London. It climbed higher than such artists as Florence and the Machine, Liam Gallagher, Jack White, and Ed Sheeran to name a few, and remained in the top 20 for five weeks.
