Windshake are a five-piece band originally from Wales. Since May of 2021 the band has consisted of Sam Elliott (vocals, guitar), Kilian Lee (guitar), Oliver Thomas (drums), Anna Bennett (keyboards) and Jojo Oakes-Monger (bass).
Now based in Bristol, the band’s debut long player ‘Waking Moment’ was released in December 2021.
Words from Ged Babey, Louder than War music website: “Timeless, melodic, curious songs performed with a maturity and elegance. Windshake make graceful folk-psychedelia but basically it’s just great pop music. There are noticeable influences needless to say but it’s singer Sam Elliott’s voice which goes from Thom Yorke style croon, Bolan warble to full-throated holler, which pulls you in. And the harmonies. The lyrics are strange and curious… ‘space travels in my blood’ style… and Elliot has the pale complexion and tumbling brown hair-style of Nick Drake.”
