Life Story return to Bristol on Sunday 1 December for a highly anticipated performance at the newly community
owned Exchange. As well as playing their many classics tunes, the
band will also be showcasing their first new studio album in 20
With a string of top 40 hit singles and albums in the 1990s, My Life Story received huge critical acclaim with their brand of epic, orchestral pop, leading many artists of the Britpop era to feature them on their records. Steve Lamacq described charismatic frontman Jake Shillingford as “One of our most colourful lyricists”.
In recent years My Life Story have become a hugely popular, tight live act on the wave of the 90's revival. Their high-energy set includes sing-along favourites 12 Reasons Why I Love Her, Strumpet, Sparkle and The King of Kissingdom. Taking a break from writing film and TV scores, Jake and the band have recently crowd-funded their fourth album, which is due for release on 6 September this year.
“Jake Shillingford took to the stage like a true star. Part Jagger, part Jarvis, he kicked, star-jumped and fell to the floor in mesmerising fashion. You’re left with no doubt that My Life Story are one of the decade’s forgotten heroes and asking why were they not massive?”
