Building on the incredible impact of the debut eponymous album in 2017, Ten Millennia are back with their eagerly-awaited follow up, ‘Love Won’t Wait’, which is out now and available from here, HMV, Amazon and independent record stores.. The album features a number of funky, disco-flavoured songs penned by the band’s keyboard player, Wayne Pollock, and vocalist, Rosie.
Produced by Andy Wright, notable for his Grammy award-winning work with Jeff Beck as well as such luminaries as Simply Red, Annie Lennox, Luciano Pavarotti plus a score of pop successes, the album is the culmination of an exciting and successful couple of years for the Yorkshire-based band.
2017 saw the band receive massive radio airplay, both regional and national, including BBC Radio 2 playlists. They also toured with Jools Holland and Shakin’ Stevens, as well as headlining the Riverside Stage at The Cornbury Music festival. In 2018, Ten Millennia appeared on the main stage at the Cornbury Festival, as well as supporting Tony Hadley, Texas and more dates with Jools Holland, including The Royal Albert Hall!
The band is made up of the following members: Rosie (lead vocals/song writing), Wayne Pollock (keyboards/song writing), Rich Jevons (guitar), Colin Sutton, (bass guitar), Russell Henderson (saxophone), and Julian Richer (drums).
Ten Millennia came into being after founding member, the late Derek Edward’s tried-and-tested method of sticking an ad in a music shop window drew together a bunch of musicians sharing an impressive set of musical credentials, each having performed with some of the world’s top rock, pop and jazz artists (and a drummer!).
Yorkshire is very much part of the Ten Millennia’s DNA, with the band members all sharing a Yorkshire heritage, and the region’s numerous ancient settlements – some of which have been in existence since 8000 bc (10,000 years) – giving the band its name.
As vocalist, Rosie says, ‘We were so delighted that our first album charted. It really made us want to get back into the studio to record the follow up. Hopefully, our audience will enjoy our new music as much as we enjoyed making it.’
