    Who are Blossoms?

    Blossoms are an English pop band from Stockport, Greater Manchester.

    Formed in 2013, the band consists of Tom Ogden (lead vocals, guitar), Charlie Salt (bass, backing vocals), Josh Dewhurst (lead guitar, percussion), Joe Donovan (drums) and Myles Kellock (keyboards, synthesiser, backing vocals).

    Throughout their career, they have enjoyed relative fame in the UK, which was helped when in April 2021 they announced a ‘one-day’ trial festival at Sefton Park on 2 May that year.

    The festival was gaining recognition as the first major festival in the UK for 14 months with no social distancing or face masks, following the COVID-19 pandemic.

    As of 2022, Blossoms have sold over 200,000 albums.
