Mark Sharp & the Bicycle Thieves are the latest product from a thriving West Lothian music scene.
The five-piece are well known for their energetic live show and have SOLD OUT every headline gig to date, including King Tut's, The Attic, G2 and most recently St Luke’s in Glasgow; their biggest headline show to date, as they performed to more than 600 fans.
Festival slots have included TRNSMT, Tenement Trail & EH6 whilst the band have enjoyed supporting The Snuts & The View frontman Kyle Falconer. Summer 2019 saw MS&TBT headline the second stage at Party at the Palace, before performing to more than 10,000 people over two nights at Edinburgh Summer Sessions, with Lewis Capaldi.
Their latest EP, MS&TBT is some of the bands best work and features single ‘Tippy Toes’ – which received critical acclaim and became their most streamed track within a matter of weeks after release.
The band started 2020 with a SOLD OUT UK tour, headlining venues in London, Manchester & Newcastle before supporting Lewis Capaldi in the country’s biggest venue; Aberdeen’s P&J Live.
The band have continued to build their army of followers during lockdown, and with an increasing demand for live shows throughout the UK, they are getting ready to explode back onto the scene in 2021
