‘Young Braves’ formed after brothers Ollie and Elliot Scott met Jacob Ferguson, at a local open mic in 2009, at the tender ages of 11 and 13. The three formed a friendship and began to play under the name ‘Arcade Parade’. Recruiting drummer Dan Bryne, they began writing and performing extensively at local venues in Shropshire. Winning ‘Next Big Thing’, a local newspaper competition, they were rewarded with a slot on the main stage of ‘Shrewsbury Fields Forever’ Festival, sharing the bill with ‘The Sunshine Underground’ and ‘The Wombats’ to name a few.
In 2013 they released their first E.P. (the Gavin Monaghan produced ‘Cave of Swimmers’), leading to regular plays on Shropshire’s ‘BBC Introducing’ show and XFM. The track ‘Grace’ was selected by Jamie Oliver to use on a FoodTube videos (4th July NYC Cheesecake).
Releasing a follow up E.P. under the name change ‘Young Braves’ in 2014. Their track ‘Youth’ was subsequently played on Huw Stephens’ Radio 1 show. A ‘Record of The Day’ feature in February 2015, led to them being signed to management company ‘Nick Stewart & Associates’.
With appearances at ‘Big Festival’ and a slot supporting ‘Little Comets’ the band have built a strong local following, which was further strengthened with the bands latest E.P ‘Quicksand’ released on ‘Man in The Moon Records’ via Warners ADA in July 2016. This led to features in both ‘Clash’ and ‘Shortlist’.
