Combining roots Americana, retro infused Indie and Folk, Hot Raisin will transport you to a place of dreamy melodies and arrangements that are good for the soul.

The five piece band from the East Coast of the UK originally formed as an acoustic duo in 2009 by it’s founding members and childhood friends Tory Cobb (Lead Vocals & Acoustic Guitar) and Mary Podd (Lead Guitar). Playing at venues and festivals in the UK and overseas, the duo are always exploring and trying to find new ways to expand their sound.

In 2016 a chance presented itself in the form of Norwich based friends Luke Fox (Guitar), Tom Harvey (Bass) and Daryl Blyth (Drums). With the guys already massive fans of the girls’ work (and vice versa) they were soon performing as a 5 piece playing venues, bars and festivals in the UK.

2017 saw the band enter the studio to record their first full band E.P. The much anticipated four track E.P entitled “Whiskey Ginger” is the perfect introduction to the band showcasing their laid back vibes and upbeat charm.
