Elbow are a multi award-winning Bury-based alt-rock band formed in 1997 and featuring Guy Garvey - lead vocals, guitar, lyrics, Mark Potter - guitar, backing vocals, Craig Potter - keyboards, organ, backing vocals, Pete Turner - bass and Richard Jupp - drums.
Their debut album "Asleep In The Back" appeared in 2001 and the 2008 album "The Seldom Seen Kid" garnered the Mercury Music Prize. Other acclaimed albums include: "The Take Off and Landing of Everything" and 2017's: "Little Fictions".
The song "One Day Like This", whilst not their biggest hit, has gone on to become a crossover signature tune of sorts.
