ABOUT CHANGE THE LETTER
‘These Quiet Streets’ by Change The Letter is a modern acoustic-pop powerhouse, with rhythmic melodies and gentle vocals embezzled with clarity and focus throughout. Lyrically rich and distinguishably creative whilst still maintaining familiar structures, each track trembles parallel with its own fragility and dynamic impact that really rounds of this five-song seductress. The entire EP has its own little grey cloud floating around it, letting small amounts of positive light through but ultimately remains covered in a veil of darkness, eclectically combining it with an underlying feeling of serenity that is suited for those who love to submit to the shadows – but not too much. onthehousemusic.co.uk
Highly touted project from the heart of Cornwall, fusing American rock and country influence with British folk songwriting to craft honest, relatable and memorable songs.
Change the Letter are a roots music trio from Cornwall UK, formed in the autumn of 2018 by singer/songwriter Rob Phillimore and guitarist/songwriter Rob Griffiths. The duo quickly found their feet writing and performing together, and in there first year the group released their début e.p (These Quiet Streets) and follow-up single (Puppy Dog), signed with independent label 'Dr John’s Surgery Records' and toured the UK and mainland Europe - culminating in the act being shortlisted for ‘Debut of the Year’ in the annual LWM Awards.
Think Bon Jovi, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Jason Isbell. Think Oasis, Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller and Jake Bugg. This mix of influences allow Change the Letter to seamlessly switch and blend traditional roots music and American rock with classic British rock and indie stylings, making a live performance from the band a varied and enjoyable affair, with catchy hooks and authentic, sing-along lyrics.
In early 2020 the duo became a trio when bass guitarist Tobias (Toby) Panton joined the fray. A return to Europe and tour of the UK, as well as the recording and release of their début full-length album were in the pipeline for 2020, but plans have had to be put on hold due to the outbreak of Covid_19 and subsequent lockdown. Once the dust settles and the roads open up once again, Change the Letter will be back in the saddle - writing, recording and putting on energetic performances throughout the UK and beyond.

‘Just Another Morning’ drifts like a Weller track with a Jam-esque quality to the mournful strumming and vocals full of regret and missed opportunities.
"[Whatever Will Be] sounds like a Jefferson Airplane acoustic jam on a beach while the sun rises"
"fusing something approaching the baggy sound with 60s West Coast guitar-pop and that is an interesting prospect to say the least. Could this be the birth of the Kernowfornia sound?"
