Fyfe Dangerfield brings his soulful melodies and magnificent pop hooks to Exeter Phoenix in September as part of his extensive UK tour.
Birmingham-born Fyfe Dangerfield burst on to the solo scene in May 2010 with Fly Yellow Moon. A TV commercial for John Lewis featured Fyfe singing his fantastic version of the Billy Joel song She’s Always a Woman.
Fyfe is best known as the founding member of Guillemots, a BRIT Award nominated indie rock band.

The singer- songwriter previously played in The Courtesy Group, which is his brother’s band that have regularly joined Guillemots on tour in Birmingham and London.
Guillemots is made up of Fyfe alongside MC Lord Magrao, Aristazabel Hawkes and Greig Stewart. Their first album Through the Windowpane was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2006. It received critical acclaim and Paul McCartney described the song ‘ear as “a very brave way to open an album…beautiful orchestration.”
Guillemots have enjoyed success with a top 20 single, Get Over It in the UK Singles Charts while their second album Red reached number nine in the UK album charts.
With his irresistibly catchy tunes and magnetic stage presence, Fyfe promises to deliver a brilliant showcase of his own particular brand of quirky indie-pop.
