Later this summer, they will release an EP with four new tracks.

This comes after a year when the band committed to making a difference and have so far played over two hundred and twenty free live shows reaching over 1 million views since the start of lockdown.

Their daily ‘Live’ gigs provide a dose of positivity and support for fans tuning in for a chance to hear the brothers’ down to earth positive vibes for the day including favourites such as All Time High and Communicate as well as the chance to catch one of over 20 new songs they have written.

As well as writing new music for their own band, the brothers co-wrote and produced music with several other artists including Lucy Spraggan, Megan O’Neill , Since September, Beth McCarthy, Lucy May Walker and Christian Burrows.

They also hosted over 200 weekly free live shows on Facebook for fans during lockdown and have recently hosted “The Dunwells Music Masterclasses” in schools to inspire young musicians to write music themselves.

Joe and Dave Dunwell said: “We were blown away by how many people kept tuning in every day and sharing their positive stories including fans from all over the world.

"This helped inspire our new music which is optimistic, upbeat and celebrates the world re-opening.

"It was a very productive 12 months which saw us not only write our own music but co-writing and producing with other artists including Lucy Spraggan, Megan O’Neill and Christian Burrows”.
