The Gentlemen

Nicholas Noble and his band The Gentlemen were announced by PRS for Music as its 100,000th member earlier this week. We journeyed up to Sheffield to visit the band in their studio and hear about what it means to be a member of the collecting society as the organisation approaches its centenary in 2014. Watch the group perform an acoustic version of their single Lights of Tokyo from their forthcoming album, Departures

PRS for Music announced its 100,000th member earlier this week as it heads towards next year’s centenary.

Nicholas Noble, a member of unsigned Sheffield band The Gentleman was the 100,000th to sign up to the collecting society.

The group, which includes Sean D’Souza Walsh, Josh Cana and Joel Cana alongside Nicholas, have been together for some years delighting audiences and fans both home and abroad with their disco-tinged pop music.

They’ve already enjoyed a support slot with fellow Sheffield musician Jarvis Cocker as well as receiving radio plays from BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary and selling out numerous headline shows in their native city.

We caught up with the band to hear them perform an exclusive acoustic version of Lights of Tokyo from their forthcoming album, Departures.
