Five years ago, a brand new project and musical chemistry would blossom.
James Bland met Tamara Swan by chance in late 2012. With both following their own musical endevours, they discussed the idea of doing something together. Having tried a few gigs under 'Tamara Swan' with James as accompaniment on guitar, The Last Minute is born. A mixture of Folk and Pop music.
"With the advantage of being in a partnership, there's only two people who are making decisions for the future of the duo and we can work together pretty quickly."
Throughout 2013, playing live would be constant as bookings were increasing and didn't leave much of a chance to consider recording. However, towards the end of the year, Tamara already had a handful of songs ready to work on which would see the release of the first Ep 'Mixed Up' which included the single 'Guardian Angel' released in July 2014.
Having continued to get their "foot in the door" to the local music circuit and beyond. It would be about 17 months till they were next in the studio.
December 2015 would see the release of 'Hearts on Fire' taken from the Debut Album which is still underway. It triggered a single release show which was held in Huddersfield. It was also first aired on BBC introducing on Dec' 12th.
The Last Minute are currently in the studio finishing their long awaited debut.
