Biography

After years of sibling feuding, huge stadium shows and multi-million selling albums, one bust up too many in Paris saw Brit-pop legend Noel Gallagher storm out of Oasis in 2009. Leaving his brother Liam and the remaining band members to form Beady Eye, Noel went with his songs into the studio for two contrasting albums - one of standard indie rock, the other a collaboration of psychedelic strangeness with experimental producers Amorphous Androgynous.

Taking the moniker Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds from a Jefferson Airplane song, the self-titled first album emerged in 2011 featuring session musicians including The Zutons' bassist Russell Pritchard and bearing the trademarks of Oasis's later, more heart-felt moments. It shot to number one in the UK Album Charts and produced the singles 'The Death of You and Me', 'AKA... What a Life!' and 'If I Had a Gun' despite Radio 1 refusing to place the new material on its playlist.

In 2014 he collaborated with Rosie Danvers and The Wired Strings for his second album 'Chasing Yesterday' which was released the following year. The lead single 'In the Heat of the Moment' was followed by 'Ballad of the Mighty I' and 'Riverman'. They toured the album into 2016 before releasing their third album 'Who Built the Moon?'. In May 2017 they performed as the headline act at the 'We Are Mancester' memorial concert after a terrorist attack at Manchester Arena left 23 people dead.
