Circus Envy are an alternative-folk band formed in Hull in 2005. Featuring a line-up of primarily acoustic instruments, they add a traditional sensibility to their intricately crafted harmony-led modern songs with use of bouzouki, mandolin and cajon.

Debut album, 'Take Me Home' was released in 2008 on Blue Book Records, leading to the band being selected to play at the Beverley and Oxford Folk Festivals. High profile support gigs including Jim Moray, Megson, Martin Simpson and Jackie Leven have cemented the band's reputation as a live act.

The band's latest EP, "A New Dawn", produced by Stu Hanna and featuring guest appearances by Sam Sweeney and Hannah James, was released in 2010.
