Plymouth based 4-piece band Lemanis have spent the last couple of years in and out of the studio recording our first 2 albums, and assembling a large army of superb musicians to back us up both in the studio and on stage. The little orchestra we've found ourselves very proud to be involved with includes a string quartet and horn section, as well as flutes and a female backing singer. The first album, 'Shell', was released in 2007, followed by the new album called 'The Truth About a Push Me-Pull You' (2009). Tracks from both albums can be heard on the myspace player. Signing up to the Lemanis mailing list at will allow you to download free songs and hear rare tracks from the band, and you'll be kept up to date with live dates, give-aways, free/cheap gig entry and anything else we can do. Go to right now - you'll love it.

Here's what some people have said about Lemanis:

"When Brian Wilson was searching for the right musos for his 'Smile' project, he could have borrowed Plymouth's Lemanis and got the job done in a week" - Backbone, 24/7 magazine

"Complex structure and fluctuating musical patterns that demand your absolute attention" - Ewan McKenzie, Whimsical Records

"a HUGE sound... It sounds great" - Seth Lakeman

"Quite possibly the most talented foursome ever to come out of Plymouth, Lemanis have, in the form of 'Shell', created a true musical masterpiece. A breathtaking 13 track affair, bursting with gems, this album really is something special. I was lucky enough to see the bands album launch party at The Hub, where they were backed by a 10 piece orchestra... one word - stunning! With a sound this big, great tunes and talent aplenty, Lemanis have the potential to make it huge!" - Fly Magazine

"The only two good things that have come out of Plymouth are Gin and Lemanis" - Ian Cooper, mastering engineer for Nick Cave, U2, Oasis, Kate Bush and lemanis...

"Listening to the music on this album is like entering another universe..." - Plymouth Herald

"Bloody Hell, what a great sound, what a great album!.... Fanf**kintastic!" -
