A COLLISION OF PERFECT POP, EDGY POLITICS AND HEART-ON-THE-SLEEVE ROMANTICISM.

Don’t Call Me Ishmael are a harmony driven five piece original pop band from the Midlands.  Since 2015 they have released two albums, three EPs and gigged throughout the country. The band is made up of two sets of siblings; Gary and Duncan Wilcox, Sophie and Jack Tasker, and longtime friend and collaborator Laura Ellement, all have been active in bands for years.

Don’t Call Me Ishmael are releasing their third album ‘Saint Ishmael’ in early 2019, with a UK tour to follow.
