Foreign Affairs
Foreign Affairs is a dynamic musical duo formed by brothers Adam and Lawrence Purnell.

Despite Adam’s relocation to Brussels to study guitar, the brothers maintained their creative collaboration through online sessions, a testament to their dedication and the origin of their band’s name. Their music is a blend of powerful Americana and pop, creating infectious anthems that resonate with audiences across the UK and beyond. The duo’s discography includes the single “Sell My Soul” and their debut EP “The Old Fire Station,” both of which have enjoyed airplay on local and national BBC radio. Their sound draws from a range of influences, from The Lumineers to Johnny Cash, and The Kings Of Leon, resulting in a unique style that’s both soulful and evocative. Their work has not only captured the attention of listeners but also earned them critical acclaim and opportunities to tour extensively, including a 22-date European tour with Grammy-nominated artist Larkin Poe Foreign Affairs’ commitment to their craft has led to a publishing deal with Peer Music and collaborations with renowned producer/songwriter Julian Emery. Their songwriting prowess has been recognized with support and national radio play from BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing. With tracks like the indie-folk gem “Rosanna,” the duo continues to evolve their sound, focusing on raw, acoustic-driven production that highlights their lyrical talent and the emotional depth of their music
