Columbia have been together for over three years now and have grown from a band that only played "covers" to a band that has become both confident in playing and writing their own material. However, they still play the odd gig playing a mixture of both covers and originals. Their journey began as friends, jamming and throwing ideas around until Alex Crawshaw and Chris Quinton decided to make a commitment to form a band. Soon after, Peter Rowell was brought in to play bass. Columbia were now closer to becoming a proper band but were lacking a certain man to front them; Simon "Sid" Brown was the chosen target and after a very small amount of persuasion the band became complete.

Since that first gig on January 30th 2015, the band have grown from strength to strength playing in Burnley, Manchester (Night and Day Cafe, Manchester University and Late Room), Sunderland, and many other places. 

The band are a four piece indie rock band writing original material and also playing the songs people want to hear. They have had many successes, the highlight being  support band to Whitesnake at a sold out Burnley Mechanics and supporting 10000 Things (signed to Snow Patrols label}. 

Columbia also recently won a competition on BBC radio Lancashire for best new song (Read between the lines). As for the future, the band are continuing to write original material  in their quest for that well deserved recognition. Having just played a return date to a packed out local venue The Talbot the band are continuing to play live again after a very quiet summer. The band are continuing to push themselves to play more gigs, write more songs and trying to continually improve on the previous material that has been written.  Hopefully the hard work will pay off but until then they will keep on trying...
