Foreign Affairs




Foreign Affairs are a Country-Rock duo from Bristol, comprising of brothers Adam and Lawrence Purnell. The powerful, passionate vocal of younger brother Lawrence turns heads instantly but it is the carefully crafted songs and energetic performance that keeps them facing that way.

Between catchy choruses and close harmonies, you will ultimately hear an honest and raw country/rock sound, one that has inspired them over the years to create their own unique take on the genres.
