Orlando Weeks first came to prominence as frontman of The Maccabees. After debuting in 2005, the band became one of the most influential bands of recent years, winning Best British Band at the NME Awards as well as the prestigious Ivor Novello for Best Contemporary Song. The Maccabees split at the height of their powers, with their fourth album ‘Marks To Prove It’ going straight to #1 before they departed with three sold-out nights at Alexandra Palace.

Weeks returned in 2017 with his critically acclaimed project ‘The Gritterman’. An alternative festive tale, Orlando wrote and illustrated the book, published by Penguin, and also released an accompanying companion album. Raymond Briggs noted that ‘The Gritterman’ was “…extraordinary and original’’
