Lottery Winners is a four member indie pop band from Leigh, Greater Manchester.
The band was formed by Thom Rylance (Vocals/Guitar), Robert Lally (Guitar/Vocals), Katie Lloyd (Bass/Vocals), and Joe Singleton (Drums).
In 2016, they were signed by music mogul Seymour Stein, the man responsible for Madonna, The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Smiths and many others.
Lottery Winners started based on Thom and Robert’s friendship as they both shared a passion for music, could play guitar and sing. But neither knew anyone with a bass, until a few seconds after their ‘Bassist Wanted’ poster was placed on the notice board of Heybrook Music, Leigh’s only guitar shop.
The 15 year old Katie Lloyd just happened to be in there at that time on that day. The band was completed when Joe Singleton received a phone call from Katie, high-school best friend, insisting that he to should join the band. After many declinations, he agreed.
