Meet Your Feet is an eclectic 9-piece all women band from Bristol playing original music with latin,jazz, soul and pop influences. The songs are dynamic and have tight harmonies, catchy sax riffs, and infectious percussion.
Formed in 1988 as a result of three of the women getting together to start a women’s music workshop, Meet Your Feet played its first gig in June 1988, when asked to get a set together for a Benefit Gig against section 28. During the 80s, Meet Your Feet had a lot of success as a live band and as well as gigging all over Britain, they played also at all the prestigious festivals like for example WOMAD and Glastonbury. Meet Your Feet did several European tours. In 1989 Meet Your Feet was voted as Bristol’s top band by Bristol’s Venue magazine readers. The band was featured on HTV and BBC TV and was also interviewed by Jenni Murray on the BBC Radio 4 programme “Women’s Hour”.
In 1989 they released their first double A-side single (“Spread the Word” and “Out of the Grey”) which they recorded after winning a competition as Bristol’s most promising new acts.
In 1990 they released their live album (“Meet Your Feet – Live at Chard”) which was recorded at the first Women’s Music Festival in Chard, Somerset.
In early 1992 the group disbanded as it became harder and harder to find new women to join the band as others were leaving due to other life commitments and events.
In 2010 Meet Your Feet reformed and has been gigging since. After joining forces with the Jelli Records label in 2013, Meet Your Feet have released their highly acclaimed EP ”Unfinished Business” and the single “Bristol People”.
