We make relaxed and entertaining music for people sick of the mainstream. We class ourselves as 'Alternative Folk' both in Genre and as People. We feel that lyrics and the ambience of the music is more important than being famous or making money.

With lots of Radio play in the US with their hit song Barcode, Vision Thing have made friends in unlikely places for a band from Liverpool and we hope to see you out and about at one of our gigs.

Recently Vision Thing have played many festivals including The Diggers Festival, Bickerstock Festival, Green Slate Festival as well as supporting bands like Merry Hell at Sold out concerts with concerts at The Floral Hall Southport, The Cavern Club Liverpool (3 times), The Zanzibar Liverpool, The Old Court Wigan, The Lomax Liverpool and many more.

"Vision Thing are a five-piece hailing from the North West who produce the most incredibly harmonious and beautiful music, simultaneously lowering the heartbeat yet stimulating lyrically." - LIVE review by Ian Cripps @ FATEA Magazine on 28/01/2017

"Vision Thing are a brilliant band! They opened up our last Wigan Diggers Festival - created a beautiful, relaxed, atmosphere that got the day off to a great start."
-Bob Kettle : Merry Hell & Diggers Music Festival Organiser

"These experienced musicians have produced a very respectable repertoire of songs that shout (sorry whisper) mellow, stylish (I love the use of guitar and violin) and exhilarating from start to finish - ideal listening after a stressful day."

- Martin Hovden Mighty FM
 

"The album (Lights) as a whole is a wonderful offering that takes the listener in a melodic haunting and at times emotional journey. So get yourself a copy put it in your CD player and take this enjoyable and thought provoking trip believe me you will not regret it."
- Andy Chamberlain - FATEA Magazine
