Featured in BBC Music Clips


The Miserable Rich are a chamber pop band, formed in 2007 and based in Brighton, England. The band is known for its distinctive, chamber orchestra sound, created using cello and violin as the primary lead instruments, augmented by double bass, acoustic guitar and occasionally piano. They have released three albums, Twelve Ways To Count (2008), Of Flight & Fury (2010) and Miss You In The Days (2011).

The band's name comes from an experience Will Calderbank and James de Malplaquet had at the wedding of two rich aristocrats.
