Folklore presents… MUTE SWIMMER and MOCK DEER

 

Mute Swimmer is the principal musical project of the Berlin-based British artist Guy Dale. With a changing cast of collaborators and players, he has described the project as being ‘governed by grace, doubt and sabotage’. As fascinated with extending the songwriting form as he is in dismantling it – his songs are approached with the tactics of an artist. Intense, poignant and ironically funny by turns mute swimmer create beguiling music, hewn from disparate strands of art, folk music and alternative rock in singular fashion.

‘deft deconstructions…a performer that commands attention…intense and revealing’ – Argus

As well as writing original music for theatre and television he has released two EPs, ‘Cold and Bright’ and more recently ‘How We Used to Live’ released in July 2015. His renewed involvement in the live music scene has seen him play shows supporting great acts such as The Burning Hell (Can), Rainbrother (DK), Sam Brookes (UK) and Kristin McClement (UK) as well as appearing at several UK festivals, including numorous performances at Festival N6, Wilderness Festival, Ramsbottom Festival, The End & Uncivilization Festival

He is currently recording an album with producer Scott Fitzgerald and collaborating with many friends he’s met on the way, The Album promises to be something special and is set for release in late spring 2019.
