Singer/songwriter and theatre composer PAUL MOSLEY’s musical adventures have taken in an Icelandic farmers choir, horror soundtracks, a suite based on bird song and music inspired by kids TV classic ‘The Clangers’ as well as tours with Shane MacGowan, Jamie Lawson, Eddi Reader and Neko Case. His last project ‘The Butcher’ an epic folk opera introduced him to a new crowd of young folk musicians and fans with The Quietus calling it ‘A darkened folk masterpiece’ and Folk Radio UK and Resonance.fm both making it an album of the year.

Blending soulful melancholia with the controlled artistry of a classically trained singer, HANNAH NICHOLSON gives voice to the light and dark of the human condition. Having previously performed as one half of the Manchester based psych-folk duo Bird to Beast, coupled with her extensive session work – including Maz (Snarky Puppy) and Ellie Goulding- she has gone on to create her own individual musical identity: a blend of choral, electro and folk, stitched together with a thread that runs from J.S. Bach to Judee Sill and Jane Weaver.
