Brighton-based visual artist and singer-songwriter Jnnwoo’s critically-acclaimed debut ‘Your Baby’ E.P. resulted in his named one of The Independent’s ‘Faces to Watch 2015’. His long-awaited debut album ‘Strangers Bring Me No Light.’ is released on the much respected Cargo label on 2nd Sept.

The album features collaborations with Malcolm Middleton, Alasdair Roberts, Kami Thompson (The Rails) and Kylie La Grange. Jinnwoo’s confessional reel is one sung in a voice so distinctive no adequate comparisons can be made, but the story-telling style of Bob Dylan, the fragile delivery of troubadour Michael Stipe, and the jagged alt-folk of early Throwing Muses have been raised as a starting point. His sparse atmospheric folk-soundscapes, laced with ghostly string arrangements and his exceptional acoustic guitar work, offer a kind of ‘spooked’ ‘gothic’ folk that sounds like no other. ‘Strangers Bring Me No Light’ is nothing short of a seminal record and Jinnwoo a true original.

The Independent – “jinnwoo is the most singular new folk talent in some time” 4/5

.

The Guardian – “Jinnwoo’s gothic folk-croak is a confessional reel unspooling from his innards, a tale of circling doom”

.

The Line of Best Fit – “A rising talent in the folk world, Jinnwoo has been setting hearts ablaze with his off-kilter guitarisms and distinct, emotive vocals.”

Known for her quirky, insightful, poetic lyrics and insidious melodies, Ruth Theodore‘s use of unconventional guitar techniques and tunings has thrilled listeners since the release of her 2007 debut, ‘Worm Food’. Her iminent new album saw Ruth crossing the Atlantic to collaborate with Todd Sickafoose, best known for his work with Ani DiFranco and recently producer of two award-winning albums for Anais Mitchell.
As Todd himself notes… “Ruth writes alternative folk and blues music but at heart she is a pure punk San Franciscan beat poet”.

Chris Brambley is guitarist with UK band The Sticklers and James McKeen & The Blueberry Moon. His solo work is firmly based in the acoustic folk tradition, with an intricate fingerpicking style reminiscent of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, and echoes of James Taylor in his beautifully crafted songs.
