Sincere Deceivers are Matt Glover (vocals, acoustic guitar), Tim Davies (electric guitar, vocals), and Dom Main (cello, vocals). A long way from the rolling hills of home, the Yorkshire natives have developed a folk driven sound, rooted in the storytelling tradition, drawing on a variety of contemporary influences. In 2015 they released their first EP, Autumnal Dreams, launching it at St Pancras Old Church, and followed it with notable shows for Songwriting Magazine, Sofar Sounds and Folkroom Records. In 2019 Sincere Deceivers released two singles, ‘Gladness’ and ‘Hot Handed’. Their music has been described by Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6) as displaying“perfect poise [and] understated intelligence”, and has received local and national airplay, including support from BBC 6 Music .
Two compelling musicians drawn together by an expansive approach to song and interpretation, guitar-vocal duo James Kitchman (UK) and Sylvia Schmidt (DE) share an affinity for the Anglo-American folk songs of the Appalachian mountains. The debut album ‘As Long As Songbirds Sing’ is due for release in June 2020, and includes the track ‘I Wonder As I Wander’ which was selected by BBC Radio 3 to be aired on the Christmas eve ‘Breakfast Show’, 2019.
