out of stock

Championed by Steve Lamacq, this local lass’s extraordinary album was released by Lucy Rose’s Real Kind label.

An entrancing collection of folk-pop chansons that straddles the every day to the magical through her crystalline vocals, it marched straight into our hearts.


A recent recruit to the Brighton shoreline, Bess continues her march straight into our hearts with this entrancing and magical collection of folk-pop chansons. Bess grew up in the English countryside in a creative family of songwriters and artists. Whilst her crystalline vocals draw favourable comparisons to the likes of Marika Hackman and Julia Jacklin, her lyrics evoke an imagery that often spins from the pastoral to the abstract. Handpicked by Lucy Rose for signing to her own label Real Kind Records, Bess is currently being cherished the heck out of on BBC 6 music. “One of the most exciting new voices in English folk” – UNDER THE RADAR “Think this is actually my favourite song of the year so far” – ROISIN O’CONNOR, THE GUARDIAN “One lovely thing this is” – STEVE LAMACQ, 6MUSIC “Fresh and unique” – WONDERLAND “Sublime’” – THE INDEPENDENT
