Christof - Many years ago in a small village in the south of the Low Countries, a tousle haired nine year old Dutch boy picked up a guitar. Christof’s journey had begun…Hailing from the Lowlands of Holland, singer songwriter Christof composes contemporary folk music from the heart. Inspired in early childhood by the classical singing of his mother and the guitarpickings of his father, Christof has spent the last number of years perfecting his trade (and his collection of stories) as a travelling troubadour across Europe and further afield. He draws his inspiration from the people he meets and the places he lives from the damp cobbled streets of Galway on Ireland’s Atlantic coast to the bustle and life of London Town.
The Diamond Family Archive …haunting, fragile, sublime lo-fi melancholia, atmospheric, lazy grace…some of the words used to describe The Diamond Family Archive. Strange and tender songs; personal and pastoral themes; mixed with sleepy-eyed awe creating intense, elegiac, spectral folk with a distinctly British sound.
Jess Hall grew up near the coastline of North Devon and started writing songs about the quirks of love and life just before moving to the starkly landlocked Oxford five years ago. Since that time she has established herself on the local scene with her simple stunning clarity of voice and images of coastal love and loss.
