One of Britain’s world class singer-songwriters, Thea Gilmore returns with her razor sharp lyrics, melodic flair and honey toned voiced.
Oxfordshire’s Thea Gilmore began writing at a very early age, shortly after she added music to her writing, the British music press were describing her as “one of the few world class female singer-songwriters Britain has ever produced.”
Her albums have hit the UK charts, with her fourth album ‘Avalanche’ also being home to successful lead singles ‘Juliet’ and ‘Mainstream’, and her more recent albums “Harpo’s Ghost” and Murphys Heart” also topping the charts. Gilmore has toured extensively throughout the US and Canada, and has collaborated with the likes of Sting, Mike Scott, Martha Wainwright, Joan as Policewoman and Eliza Carthy.
Her razor sharp lyrics, melodic flair and honey toned voice have been admired by wide ranging contemporaries from Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Richard Thompson, Neil Gaiman, David Baddeil and William Boyd.
Gilmore is blazing her own path towards classic status as a songwriter” – The Guardian.
