M. Butterfly is from Brighton, UK. For the past decade he has traded in heartfelt songs about depression, masculinity, queerness (M is openly Bisexual), and protest.
Taking influence from hardened legends such as Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch and John Prine, cult underground artists such as Vic Chesnutt, Low and Sparklehorse and literary giants such as Sylvia Plath, James Baldwin, Yukio Mishima and Leonard Cohen, M crafts songs that are highly lyrical and poetic, whilst holding on to a sparse sense of tradition. Live performances are often met with a silent and attentive audience, allowing M’s strong lyrics to fill the room.
M plays regularly in Brighton, and has had the good fortune of supporting Phoebe Bridgers, Nadia Reid, Jess Williamson and Brighton contemporaries Squid.
M has released 4 albums, recorded to tape on a 4-track, usually at home or in the home of a producer, giving his albums a raw, lo-fi sound that is as intimate as it is vulnerable. He has also self published a book of poetry.
“Soft words sung to the cosmos” – David K Frampton (EYELESS
Maz Clarke sings song poems in a unique style with punk folk roots accompanied by her rhythmic guitar, interested in bass lines and dark edges.
Maz has made two albums in the last two years of blossoming, her debut album ‘Here’, solo with acoustic guitar, and the Pink Sessions Live album with her band Sister Wendy, full of grunge and velvets.
Her current solo performances are intimate songs of experience with a bit of grit, with influences from Dylan, the doors, Gillian Welch and Cat power.
Duskhouse are a four-piece alternative folk band. Duskhouse dive headfirst into the sounds of Americana. What captures you live is the way in which each member complements each other, their dynamic feels deliberate and purposeful. Their music injects warmth even through introspective themes, not least of all thanks to the appearance of a harmonica and their switching around of instruments and roles. Layered-yet-delicate sounding.
