Biography

Changing Horses are a quirky British, pop, folk, indie, rock male and female duo who formed in November 2007 whilst based in Preston. Comprised of Richard Birtill (vocals and guitar) and Francesca Cullen (vocals, violin, mandolin and melodeon) the band have a sound of their own, mixing the psychedelic folk of The Incredible String Band with the experimental art-punk of The Fall finished off with a coating of the kind of pop sensibility found in an Abba classic.

Their stripped-down raw instrumental live act, alongside their hard-hitting and often satirical lyrics have found them positioned easily alongside act such as Ade Edmondson, Jeffrey Lewis, Adam Green (The mouldy Peaches) and Pat Sansone (Wilco) with whom they have shared the bill. Their unique sound has also found them being received, with equally high-regard, by audiences ranging from Crawley Folk festival to Kendal Calling. Changing Horses also completed a successful tour in Spain in March 2010.

“10/10″ Review- The Ark.

“A fresh sound for fans of bands like The White Stripes, David Byrne, Talking Heads and Kate Bush”- T-Schnieders, Associated Contents.

“This UK based duo, made up of Richard Birtill and Francesca Cullen, have mastered the art of quirky Americana, displaying a knack for folksy acoustic pop ditties that stick in your ears like glue.”-
Mish Mash Music.

“While some artists are content to just dip their toes in the pool of creativity, England’s Changing Horses choose to disregard the ‘no horseplay’ sign and go straight for the running cannonball approach.”-
