Gill Sandell plays accordion and flute, and sings backing vocals, as part of Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo. She regularly collaborates with other musicians and bands, and in recent years has also developed as an independent singer/songwriter and guitarist. Her album Tarry Awhile features contributions from fellow bandmembers of Timothy Victor's Folk Orchestra, Magoo, and The Red Clay Halo.
At Cambridge Folk Festival in 2004 Gill met Emily Barker, an encounter that provided the seed for Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo, with whom Gill now performs and tours. Over the last ten years Gill has also recorded and gigged with Magoo (playing keyboards, flute and accordion) and with Chris T-T, and now plays accordion and other instruments with Buzzard Lope. She played on a number of Peel Sessions for the late great John Peel, with Magoo, Chris T-T and The Broken Family Band.
The debut album Tarry Awhile contains contributions from musicians in all these bands, and draws on influences from the variety of music that they offer.
Evi Vine is a singer/songwriter emerging from the UK’s underground music scene. She has been inspired by such diverse artists as Leonard Cohen, the Cocteau Twins, Arvo Part and Nine Inch Nails. Raw and emotive, Evi’s powerful, but minimalist narrative style is very much her own.
Her voice is variously described as haunting and other-worldly; her lyrics tell of isolation, sex, death and alienation, but it is her potent and mesmerising performances that really draw you in. Few performers can consistently deliver such an impassioned, emotional and hypnotic show as Evi Vine.
‘waverley keys’ compose their music jointly through structured improvisation inspired by landscapes, film, and both popular and classical music. Steph Patten (Cello) has played and recorded with many artists including Jonny Neesom, Phildel, Orchestra Elastique, Orlando Seale and his Orchestra, Hush the Many, Katy Carr and the Aviators and David Ryder Prangley.
Ella Baruch (Viola) is a graduate student at the Royal College of Music and has played and recorded with artists including Belle and Sebastian (with London Contemporary Orchestra), Stars of the Lid, Catherine AD, Plan B, Ayanna Witter Johnson, Riz MC, Orchestra Elastique and DJ IQ; she has also written for the stage.
Max Wilson (Piano) studied composition at the Royal Academy of Music, and has had works performed on concert platforms including The Huddersfield Festival; The South Bank Centre; Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool; De Doelen, Rotterdam. He has written for theatre and broadcast media.a.
