It may seem strange to come out of hibernation during the winter but Amelia Coburn says she feels just like that.

Having spent the past few years studying and travelling and playing around the world it’s time for the BBC Young Folk Awards nominee to devote her time to what she does best and deliver on her promise. Evolving from her roots as a purely covers artists (but what covers! Life On Mars, Ghosts Town, Wuthering Heights) she is moving into the realms of a classic songwriter. Her evocative, poetic and beguiling original material seems to come from some mystical wellspring of cosmic music.

Much like her heroes Cole Porter, Paul McCartney and Kate Bush her songs sound like they have been around for eternity yet sound like nobody else. With subject matter ranging from mythical pirate captains, post-mortem revenge, sleep paralysis and other less-trodden paths she manages to weave stories into richly detailed pieces that are, at once, folk infused and familiar yet other-worldly. All delivered in her unique, expressive and often haunting voice and maturing with each song/performance, you really need to catch her live in this intimate setting before she ascends into the songwriter stratosphere.

Support comes from Frazer Lambert. Although Stockton born and bred, Frazer crafted his musical skills in the cafes of Amsterdam in the late 90s before taking his songs around the world and back home again. In the early part of the second decade, Frazer took a step back from live music until joining the infamous and much-loved Teesside male voice choir, Infant Hercules.

This inspired him to find his own musical voice again, picking up his dusty guitar and becoming a prolific, soulful alt-folk troubadour. His original songs reflect the history and ever-changing landscape of his native Teesside. Fans of James Taylor, Vin Garbutt and American soul music of the 1960s and 70s will find much to fall in love with in Frazer’s voice and music.
