Bess-Atwell

From her name to the bewitching purity of her vocal style, there’s something out-of-time about Bess Atwell, an otherworldliness that’s nearer to 50 or 100 years ago than the present. A young folk singer from the South Downs, Atwell came to prominence with 2016’s Hold Your Mind, a collection of songs that added minimal backing to clear melodies reminiscent of Joni Mitchell or Laura Marling. 2018’s new tracks Grace and Swimming Pool add a little full band shading to their lilting phrases, and set the bar high for a stellar 2019.
