AUDIOLINE THIS MONTH’S BAND


BAND MEMBERS Milly Hirst


SOUNDS LIKE Pastoral songs of love, vulnerability, femininity and longing betray a soul and maturity far beyond her years.


INFLUENCES With access to her Dad’s extensive record collection as a child, Milly has drawn some eclectic influences. Her music feels like an inheritor of a musical tradition that includes Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and, more latterly, the likes of Laura Marling and Nina Nastasia.


BIOG Becoming a prominent figure in the thriving and Norwich folk scene, Milly Hirst's music has enchanted wherever she has plied her trade. Originally from Cambridge, Milly has been a performing singer/songwriter for the best part of 10 years, when not making music she can be found admiring beards, drinking wine and climbing really, really big trees... Her hypnotic and intimate voice alone has regularly proven capable of transforming “drunken chatter” into “rapt attention”. And her songwriting creates a world where narratives spin out beyond the halls, walls, rooms, and kitchens to bear against the dark. Having struggled with the recording process for the best part of 10 years, it took the very calming presence of Will Vaughan at Toad Row Studios and confrontations with metaphorical demons in East Africa to finally commit 5 songs to record. Te songs themselves are mostly narratives, fictional characters or places weaved amongst real experiences and the record culminates into a gentle, contemplative, and slightly haunting debut EP.
