Snowpoet – Debut Album
The London-based Snowpoet fuses together the writing duo of Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year Lauren Kinsella and composer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. Snowpoet bring melody, form and text to a new setting. Inspired in equal parts by artists such as Bjork, Sylvia Plath, Joni Mitchell, EE Cummings, Tom Waits, Ólöf Arnalds and John Cage. The group features Josh Arcoleo (sax), Nick Costley-White (guitar), Matt Robinson (piano) and Dave Hamblett (drums) and together they explore the beauty of original composition and song form in all its complexity. Heavily influenced by alternative folk and indie genres, Snowpoet seek out new ways of storytelling.
