SnowPoet brings together the writing duo of Chris Hyson and Lauren Kinsella. Both musicians write the music and words in tandem, a new departure for them both. They work together to bring melody, form and poetry to a new setting. Inspired in equal parts by artists such as Bjork, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, Philip Larkin, E.E Cummings and Everything Everything, the group explores the beauty of the song form in all its complexity. Heavily influenced by an alternative folk and indie genre, SnowPoet seek out new ways of telling a story. SnowPoet are vocalist Lauren Kinsella, bassist Chris Hyson and pianist Matt Robinson, saxophonist Josh Arcoleo, guitarist Nick Costley-White and drummer Dave Hamblett.
