This London-based group born out of a musical friendship and understanding fuses together the writing duo of Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year Lauren Kinsella and composer / multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. Inspired in equal parts by artists such as Bjork, Sylvia Plath, Joni Mitchell, EE Cummings, Tom Waits, Ólöf Arnalds and John Cage, the group explores 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.

“Snowpoet’s eponymous debut album is an ethereal, psychedelic, and magical combination of lyrical, nature inspired poetry and modern innovative folk music that incorporates a shimmering acoustic instrumentation, and near-classical/post-rock inspirations.” Folk Radio

“Like being punched in the face by a butterfly.” Mara Carlyle BBC Radio 3
