Gwyneth Herbert Short Info

Gwyneth Herbert is a strikingly original vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist.

With one foot in the jazz world and the other somewhere in the future, she's worked in collaboration with writers, musicians, directors, choreographers, visual artists, academics, clowns, pirates and young people to make a huge canon of genre-defying interdisciplinary work. She has released six critically acclaimed albums to date and toured internationally, including a large-scale theatre tour of her latest album The Sea Cabinet.

Performing as a 5-piece band or a unique multi-instrumental duo, Gwyneth takes you on a journey through her wide and varied musical world. Expect tales of sea-drenched sirens, East End vagrants, jaded seaside hotels, loves and losses, drinks, drips, drops... and the occasional Swahili sing-along.

✭✭✭✭✭ “Brilliantly original” MOJO
✭✭✭✭✭ “A remarkably gifted talent” The Guardian
"Classic Bowie-like pop, belting blues and gorgeous jazz" The Times
