Swallow and The Wolf

Locations: London


Suffolk boy Russell and Australian girl Jess tell stories of every day passions, extraordinary moments and unsung heroes. Their sound is driven and picked acoustic guitar, mercurial, bass heavy piano lines, lo-fi drums, rich cello lines and melodic vocal harmonies.

The duo have picked up support from Tom Robinson and Chris Hawkins at BBC6, Sophie Little BBC Norfolk, Billy Butler BBC Merseyside, and John Govier BBC Devon.

Their latest record Fire EP was recorded with Oliver Som and Cy Reynolds at Guy Chamber's Sleeper Studios (Robbie Williams, Miles Kane, Katy B).

The result is an epic, yet intimate record - balancing poetic lyrics with widescreen sounds. In the past year the duo have driven across the Country in a DIY tour of the UK, and with piano and guitar in hand rocked on and off trains and buses across Germany and Holland.

They've curated and hosted music events for Private Member Clubs Apartment 58 and Record Club as Beatnik Events - notably praised in the Telegraph as 'passionate promoters...a real community spirit' and by Run Riot as being 'passionate about nurturing new talent'.

They've supported Simone Felice (of The Felice Brothers), Rachel Sermanni, Gilmore and Roberts, Phildel, Jake Morley, Kimberly Anne, Kal Lavelle and Jamie Lawson.
