When Rozi Plain upped sticks from her hometown of Winchester, she settled in the West Country capital of Bristol. Here, she took musical inspiration from her job painting the ferries that bob along the city's main river artery, the Avon. Her songs possess a plucky sense of charisma and brilliantly capture life's ephemeral nature: each track a beautiful snapshot of fragility, intimacy and gentle melody. Together with her older brother Sam (aka Romanhead), and her pal Rachael Dadd, she was a founding member of the Cleaner Records collective, a loose assortment of musicians based in Bristol.
The unassuming charm of Rozi's live show has led to tours across Europe, the UK & USA. Along the way she has traversed countries and continents together with such like-minded luminaries as Devendra Banhart, KT Tunstall, James Yorkston and Viking Moses, as well as many appearances at festivals such as Green Man and End of the Road and opening the Park Stage at Glastonbury 2013. A BBC6 favourite Rozi has perfomred numerous live sessions for Marc Riley and Lauren Laverne. Whether performing alone or with an assembly of her regular musical allies (including François & the Atlas Mountains, This Is The Kit, Rachael Dadd and Being There) her uncluttered songs and effortless hooks create a blissful, singular voice.
Rozi is also a touring member of This Is The Kit and is now based in London.
Chance McCoy is a Grammy winning Indie Folk musician from West Virginia. After receiving a grant to study with old master musicians from the Appalachian Mountains, he went on to win the Fiddle, Banjo and Dulcimer championships in his home state. His studies and deep love for the traditional ways of the mountaineer soon landed him in an unintentional situation though, abject poverty. In 2012 Chance was living in a run down cabin when a cold call from Old Crow Medicine Show landed him an invite to join the legendary Americana band of 'Wagon Wheel' fame. His first album with Old Crow, where he debuted his talents as song writer, singer and instrumentalist, earned the band a Grammy for best folk album. After touring with artists such as Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, Willie Nelson, Sturgil Simpson, Margo Price and other luminaries, he turned his focus towards making his first solo record. His first LP 'Wander Wide' set to be released in 2019 is a collection of masterfully written songs woven with threads of folk, indie, and rock, with pop hooks laden through out. Straying far from clichéd Americana it's an incredibly creative take on the modern singer song writer, wherein each song was written specifically for it's unique placement on the album, unfolding into different landscapes of light and shade as it takes the listener on a musical journey. Chance currently lives on his farm in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia where he enjoys a rustic back to the land lifestyle, creating music and producing films.
