Bec Garthwaite pours an innately detailed craftsmanship into her songwriting. Her fingerpicked guitar strings construct a cat’s cradle in which her gentle, defiant voice can unfold itself, syllable by syllable, note by deliberate note. There’s a sense of wry melancholy in her dreamlike sound, as though she has looked right into the kaleidoscope and needs to tell us, with quiet assurance and lyrical poetry, what she saw between the lines .

As a longstanding member of dreamfolk trio Hands of the Heron, she has contributed performed at festivals and venues across the UK, and contributed multiple songs to their repertoire including ‘Softly Spoken Woman’, ‘Making Space’ and ‘Skipping Rope’. Her debut solo album is currently in the works, and we hope to release it sometime in 2023.
