Debut Album Release - July 28th 2017
The Bird Who Sings Freedom is the debut album by Georgia Lewis, who has been hailed as the best voice to emerge from the English folk scene in recent years.
Well-worn traditional songs sit alongside two originals, an A.E. Housman poem and, opening the album, a setting of the words of Maya Angelou. Throughout, Georgia seeks timeless themes in old words. Stories of love, loss, conflict and betrayal.
Produced by Lewis with Josh Clark (Kate Rusby's Life In A Paper Boat), the album features Evan Carson (bodhrán) and Tom Sweeney (bass) alongside longtime bandmates Felix Miller (guitar) and Rowan Piggott (fiddle).
The Bird Who Sings Freedom is a glorious cocktail of modern folk influences, a potent statement of intent and a first glimpse at a burgeoning talent who looks set to put her stamp on English folk music.
