So the story begins back in the summer. Whilst dog sitting in lovely Suffolk I received an email from Belinda and Heidi Aka folk duo O'Hooley & Tidow asking whether I might be interested in illustrating their second album "The Fragile", a follow up to their critically acclaimed debut "Silent June".
"Hoorah!" and "Of Course!" I replied and now many months later the first stunning single "The Last Polar Bear" has been released.
Folk Radio described O'Hooley and Tidow's unique sound better than I can so you can expect to hear.....
Haunting piano, soaring strings and warm harmonies which combine beautifully. These dapper-suited gentlewomen have an unconventional, wryly observant, melancholic and sometimes uncomfortable take on life; creating their very own brand of contemporary folk song.
