We are pleased to kick start 2012 with stalwart of the Bristol writing scene Louise Gethin and acoustic, country indie band Furlined.
Louise Gethin writes short stories influenced by love and death and anything in between. Bristol-based and bred, she has written a number of pieces that capture the flavour of city, including Ship’s Diary and Night Out. She is a co-founding member of the Bristol Writers Group and was included in this year’s anthology Hidden Bristol with her story Heaven’s Below. Her writing ambition is to publish her collection of short stories Anecdotes of Love and Death.
Peerless songs, rich vocals and lush, swooning cello define Furlined, a Bristol-based band formed in 2007 by singer-songwriter Neil Crossley and cellist Tegan Everett.
In 2008 the band released their debut album Love Comes In Canisters, which attracted much acclaim in publications such as Billboard, Clash and Rock ‘n’ Reel.
That same year, the duo recruited bassist Graham Dalzell and drummer Greg White into their ranks, and the subsequent four-piece have since blossomed into a powerful and magnetic live act.
In March 2012, Furlined will release their second album Win A Dream Wedding, and undertake a UK tour and press/radio campaign to promote the new release.

Britain is booming and Molly moves to London from deepest Cornwall full of naive dreams, high hopes and on a quest to make her life just like the movies. Then on 7/7/2005, she finds herself on a tube blown up by terrorists and her life is forced to take a different direction. Funny, frank and poetic; this is the true story of what happened next and how we put things back together after they’ve been blown apart.
Molly Naylor is a writer and performer. Her first solo show, Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010 to critical acclaim and is touring nationally throughout 2011. She has adapted the show for radio and it will air on BBC Radio 4 this year. Molly has written for the Independent and her poems have been featured on BBC Radio and in publications including The Rialto, the Londonist and Pen Pusher. She has performed at a variety of festivals and events worldwide. Her first book – an illustrated text of her live show – is available from Nasty Little Press.
