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.
