Caroline Weeks is a music and visual artist who works both independently and collaboratively. She has recorded an album of solo works called Songs For Edna on Manimal Vinyl, a collection of settings of the poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay. Caroline has also recorded and performed with Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes which included touring with Radiohead on their In Rainbows tour where she met Philip Selway (drummer of Radiohead) which sparked another musical project. Caroline is also creatively involved in projects with Collectress and Triangulation.
Mary Hampton is a composer, lyricist and singer looking outwards from the folksong, art song and chamber music traditions. Interpreting material gathered from disparate quarters, she places ancient songs alongside new ones, settings of literary prose and poetry, wordless music, and sounds from the world at large.
She has recorded 2 EPs (Book One and Book Two), and 2 LPs (My Mother's Children and Folly). She was awarded a Paul Hamlyn Foundation award for composition in 2017, and is currently the composer-in-residence at West Dean College.
