Heavily influenced by her 94-year-old artistic grandmother, Aussie born Fetherstone brings together her musical past in jazz, her current inspirations from the London electronic pop scene, combines them with her deeply reflective stories. Based in London since 2015, the Debut EP (4 tracks released April-July 2017) was produced and engineered by London native Harry Tarlton (Kobalt, Union J, Stooshe, WarnerUK), with the last single "Two Hands On Deck" hand picked by Newton Faulkner to feature on the Richer Unsigned record store day vinyl compilation, April 2018.
Fetherstone's songwriting is hard to define; its not straight ahead pop yet there's electronic loops and catchy melodies, there's jazz in the chords, folk in the vocal harmonies but the thing that stands out is the story driven, descriptive and introspective lyrics. With her 94-year-old grandmother being one of her biggest inspirations, Fetherstone has always been surrounded by art and the contemplative thinking that comes with it. Her live shows captivate audiences using a loop/effects pedal, percussion and electronic drums, alongside her plays Henry Mitton on Synth and Harriet Langley on guitar. Recent shows include The Camden Assembly supporting Frida Sundemo (SWEDEN), Richer Unsigned Live at Melomania, TV Nights Upstairs at Ronnie Scott's, The Servant Jazz Quarters supporting Ella Janes (UK), Live at The Bedford, The Troubadour supporting The Modern Strangers (UK). With seven years of experience performing jazz on an International stage under ‘Briana Cowlishaw’, some past notable performances include the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, VIVID Sydney, Urbanscapes (Kuala Lumpur), The Edinburgh Jazz Festival, The Hemnes Jazz Festival and The Chilpo International Music Festival (Korea).
The new release from Fetherstone “Ticket to You”, is the first single of her Unspoken Stories series. The Project will see Fetherstone travelling to different cities around the world, searching for stories from friends and strangers. She will team up with songwriters, producers and artists of other mediums to bring those stories to life, record and release them, and then travel back to the city where the story came from to perform the song.
The single is due out Friday 30th November 2018 with a single launch on 3rd December at The Fiddler’s Elbow, Camden. The launch show will explore storytelling through a live vocal painting, a Nashville style songwriter round, an exhibition of Lee Kay-Barry oil on canvas paintings and a set from Fetherstone to close the night.
