Caroline Weeks AKA Ginger Lee of Mercury Nominated band Bat For Lashes plays solo, performing her enchantingly minimal and off-kilter folk including songs from Caroline's debut Ep "Five Songs" (Minimal Vinyl Records). In 2008 Caroline covered 'The Drowning Man' for a tribute album to the Cure which includes covers by Kaki King, The Dandy Warhols, XU XU Fang and Bat For Lashes.
After a stint as member of noise band and Franz Ferdinand feted , I Love Lucy, Joanne formed the art collective Blood ‘n Feathers with Lucy Stein which met with critical acclaim including the prestigious Becks Futures show 2006. Now solo and part member of MEMEME, Joanne's debut album "The Lighter" (Textile Records) has been described as "a collection of intimate interior portraits, reminiscent in spots of Sybille Baier, Barbara Manning, even Hope Sandoval, but all performed with an addictive off-kilter grace that suspends time in a very special way." Byron Coley .
Laish's (Daniel Green) music has been described as a journey into lo-fi experimentalism with an eerie folk angle. Daniel's vocals are tinged with melancholy and a simplistic yet, effectively beautiful guitar arrangements being compared with British folk star Adem.
Influenced by classic singer songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake and more recent Americana and folk scene contemporaries like Iron & Wine and Josh Rouse, Conrad’s compositions are fresh and intelligent, with a timeless relevance.
