Lonely Drifter Karen was born from the union of three people with very different geographical and musical backgrounds (from folk and rock to cabaret, experimental, classical, indie pop & more).
Started as a solo project by Viennese-born Tanja Frinta while she was living in Sweden, LDK became a band when Tanja moved to Barcelona and met Italian drummer Giorgio Menossi and Mallorcan keyboard player and arranger Marc Meliá Sobrevias. Their sparkling debut album Grass Is Singing was released in 2008 to wide acclaim, and drove Lonely Drifter Karen to perform all around Europe. True to their drifter spirit, Tanja and Marc have now relocated to Brussels, while Giorgio still lives on the sunny shores of the Mediterranean. Fall Of Spring, their second album, is due for release in the spring of 2010.
Rokhsan’s solo work has a beautifully crafted charm of folk, soul and pop with a touch of Eastern frailty in her vocal phrasing. This has created a small storm at radio and in A & R circles way ahead of her first single release on Worst Case Scenario records in October 08. In June a performance witnessed by key Radio 1 staff led to a crowd pleasing Glastonbury slot on the BBC Introducing stage. Imminent shows at Bestival and Manchester’s In The City, quite simply because they love her, are all clear signs of big things to come.
Made by four beards uniting with cups of tea and a drum machine, The Dufflefolks make electronic music in a cold shed and sometimes a small bedroom. With odd instrumentation such as an autoharp, glockenspiel, kaoscilator and a tenori on, they produce an eclectic sound full of different colours. Be sure to catch them and their beautiful animal costumes.
