A band built around the coveted skills and friendship of prize winning vocalist Lauren Kinsella and multi instrumentalist Chris Hyson, Snowpoet came together in London in 2012 with a passion for song writing and a desire to celebrate the common ground between modern folk, poetry inspired text and ambient electronica. Lauren and Chris’s songs have been described as “refreshingly original and remarkably deep” (Notes and Vibes) and “the band don’t just create music, they create art” (Wicked Child). Their 2016 debut simply entitled Snowpoet released to critical acclaim draws comparisons to artists such as Bjork and Olaf Arnolds, while citing influences as diverse as Joni Mitchell and Ravel. Their music is regularly featured on BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio 3, RTE Lyric FM and on major radio stations worldwide including Germany, Ireland, Sweden, Austria and Scotland. They continue to sell out shows at major International festivals and their fan base is a growing testament to the accessibility found in their original music that defies genre.
