“It’s worth giving this your proper, undivided attention … it’s not the devil you’ll find in the details, but a real slice of the divine.”  Folk Radio

Carrie’s honesty and humour create a relaxed intimate setting. She touches a deep place in listeners with her thoughtful lyrics and soulful melodies. With a mesmerising voice and rhythmical, fluid guitar,  she dives deep into acoustic folk soul. The Carrie Tree Trio also features with Rowan Sterk and Sophia Efthimiou.

August and After
August and After are an indie-folk trio based in London. They weave together rich three part harmonies on classically inspired layers of guitar, viola, piano, synth and percussion. Songwriters Ned and Vedantha originally met whilst studying at Cambridge. After countless nights spent honing their vocal harmonies and intricate guitar playing, they moved to London where they met Jordan, a classical violist, studying at the Royal Academy of Music. The three whiled away an afternoon on London’s Southbank, talking about their favourite musicians; the likes of Bon Iver and Kings of Convenience. They formed as August and
After, and after many sold-out London shows, support slots for artists such as Ghostpoet and Scott Matthews, a Ronnie Scott’s residency, several European tours and a set at Secret Garden Party 2016, they travelled to Paris to record their debut EP, Cascades, with French producer Jonathan Lefèvre-Reich.
With support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Kerrang! Radio and a stream of online press, and Wolves featured on Spotify UK’s official Your Coffee Break playlist garnering over half a million, the band are set to announce plans to release their follow up to Cascades in the summer
