Supporting Frank will be
GUISE is the voice and heart of Jessica Guise. Possessed of a remarkable folk lilt, she sings with delicacy whilst imparting dry wit and vicious asides. After the success of their first EP, “The Fun Part”, in 2020, Guise released their first studio album“Youngest Daughter” on Xtra Mile, produced by Jess’ husband, Frank Turner. Reaching number 18 in the Official Folk Chart, the album received rave reviews; “a staggering debut from Guise who are surely going to take over the indie-folk scene” (Vinyl Chapters). Building up her live profile supporting the likes of Richard Thompson, Jon Boden, and Will Varley, Guise is an entertainer at heart and her openness, vulnerability and sense of humour set her apart. ♫♪♪
It’s not often you come across a voice with such controlled power: even at the emotional heights and depths of the songs, Rob’s voice retains a purity and focus that is all too rare. Rob’s music is filled with real life experiences, performed in his own compelling style, with acoustic guitar accompanied by a variation of foot percussion, bringing you somewhere between Passenger and Newton Faulkner. 2023 has already been quite the year for Rob, playing such festivals as; Victorious, Carfest, Wickham and Purbeck along with selling out shows in both Winchester (The Railway) and Southampton (The Joiners and Heartbreakers). With a debut album due out in early 2024 this hard-working renegade of the live music scene continues to make waves, keeping up his consistent gigging that’s seen him grace stages across the UK and Europe. ♫♪♪
