Marina Allen + Marta Del Grandi
Marina Allen glides on angelic highs, surfing the husky deep; she is one of the great new voices of her generation. Writing songs that carry notes from other realms; these are kitchen table tales about love and fear, the capturing of the wild heart, sketching the breaking of dawn, bringing real life back to life.

Marta Del Grandi
Marta Del Grandi is an award-winning jazz vocalist navigating new territory, crossing borders of genre and style from West Coast ‘60s to ambient exotica, from plaintive Lynchian etherealism to dramatic Morricone scores.
Newly signed to Fire Records, the eclectic Italian-born singer songwriter released her new album ‘Until We Fossilize’ on November 5th 2021.
Filled with thoughts and emotions, stories, rumours and beliefs, ‘Until We Fossilize’ is an unravelling of time and distance; a self-produced gem filled with lush strings, electronic ambience and eclectic vocals. The result of four years of adaptation, transformation and evolution, it’s a new departure for the musician whose journeys across Asia and back again helped her define a new way of working and resulting in a completely different sound.
“Eerie, beautiful and a little foreboding” Brooklyn Vegan
