Gris-de-Lin is a singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist from Bridport, Dorset. Her music is a heady mix of post-rock, blues and alt-folk peppered with warped electronics; the songs are narrative and lyrical.
Initially releasing a hand-made 7” vinyl followed by an EP (which led to glowing reviews, BBC6Music radio play and a live session for BBC Introducing) – her debut album 'Sprung' was released by BB*Island in April 2018. It was recorded in a nursery school, and saw her playing virtually all of the instruments herself – from guitars and synths to drums and saxophone. Working with producer/engineer Chris Hamilton (know for his work with Squarepusher/Torres/Kite-Base) she also drafted in Rob Ellis (P.J.Harvey/Anna Calvi) to play drums on several tracks.
Gris-de-Lin has also been working with other artists including Tunng, The Duke Spirit (she plays saxophone & piano on their new album Sky is Mine as well as playing live with the band), Joe Gideon & Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Sonic Youth) with whom she is currently recording/co-producing a new album and Berlin-based artist Gemma Ray.
