The result is a tapestry of heartache and comprehension, realised in record form with the help of friend and musical ally Tamu Massif, members of Champs and legendary producer John Parish. The latter helped add permanence to ‘Brother’, a song written in a drunken black-out and nearly lost to the ether, devoted to the one boy who’s never let her down.
Having fallen in love with a broader live sound, Fenne now plays alongside bassist Joe Sherrin (of Slonk / Milo’s Planes) and drummer Dan Lane. The three piece have performed at a number of festivals this summer including show-stoppers at Green Man, Wilderness & Festival No. 6 and sold out a headline show at Borderline, London this October before heading off in support of Lucy Dacus around the UK. Fenne makes her debut in the US with Andy Shauf this November.
