Fantastic Indie/rock/folk singer/songwriter with huge amounts of talent. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically superb and the music is just pure and invigorating. Well worth checking her out.
Rhiannon Mair has music in her blood; her DNA a dancing double-helix of vibrant musicality and song-writing savvy.
Born and raised in Colchester, she was surrounded by music and musicians from an early age. A childhood love of drums progressing to acoustic guitar in her teens, playing in bands and writing songs seemed “far more interesting than doing GCSEs”. Later moving to London to study Music Tech, Rhiannon continued to play and write songs, admiring the work of musicians such as Brian Molko (Placebo) and Matthew Bellamy (Muse).
A growing interest in folk and singer-songwriters led her to artists like KT Tunstall, Bjork and John Mayer. Her eclectic playing experience has produced an exciting and energetic live performer with an edgy style and great stage presence. A hybrid of Alanis Morrisette and KT Tunstall, but with her own distinctive voice and vocal delivery, Rhiannon Mair is impossible to ignore.
The 2013 release of her debut album, It Goes Like This – entirely fan-funded through Pledge Music – showcased the talent of a fresh, credible recording artist and caught the attention of the local music scene. After just one year, Rhiannon has headlined her own shows and supported performers such as Fiona Bevan, Kal Lavelle, Keston Cobblers Club and Emma Stevens; in addition to securing herself a slot at last year’s Latitude Festival.
With almost an entire year spent relentlessly gigging across the UK and writing new material, Rhiannon returns with a brand new EP – set for release in October and once again funded entirely from fans through Pledge Music.
With a UK tour lined up and more new material yet to be released, Rhiannon Mair looks set to build on her growing reputation as one of the region’s brightest and talented singer-songwriters.
