Bess Atwell

London Calling 2019, Friday


Bess Atwell is “your new ethereal folk-pop princess” (Wonderland Magazine). In 2015, not long after dropping out of university to pursue music, Atwell garnered the attention of major news outlets after a slew of showcases for The Great Escape Festival. Her latest EP ‘Big Blue’ released in May 2019 was recorded last summer at Soup Studios in East London with producer Giles Barrett (John Grant, Johnny Flynn, Goat Girl). Bess and her band worked on the arrangements in their hometown of Brighton before taking them into the studio for four ambitious days of tracking.
