About this item

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. Gris-de-Lin's debut album 'Sprung' 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 (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 Tungg, The Duke Spirit, Joe Gideon & Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Sonic Youth) and Berlin-based artist Gemma Ray. She also composes music for television and film.

Gris-de-Lin (a name inspired by a character from Turkish folklore - a wise bird that could speak!) grew up in the West Country, with parents who were big into the folk and world music scene. After years in London her heart lured her back to the sea. Bridport, where she's now based, is a quirky place with a dramatic coastline, a hearty pub-culture and a thriving arts scene for a small town. Local festivals embrace the mundane (hats, onions, cider!) while eccentricity is celebrated too. It's proved an inspiring place to be for songwriting and getting back to nature.
