::: CLIMBING TREES :::
Formed in the Summer of 2011, South Wales four-piece CLIMBING TREES released critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Hebron’ in 2013, gaining ‘BBC Introducing Band of the Week’, ‘Artist of the Week’ and ‘Single of the Week’ recognition along with playlisting across BBC Radio Wales in the run-up to its release. Shortly after, the Trees were hand-picked by jazz supremo Jamie Cullum as support for the Cardiff leg of his ‘Momentum’ tour at a sold-out St Davids Hall, and ended the year with appearances alongside fellow Welsh contemporaries Paper Aeroplanes and Al Lewis.
2014 saw appearances at the likes of Green Man Festival, Festival No.6 and The Hay Festival during a twenty-date Summer Festival Tour which also included a triumphant performance at Laugharne Castle as part of the Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations. Rounding off the year with a live session at London’s legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios followed by an appearance with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for BBC One’s ‘The Really Welsh Christmas Show’, the band are currently working on the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to ‘Hebron’, earmarked for an Autumn release, with 2015 set to be another big year for Climbing Trees.
::: JODIE MARIE :::
Raised in Narberth, Pembrokeshire, 23 year-old singer-songwriter JODIE MARIE could quite easily be the third point in a triangle formed by Joan Baez and Carole King. Signing a management deal with Transgressive at the age of 16, Jodie released her debut album ‘Mountain Echo’ on Decca in 2012 after working with the likes of Bernard Butler, Ed Harcourt and Jimmy Hogarth.
A spot on the BBC Radio 2 A-List followed, along with support slots for the likes of Nerina Pallot and Will Young. A collaboration with Samuel Taylor (under the moniker Taylor and Marie), saw the release of sixties folk-inspired EP ‘Tilt The Moon’ in 2014, and Jodie is currently putting the finishing touches to a second solo album, due for release this summer.
