O'Hooley and Tidow Biography

O ' HOOLEY & TIDOW

THE HUM

***** ‘ Boundless songwriting and exquisite harmonies that truly shine ' Guardian

I LOVE the new album. ' Lauren Laverne, 6 Music

Excellent ' **** Songlines Top of the World Album

Remarkable. Surely one of the albums of the year. ' **** Guardian

' Remarkable…challenging, innovative and often moving ' **** Irish Times

‘Defiant, robust, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in.' Independent

Boldly defiant and sharply individual. One of British Folk's mightiest combinations ' **** MOJO Folk Album of the Month

One of the most exciting acts on the contemporary folk scene today; Belinda O ' Hooley and Heidi Tidow are accomplished interpreters of everything from

Massive Attack to traditional Irish ballads, but it's their own boundless songwriting and exquisite harmonies that truly shine. Their new album The Hum , produced by Mercury nominated Gerry Diver has been hailed as one of the albums of the year, with a Guardian feature, extensive airplay, and live sessions on Radio 2 , Radio 4 ' s Woman ' s Hour and 6 Music. After listening to The Hum , the duo

received a personal invite from Billy Bragg to perform on his Leftfield Stage at Glastonbury .

They have the originality and skill to invite comparison with the folk scene's most celebrated North American harmony duos, from early Simon and Garfunkel to the iconic Kate and Anna McGarrigle . Lyrically and musically, Belinda and Heidi's powerful, deeply moving, and at times spine-tingling performances are infused with an honesty and empathy that will disarm even the hardest of heart.
