Heg & The Wolf Chorus’ Dark Journey On Tour With Moulettes and Arthur Brown Single ‘Giant’ Release In Advance Of UK Tour






Heg & The Wolf Chorus’ Dark Journey On Tour With Moulettes and Arthur Brown

Single ‘Giant’ Release In Advance Of UK Tour

Heg & The Wolf Chorus draw from the depths of tradition to tell dark stories with their other-worldly breed of
folk music on new release ‘Giant’ - a follow up to 2013’s acclaimed ‘Boat and I’. Blending folk, dramatic pop,
dynamic violin, ghostly drums, flamboyant piano and rich vocal harmonies with lavish arrangements, the band
seek to create drama and atmosphere in their theatrical sound. Fairy tales provide inspiration for songwriter
Heg, who also takes from the twisted roots of her own family tree to lead a journey through Grimm’s
fantastical forests and across the stormy Atlantic, to the dangerous coalmines of Illinois – and even further
beyond.

Hailing from Bristol, via Darlington College of Arts and a hippy-commune existence, the band have previously
supported BBC Sound of 2013 winners HAIM, performed live at Bristol’s Colston Hall for a BBC documentary
on home recording, and were selected for Glastonbury Festival's Emerging Talent long-list by Helen True from
For Folks Sake. The BBC are firm supporters of this exciting group, with regular interviews and airplay via BBC
Introducing.

The new release will see them continue on this ever expanding journey, with support spots booked with epic
contemporaries Moulettes and the legendary The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown included in their upcoming
show schedule, as well as a showcase performance at Brighton’s renowned The Great Escape Festival. Heg had
this to say:

“It’s so inspiring to be playing with Moulettes – given their following in the folk world and the influence they
have had on us. The Jazz Cafe show with Arthur Brown is so exciting too – the man is a legend! Along with the
release, I almost can’t fathom the whirlwind we are in right now”
