Gris-de-Lin is a singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist from Dorset. Her music is a heady mix of post-rock, blues and alt-folk peppered with warped electronics. Her debut album Sprung was released by BB*Island on 6th April 2018. The album 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 (Torres/Kite Base) she also drafted in Rob Ellis (PJHarvey/Anna Calvi) to play drums on several tracks.
Live she alternates between instruments and recent tours have seen her play shows in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Australia and New Zealand and perform a live session for BBC Introducing. Gris-de-Lin has also been working with other artists including The Duke Spirit, Tunng, Gemma Ray and Joe Gideon & Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds).
“Gris-de-Lin blends alt-rock, folk, world rhythms, skronky jazz and glitchy esoterica into a beguiling whole on her debut album, balancing strong melody with consistently inventive sonic texture. 8/10” Graeme Thomson, Uncut Magazine
“Sprung is a fine introduction to Gris-de-Lin’s sound… both very original and very exciting: the album from which it is lifted might just be one of the most intriguing releases of the year.” For The Rabbits
“Sprung is a patchwork of emotional rebel femininity and a cauldron of sonic and lyrical exposure.” Tim Merricks, Americana UK
