Neev – Originally from Glasgow, singer-songwriter Neev writes beautiful songs that stay with you.

Her EP ‘Currants’ was released on Trapped Animal in 2021. Tracks from Currants have been played on BBC 6 Music, BBC Intro Scotland and most recently BBC Radio 1 on Sian Eleri’s Chillest Show and Power Down Playlist. Neev performed tracks from Currants live and televised for the BBC Introducing x Celtic Connections Showcase at Saint Luke’s in Glasgow in January 2022.
Neev has spent 2022 embarking on her biggest projects yet, the first release from this project, ‘Seawall’, was released in September and recieved support from the likes of Earmilk, Backseat Mafia, Sian Eleri & Roddy Hart.

Before Breakfast – explore feminist issues through the telling of personal stories – fusing their classical knowledge and rich arrangements with raw expression. Gina and Lucy’s music has always been beautiful, though is often layered with feminine discomfort. An uneasy web of harmonies and relentless piano, intricate cello and expressively haunting vocals run through their back catalogue and feature on their debut album I Could Be Asleep If It Weren’t For You – Released January 28th 2022.
The four-piece have toured with gold certified Sony artist Tokio Myers and Mercury Prize nominated Bella Union artist C. Duncan, performing at venues such as Shepherds Bush Empire, Manchester Albert Hall, The Sage, Scala, Band On the Wall, Thekla and The Rescue Rooms.
