Angharad Drake - The Bison Bar
23 year old Brisbanebased Angharad Drake grew up on Australia’s famed Sunshine Coast, where she began writing music during her early years of high school, and scoring gigs at small local venues. She later went on to study a Music degree at Brisbane's QUT.
Influenced by the stylings of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Laura Marling and Bon Iver, she began to develop her own individual style during her University years and recorded a self titled debut EP in 2010. Since then she has completed two more selfproduced EP's (2013’s 'Lay Down', and 2014’s 'Swing’), all in preparation for her debut fulllength album, 'Sword'.
Blending a mixture of Folk storytelling, lullaby melodies and atmospheric harmonies the album infuses subtle influences from Folk virtuoso’s like Laura Marling, Jose Gonzalez and Joanna Newsom, whilst managing to maintain its own distinctive sound.
Brisbanebased Drake employed the trusted hands of the production team at soundtekoma, following a series of selfproduced EP releases which experienced cult success and saw her work hard on the local live scene, culminating in an upcoming tour in late November with her 4piece band. 2016 marks the beginning of a special journey for Angharad Drake.
