Sonya & James & Gus
THE GREENERS are a London/Bristol based alt-folk trio who don’t like to stay in one box for too long. With roots in folk/pop/bluegrass & classical, we use multiple acoustic instruments and intricate vocal harmonies to create our
sound. We have been compared to Tom Waits, Fleet Foxes and Nickel Creek and draw influence from seminal artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Laura Marling, Elbow and The The.
The first single from our new album, ‘Take Me Home’, was selected for Fresh Faves Batch 447 and played on Gary Crowley’s BBC Radio London show, and ‘Take Me Home’ and ‘Don’t Leave Me Behind’ were featured on BBC Music Introducing in the West.
In 2017 our self-titled first album, ‘The Greeners’ received immediate praise and recognition from Radio 6 Music, Fresh on the Net and BBC Introducing. Two singles, ‘Old Street’ and ‘Crowd’ were released in 2020 to acclaim from Folk Radio and Trust the Doc, as well as our lockdown EP ‘AWAY’.
