The Frisbys


"...heartwarming and sweetly soulful..." - Gigwise

"...glorious harmonies and sweet, emotive sound..." - For Folk's Sake

Twins Helen (vocals, flute) and Nicola Frisby (vocals, acoustic guitar) have been singing and playing music together since they were old enough to speak. Having performed as a duo for many years honing their incredible vocal harmonies, it took a boredom call from a broken-legged Marc Robinson (piano, guitar) to convince them to start a full band. The three were joined by Sam Keer (acoustic/electric/slide guitar), and later, Will Cattermole (bass) and Tom Finigan (drums). They have been producing haunting and emotive music ever since.

The Frisbys have already released a double A-side single - Born and Raised/Give in to the Dark - from the EP, which gives a glimpse of what is to come from this band on the rise. They describe Born and Raised as “light hearted and upbeat...almost a countrified version of No Scrubs by TLC” and Give in to the Dark as a hopeful song about supporting a loved one through dark times. The other tracks on the EP carry a similar theme and are filled with utterly stunning harmonies and musicianship throughout. If you’re looking for something to warm you up this Winter then this EP will definitely do the trick.

Having received past support from Ruth Barnes, Gary Crowley and Kathryn Tickell on Amazing Radio, Mark Forrest on BBC Radio, Team Rock Radio, Gigwise, Folk Radio and For Folk’s Sake, the band already boast an impressive collection of fans. This is already being built upon, with Born and Raised having recently been featured as Track of The Day on Sarah Gorrell’s Drive Time Show on BBC Sussex.
