The BeauBowBelles release debut album “A Thing of Reality”
London-based four-piece folk crossover act announce the release of their debut album “A Thing of Reality” recorded at Soup Studios (The Kills, The Maccabees, Roots Manuva) and produced by David Holmes. “A Thing of Reality” has been described as “a mouth-watering adventure of folk swing”. (Ring Master review) The BeauBowBelles are a band of foot stomping, harmony singing, song writing swing folkers. They dragged themselves from their classical roots through the earth of folk, the dusts of country and the fires of gypsy entwining and weaving them into a new blaze of sound.
