Tale of Two, a song writing duo comprised of Alfie Jackson (ex Holloways frontman turned songwriter/producer) and multi-talented writer and performer Gemma Rogers.
Mixing dark folk with lyrics from the shadows, the music ebbs and flows through very murky waters. They released their debut single ‘Angels’ in Dec 18 which found its way onto the Rough Trade Counter Culture playlist. The accompanying music video was given a feature on Clash Magazine and was viewed over 1k times in the first fortnight.
Alfie and Gemma met while playing on the same bill together and immediately knew they wanted to work together. Writing songs remotely (Alfie lives in Austria) they racked up more than 20,000 plays in just two weeks on their first collaboration for Gemma's solo project (single ‘Stop’ was released June 18).
With no conscious influences to speak of, as Alfie puts it, “ we just sat down and wrote some songs, mainly about stuff we were going through at the time.”
