Carol Hodge Bio

Yorkshire-dwelling singer-songwriter Carol Hodge is a wonderful musical dichotomy. With her roots and

ethics firmly set in punk as a long-term collaborator with Crass frontman Steve Ignorant, Carol is currently

touring the songs of Crass around the world with The Ignorant Band, on keyboards, BVs and lead vocals.

Yet as a solo artist, Carol is also a uniquely gifted songwriter and as able to conjure up lyrically honest,

pop-infused, heart-wrenching melodies as she is screaming into the face of authority and injustice.

Described by Classic Rock as “A real talent in the realm of smart, on-the-money melodies and bittersweet

storytelling through song”, Carol describes herself as a ‘seven-fingered pianist’. She was born with a rare

condition called cleft type symbrachydactyly, which means Carol has just two fingers on her left hand.

This hasn't held her back as her impressive CV is testament to. Carol also performs as a

keyboardist/backing vocalist with various established artists, including The Wildhearts. She has released

four solo studio albums since 2018, to critical acclaim, and tours relentlessly across the UK and Europe.

She was recently awarded Track of the Week by Classic Rock magazine readers, and has recently

supported Spear Of Destiny, TV Smith, Space and Ginger Wildheart.

Julia Othmer Bio

Julia Othmer’s voice is vibrant and emotionally potent. Her piano-driven performances are mesmerizing

fusions of raw power, vocal artistry and joy. Passionate and engaging, Othmer creates intimate warmth

with her audiences. The child of refugees, Othmer draws from a richly cultured palette of experience to

inspire her intensely human yet otherworldly songs. Using music to connect to people and social issues

inspires her. Othmer is one of seven artists selected to represent the USA for Global Music Match and an

Official Showcasing Artist at Folk Alliance International.

Her award-winning music has been featured on NPR and the BBC, in film, TV, and video games.

Songwriting awards include the Billboard World Song Contest Finalist and the International Songwriting

Competition Semi-Finalist. She tours internationally and has shared the stage with a range of artists

including Emmylou Harris, Sarah McLachlan, Heart and Regina Spektor.
