Gwyneth Herbert is a strikingly original performer, award-winning composer and lyricist and versatile musical adventurer who continues to redefine and challenge expectations. Drawing on influences from the worlds of jazz, folk, contemporary classical music and storytelling, she has released six critically albums to date on major, independent and self-owned labels, and toured across the world with her band.

Gwyneth’s last album, 2012’s The Sea Cabinet, was accompanied by a large-scale multi-art form tour involving prose, live water sculpture projections and pirate flashmob choruses recruited from local communities. Long-recognised for her rare vocal talents and extraordinary ability to connect emotionally with her audience, the project further enhanced Gwyneth’s reputation as one the most imaginative and idiosyncratic artists of her generation.

Since then, in addition to widespread touring nationally and internationally, she has performed her own work with the London Sinfonietta and also received enormous acclaim for her work as composer and lyricist, ranging from the Bristol Old Vic’s hugely successful production of The Snow Queen - for which she was also musical director and voice of the title role - to a song for EastEnders character Bex!

2018 sees the launch of her ambitious and hugely anticipated seventh album and live show, Letters I Haven’t Written, songs from which she recently performed in session for BBC Radio 2 and live from the Edinburgh Festival on Radio 3. She will be showcasing these, alongside songs from past albums, in this intimate performance at PizzaExpress Soho.
