Bio

24-year-old Brisbane based Angharad Drake (ang-harad) grew up on Australia's famed Sunshine Coast, where she began writing music during her early years of high school. Influenced by the stylings of Feist, Laura Marling and Bon Iver, she began to develop her own individual style during her university years and recorded a self titles debut EP in 2010. Since then she has completed two more self produced EP's (2013's Lay Down, and 2014's Swing), all in preparation for her debut full length album, Sword. Blending a mixture of folk storytelling, lullaby melodies and atmospheric harmonies, the album infuses subtle influences from Folk virtuoso's like Laura Marling, Jose Gonzalez and Joanna Newsom, whilst managing to maintain it's own distinctive sound.

Drake employed the trusted hands of the production team at Sountekmona, following a series of self-produced EP releases which experienced cult success and saw her work hard in the local folk scene. Now working alongside producer/engineer Samuel Joseph, and with her band (Alexander Mitchell on bass, Declan Kenrick on slide guitar and Alister Murray on drums), Drake has now begun working on her next album release with the lead single 'Baby' out now.
