Bio

Seren Spain writes songs and sings, plays violin and keys. Her lyrics showcase a penchant for whimsy and otherworldly narratives. You may know her from when she were a wee lass in the folk band Paper St Soap Company, or from her days busking around England's cobblestone streets. Seren returned to Melbourne with a bounty of songs in arm to create a record with award-winning producer Mitch Cairns, which is about to hatch from its nest!!

Only one track has been released so far - that's Feeling For You/"The Av" - inspired by the politics of bicycle gangs of 8 year olds on "The Av" (The Avenue) she grew up in Newbury, England.

Great song with super crisp vocals and light instrumental backing with a contemporary folk beat.
