PLUMHALL (Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall) are critically-acclaimed songwriters from the UK, using a mesmerising combination of acoustic and electric instruments (occasionally with electronica) to create breathtaking soundscapes to their powerful original songs. They are renowned for their exquisite vocal harmonies and excellent musicianship.

Their two studio albums, ‘Thundercloud’ and ‘The Ghost of Noise’, earned the duo many plaudits including a “Hidden Gem” award from The Guardian/Observer. From the alt-country sound of the debut to the electronica and found sounds of the follow up, the band have proved that they can fuse classic songwriting with genre-hopping studio experimentation. Their third album is currently in production and promises to be their strongest yet.

PLUMHALL’s live prowess has seen the duo invited to sing onstage with Al Stewart on several occasions, including unforgettable appearances at London’s Palladium and Cadogan Hall. They have also performed alongside other such luminaries as Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan guitarist/Levon Helm producer/instrumentalist), Phil Beer (Show of Hands) and many more. Michelle Plum was formerly a member of Chumbawamba, replacing Lou Watts for 4 years, and was a touring session musician with The Chris Norman Band for 4 years. Nick Hall has been a touring member of Ian Prowse & Amsterdam, Magna Carta, and The Hall Brothers.

In 2018 Nick and Michelle caught the attention of film-maker Richard Heap, who asked them to write an original song for, arrange live acoustic music for, and appear in the 2020 international feature film The Runaways.

The duo’s livestream shows built a global online community during lockdowns, inspiring a stunning video for their song “A Darkness That Won’t Leave The House,” which was recognized by Janice Long on BBC radio.

The future looks exciting for PLUMHALL, as they have just been selected by the legendary FAIRPORT CONVENTION to open for them on their winter tour Feb/Mar 2024. With a third album imminent, they continue to evolve and captivate audiences everywhere.

PLUMHALL are constantly evolving and now also perform as a three-piece with their producer David P Crickmore (of Fiat Lux) on bass, vocals and electronica. The trio has the power of a rock band and can fully recreate the sound of the ‘Ghost Of Noise’ album live.
