The Epstein are an integral part of the ever burgeoning Oxford roots/Americana scene, alongside numerous luminaries such as The Dreaming Spires, The August List, Ags Connolly and The Great Western Tears to name but a few!
Regular touring around Britain and Europe in the last few years has honed their sound as well as the band’s live shows and has made them festival favourites at home and abroad with appearances at Glastonbury, Truck, Cornbury and Wychwood.
They’ll be playing tracks from the new album Burn the Branches (produced by George Shilling – Frank Turner, Stornoway) as well as their extensive back catalogue.
Since her first solo release in 2006, Daisy has proven herself as a talented and shrewd songwriter in demand. Three albums have been recorded by renowned producer Ali Chant at Toybox Studios (PJ Harvey, Gruff Rhys, Giant Sand, Seasick Steve) including her most recent release, “Good Luck Songs” (2017).
Daisy’s powerful vocals have been used by the likes of John Parish, for his film work, as well as a handful of TV session work. Her piano style and versatility was noticed by UK prog rockers Crippled Black Phoenix (Mascot Records), and since 2009 on and off Daisy has travelled as pianist/BV with the band on tours covering every corner of Europe as well as a short trip to China. Daisy was also chosen as vocalist on their cover of ACDC’s “Let Me Put My Love Into You” which was used in Classic Rock Magazine’s cover CD – a stark departure from her wistful singing style, proving her adaptability in musical genres.
Daisy has supported well known artists such as Howe Gelb, Karima Francis and Jenn Bostic as well as booked her own tours in the US and Poland, not to mention label tours across Germany, twice a year since 2008. Three studio albums followed suit, one of which (The Green Eyed, 2009) won an Independent Music Award which then secured her slots at Britain’s leading festivals Glastonbury, Wychwood and 2000 Trees.
