Beneath Oxfordshire's starry skies on the echoes of South Wales, Dolly Mavies serenades under a harvest moon, weaving tales of life's mysteries. Her melodies enchant the soul, and her lyrics deliver a visceral punch. 'The Calm and The Storm,' her eagerly awaited debut album, has garnered critical acclaim and secured support from BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music as one of Tom Robinson's favourites, and Absolute Radio as Artist of the month.


Channeling a timeless quality, her music is like an old friend - familiar and reassuring, yet brutally honest and unexpected. With authenticity and a natural energy, she effortlessly navigates from fiery rock passion to gentle folky lullabies, each note resonating with heartfelt sincerity.


Joined by her exceptional band, when they step onto the stage, it's not merely a performance; it's an experience. Her music moves the soul, blurring eras and genres with heart-wrenching lyrics and foot stomping, spirit-igniting anthems.
