'The artist oscillates between gently layered and sparse sounds, that often border on ethereal, with haunting and emotive vocals to a more punchy sound that blends the nu-folk stylings of Connor Oberst with hints of Joanna Newsom's harpistry plucked distantly on her signature ukulele.’
Little Strings on the Cover of Carlisle Living magazine February 2018.
Little Strings (Clare Louise Roberts)
is an international singer-songwriter and a competitor in the Ukulele Festival of Scotland's Rising Stars competition.
She writes indie-folk-pop songs, accompanied by conceptual art visuals when performing live across the UK. Originally from Wales, she has toured Belgium and France doing theatre and music, playing in Paris and Brussels before making Glasgow her home. She loves to tell stories through her music, often with some humour flowing through her relatable lyrics too.
Little Strings has an EP out; available online and on CD now.
Her self-titled EP was recorded and mixed by Ben Rogerson, a producer and member of Cumbrian band The Unsung and the artwork is by Cumbrian artist and musician James Ovens.
