Nueva came together during the first lockdown as a way to move through the difficult times. What grew was an enchanting musical bond, and a shared desire to make beautiful sounds and sing songs with meaning.
With a love of traditional music, but not always for traditional messages, Nueva seek to stay true to the spirit of folk music whilst weaving the words into songs that move with the times.
Featuring vocal harmony obsessed Fiona Fey and Rey Yusuf (formerly Tell Tale Tusk) on guitars and vocals, Monica Viñoly on vocals and violin, and Josh Considine on Cello
Amy Hollinrake is a London-based contemporary folk singer-songwriter. Inspired by feminist thought and folklore, her music weaves new ideas with old to present original and traditional material to modern audiences. Winner of the Bert Jansch Award 2018, Amy has been described as ‘a mixture of Allysen Callery and Joan Baez, rich yet languid… a mixture of traditional and modern folk sensibilities’ (Simon Lewis, Terrascope Magazine).
Through genre-traversing layering of folk instrumentation, jazz harmonies, and experimental approaches, infused with vivid narratives and dreamy vocals, her music combines songwriting and storytelling that has expressive focus and emotional depth.
