“Think Joni Mitchell meets Lisa Hannigan, with a delectably eccentric Scottish twist”

The Guardian

“Beautifully honest…sweetly poetic in its lyricism yet deadly accurate in arrangement”

Clash

The celebrated Scottish folk singer Rachel Sermanni has announced that she is visiting Lyme Regis as part of a major new tour. Sermanni is influenced by musicians such as Eva Cassidy, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan and also often talks about vivid dreams that slowly transform into songs. She developed and understood performing when she began listening and performing Scotland’s traditional music at school. 

In September 2009 she went to see Mumford and Sons at the Loopallu festival in Ullapool. After the performance, she found them in a pub “and asked them if they wanted to jam”, resulting in a jamming session on the beach. In 2011 she supported them at Dingwalls in London. Sermanni also toured with Fink on his European tour in 2011, was showcased at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, has supported Elvis Costello and Rumer, and performed at 150 gigs between June 2011 and June 2012.

Rachel Sermanni has announced a new EP, ‘Swallow Me’, that charts her journey to motherhood. She has also shared the title track.

Written predominantly while pregnant on tour in the US, the lead single actually sees us begin at the journey’s end. Borne into the world two weeks ahead of the birth, the Scottish songwriter celebrates the innate spirituality that inspired her to surrender to the tides, sifting through any mud that came her way to achieve a clarity as crystalline and clear as the sea’s shimmering blue.
