They're back!!
Much-loved Yorkshire folk duo Belinda O'Hooley and Heidi Tidow have been propelled into newfound fame for penning the theme tune for Sally Wainwright's hit BBC1/HBO drama 'Gentleman Jack', earning them global admiration, appearances on TV, Radio 4 Woman's Hour, and performing concerts that sell out months in advance.
Belinda and Heidi's boundless songwriting has been described by The Guardian as 'exceptional' and The Independent as 'defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in.'
Their first full studio album in seven years, 'Cloudheads', delves into the mindscapes, passions and inner worlds of two highly individual, autistic women - Belinda and Heidi.
Moving, melodic, dramatic and tender, from stories of parenthood, the call of a song thrush, to a portrait of the last days of a touching relationship between their neighbour, Matthew, and his beloved Alsatian, Ted - and even a collaboration with Gentleman Jack herself, Suranne Jones, on 'The Ballad of Anne and Ann', they explore, consider and connect subjects and stories in a distinctive, inventive and memorable way.
Having the originality and skill to invite comparison with the most celebrated harmony duos, 6 Music's Tom Robinson says, "They sing together in the way families do. Normally, you only get that closeness in the voices with family bands like The Coppers or The Watersons".,
