Odette Michell

Odette Michell is an award-winning British singer-songwriter, guitarist and bouzouki player with a stunning take on the folk tradition. In 2019, Odette released her debut album ‘The Wildest Rose’ to positive acclaim followed by an extensive tour and a string of live interviews. The album featured notable musical contributions from Phil Beer (one-half of multi-award-winning acoustic folk band Show of Hands), and Toby Shaer (Cara Dillon, Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys), and was named by fRoots Magazine as "one of the stand-out debuts of 2019". In 2020, Odette won Female Artist Of The Year at the 2019 FATEA Awards, following in the footsteps of previous winners Kitty Macfarlane and Cara Dillon respectively, and was touted as one of R2 Magazines 'Top Picks For 2020. Odette was also nominated for a Rising Star Award at the 2020 Folking Awards that same year and in January 2021 was invited to perform at Celtic Connections as part of the legendary Danny Kyle Open Stage. A dynamic and prolific live performer, Odette has performed alongside the likes of Show of Hands and Seth Lakeman, and has opened for folk legends Martin Carthy, Phil Beer, Boo Hewerdine, Nancy Kerr, Reg Meuross and BBC R2 Folk Award winner Sam Carter amongst others. Odette’s highly anticipated second studio album is due for release in 2023. Odette is delighted to be accompanied by Young Folk Award Finalist Charlie Wild on the fiddle and harmonium for her festival dates. ★★★★ "A dulcet and very vintage debut" R2 MAGAZINE "An absolute masterclass in how to deliver a traditional song” NORTHERN SKY "One of the brightest new names to have emerged full-grown on the country’s folk scene in recent years" FOLK RADIO UK
