Hailed as ‘a raw and thrilling new talent’, Freya Beer is a singer-songwriter based in West London. Inspired by art and literature, alternative fashion and music. Freya distils her disparate influences through a gothic soul and devil-may-care spirit that dares to dream in the darkness.

Renowned music critic John Robb hailed her as ‘New Artist of the Day’ on his Louder Than War site and predicted a Mercury Prize in years to come.
