Originating from West London but now residing on the south coast, Freya Beer deftly mixes poetical lyrics with a distinctive sound, often drawing influence from the likes of Patti Smith, Bat for Lashes and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
Freya Beer self-released her debut single “Bike Boy” in 2018. The single gained a positive reception from the likes of BBC Introducing and an array of music blogs. “Bike Boy” was quickly followed by the release of “Six Months” which also received a very positive reception. The release of the second single led to a BBC Introducing Live Lounge Session and feature on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 show. In 2019 Freya launched her own label Sisterhood Records and released “Dear Sweet Rosie”. The single was recorded in Manchester and accompanying Freya is ‘I Am Kloot’ Andy Hargreaves on drums.
