Lotte Mullan to play Hare & Hounds Birmingham

March 17, 2015 in News

Dubbed as the female Bob Dylan, Lotte has built a dedicated following with her personal, story telling songs that chronicle everyday life with heartbreaking honesty. The British music press raved about Lotte’s self released debut album Plain Jane christening her Indie-Country sound ‘Anglicana’ and crowing her “Suffolk’s Joni Mitchell”.

Lotte will be playing intimate versions of songs from her latest album Love’s Bonfire, released on 9th March, and made out in Nashville with Band of Horses.

Fiercely DIY, Lotte turned down a major label deal with Warners and runs her own label Raindog Records. A blog she was writing about her misadventures in the music business was snapped up for a book and film deal by Elton John’s Rocket Pictures and Ridley Scott Productions used four of Lotte’s songs to soundtrack their latest short film ‘Kismet Diner’ which has had over 3 million hits on Youtube and won first prize at Manhattan Short film Festival.

Q Magazine raved about Lotte Mullan’s self released debut album, christening her indie-folk sound ‘anglicana’. The rest of the music press joined in with the praise and Lotte spent a year on the road touring solo before packing her bags and heading to Nashville to make an album with Band of Horses.

Lotte Mullan to play Birmingham Glee Club

January 9, 2013 in News

Lotte Mullan is touring her unique brand of storytelling contemporary folk with her second album, the follow up to this year’s stunning debut ‘Plain Jane’, including a stop at Birmingham’s own Glee Club!

This follows a whirlwind year which saw her signing a film deal with Elton John’s Rocket Pictures based on a blog she was writing about her adventures in the music business. Lotte has since turned down a major record deal in favour of going it alone with her own self-funded label Raindog Records. Her music has also been used on the latest LOVEFILM advert and she’s been live in session with BBC Radio 4′s Jenni Murray on Woman’s hour as well as touring with Scott Matthews, Newton Faulker and Albert Hammond.

Her second album comes from a yearning for the British countryside . Lotte grew up in rural Suffolk but moved to London in her teens to ‘live the dream’ and after eight years found herself torn between two different communities and ways of life; she found herself exploring a return to her roots whilst listening to the likes of Nick Drake and Bob Dylan. This is Lotte’s first solo tour and promises to be an intimate evening of stories and song with this engaging and talented young musician.
