Worry Dolls are an exciting duo born out of the joint talents of multi-instrumentalists Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones, whose debut album Go Get Gone was released earlier this year. They met in Liverpool when they were 18, both on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters. Their great chemistry and love of harmony led to them starting a contemporary bluegrass band. Paired by their teachers for an opportunity to have their songwriting critiqued by Paul McCartney, they were inspired to start co-writing, and could now be described as an almost telepathically linked songwriting force.
In the 6 months following their album release, highlights include a raved-about main stage
performance at Cambridge Folk Festival, showcases at The Great Escape and AmericanaFest UK, Festival La Truite Magique in Belgium, BBC Introducing, plays on BBC Radio 2,praise from MOJO, BBC's Whispering Bob Harris & Paul Sexton. With 88 shows this year - all a testament to their talent and achievements in such a short time in 2017.
It is a new sound, blending the tender urgency of Zoe's Irish-influenced voice with the fiery integrity of Rosie's vocals and rhythmic guitar. They will be leading their 5-piece band.
