Anglo-Irish alt-folk duo The Portraits, aka husband and wife songwriters Lorraine and Jeremy Millington from Galway and Bristol respectively, reached the iTunes chart in January 2015 with their charity single The Rest Of Time, championed by BBC Radio 2 and featuring the voices of 2000 people recorded across the UK during 2014 all singing to save lives lost to blood cancers.

2016 saw The Portraits play at Glastonbury Festival, and complete work on their seventh studio album Global Heartbeat, released 21st April 2017 with a major album launch at The Drawingroom in Chesham, Bucks the following day. The album is a call to the world to unite against hatred and heal its divisions. The first single, Nobody Can Ever Murder Love, was the duo's instant reaction to the horror of Jo Cox's murder in June 2016 and was played on Good Morning Sunday on BBC Radio 2 in November 2016. Clare Balding loved the song so much she invited The Portraits to play and chat about the song live on 23rd April 2017.

On Thursday 15 March 2018, The Portraits will perform a charity concert in aid of Friends of Kipkelion - a UK registered charity supporting basic healthcare and educational projects in the Kipkelion District of Kenya.

Support comes from Hannah White.
