Sephine Llo

Sephine Llo – aka musician Josephine Lloyd-Wilson – released her debut EP, ‘Flame’, in 2014. Its intriguing mix of folk, electronic music and studio experimentation rightly drew attention from people hunting out exciting new music and she was quickly marked as ‘one to watch’. But since then there has been little heard from her.

Sadly, while she was working on her debut album, her husband, Autumn Chorus’s Robert Lloyd-Wilson, was diagnosed with cancer, leading her to put work on the record on hold. In December last year, he passed away, shortly after learning that Josephine was pregnant.

As she grieved, she began work on her album, which is now due for release on 27 Oct. The first single, ‘First To Tarnish’, is a powerful but delicate piece of music, filled with love and loss. From the opening buzz of a guitar amp – which gives way not to riffs, as your brain is probably conditioned to expect, but to gently looping harp – the song is a finely balanced construction.
