The Prince Albert, Brighton
A co-pro with Folklore Sessions.
In celebration of her debut album ‘Where Shall We Begin’, out 11 April, Chloe Foy is heading on the road with a stop at Brighton’s Prince Albert.
Foy first started to attract attention as far back as 2013 when her debut single ‘In The Middle of the Night’ was picked up by BBC Radio 6 and Radio 2. Follow-up singles, ‘Flaws’ and ‘Asylum’, brought huge streaming success - the latter is approaching 8.5 million Spotify plays - and festival appearances followed soon after - SXSW in 2018, Greenman and Cambridge Folk Festival in 2019.
‘Where Shall We Begin’ is inspired by songwriters like Gillian Welch, Edith Piaf and Tyler Ramsay, and producers like Blake Mills and John Congleton, with the resulting album revolving around Foy’s spine-tingling, pure vocals and her near perfect songwriting. Expect the melodies to lodge in your head for days.
It all adds to make up for a soothing and incredibly vulnerable listen. An album that could both rock a baby to sleep, and, at the opposite end of the spectrum, inspire deep self-excavation and existential analysis. The kind of album that doesn’t come around very often.
