Well Hung Heart

Well Hung Heart is the brand new project from Greta Valenti (Fuji Minx) and Robin Davey (The Bastard Fairies, The Hoax). Greta Valenti’s pint size frame certainly belies the strength and power of her vocal delivery. Mixing simmering whispers with belting choruses, her veracious vocals and stinging lyrics are refreshingly diverse.
Her partner in crime is an Englishman named Robin Davey. He is a multi-instrumentalist, old school guitar slinger, and the youngest inductee into the British Blues Hall of Fame.

Carmen Linares

Carmen Pacheco Rodríguez, born in Linares (Jaén) in 1951, is without doubt a fundamental pillar of all current flamenco singing, she masters a vast repertoire of flamenco styles due to her long experience. Her enormous versatility has allowed her to take part in zarzuelas (a Spanish form of musical drama), plays and several projects involving classical musicians and musicans from the world of jazz. Out of her works, the recording of an anthology of female flamenco singing is the one which stands out.

Ruth Lorenzo

Ruth was born in the South East of Spain and when she screamed loudly during the birth, the doctors said she would be a singer. At the age of one, Ruth loved the film Annie and would sing along in English, even though she had no idea what the words meant. Her mother nurtured Ruth's love of music by playing music and dancing with her. Ruth was six when she first heard Monserat Caballet, an opera singer in Spain and she started to sing opera when her mother bought her Monserat's album. Ruth imitated her vocals until she was pitch perfect to the iconic Spanish opera singer.
