Two Great Voices: Tanya & Lee

Tanya Auclair website

Tanya Auclair was first recommended to Fresh On The Net by the wonderful Ruth Barnes and from the moment of first hearing the opening bars of this song I knew we were in the presence of a major new talent. Tanya came in to record a session for us at BBC 6 Music where her combination of musical daring, emotional conviction and mastery of loopstation technology left me speechless. Great as this studio recording is, it’s live that she truly shines.

Lee Griffiths website

I first heard Lee Griffiths sing ten years ago at the re-opening of London’s Mean Fiddler in the basement of the ill-fated Astoria theatre. Echoing up the stairs to my fressing room from the venue below came a voice of such soulful purity I thought somebody must be playing a Marvin Gaye record. The combination of Lee’s stormy personal life, eloquent way with words and sheer innate musical ability mean that on his night Lee is an incomparable performer.
