Cordelia Fellowes has been singing and song-writing since the tender age of 16, when she left home and felt confident to belt out her voice…so long as no one was listening. Ten years on, however, being heard is all she craves and as her fast-growing audience will testify, people enjoy listening.
Writing alongside Justin Gourlay and her partner, James Wolfe, Cordelia frequently creates and performs new material, ranging from softly sung, guitar-based lullabies to sultry, spiky pop. Her backing band ranges from a single accompanying guitar to a six-piece band. With an intimate, yet demanding stage presence and a fiercely uncompromising delivery, Cordelia has been compared to the likes of Jim Morrison, Madeline Peyroux and Lily Allen.
Recently, Cordelia has won the third round in the Pop and Female Artist categories for the peoplesmusicawards.com with her song ‘Matador’. And in Brighton her music has garnered regular airplay on Radio Reverb and Juice FM.
Gypsy Squat Pop Project originally formed in 2006, playing an assortment of original material from members Briony Dace, Bungle, Cordelia and James Wolfe. Together they entertained and amused Brighton audiences until early last year when they split for a short period. Now reformed and based in London, the band has added to the line up with a sax player (Los Albertos' Chez Harper-Grimble), a trumpet player (Los Albertos' Dez) and a drummer (The Caribbeans' Lee Ashcroft). Wolfe remains on the guitar and vocals, Bungle on the double bass and Cordelia taking lead vocals, while Briony pops up from time to time when she can. Their songs are infectious, witty and delivered with such energy and charisma, they are not to be missed...
