Setting a great soundtrack for this summer, Larmer Tree Festival is ecstatic to announce kooky British singer-songwriter and actress, Paloma Faith will 'Put a Spell' on Thursday night with her extraordinary, theatrical flair. Headlining the Main Stage, the Stone Cold Sober siren looks set to brighten what will already be a carnival atmosphere.
Making her international breakthrough in 2009, this former burlesque dancer, musician's assistant and Best British Female Brit Award nominee, will soon be seen helping Danny O'Donoghue mentor his acts on BBC 1's The Voice UK. At Larmer Tree she will be belting out hits from her critically acclaimed debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, as well as treating festival-goers to material from her eagerly awaited second album Fall To Grace. Out this May, it's being billed as the soundtrack to her life, with a union of Paloma's first two loves: film and music. Backed by spectacular strings and gospel singers, the first track from this album, Picking Up The Pieces is released next month.
Renowned for her unique fashion, which often verges on the extreme, the Larmer Tree Festival audience will have to wait until July to see Paloma's extravagant attire and show stopping performance, perhaps she'll even sport a huge feature plume!
