Described as “a super-shiny beacon of joy in a dreamland far, far away from the persistently ‘regular’ sound of folk” by The Huffington Post, Worry Dolls are a duo born out of the joint talents of multi-instrumentalists Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones.
Serendipity brought Zoe and Rosie together at an open mic whilst studying music in Liverpool; they found a unique chemistry and symbiotic harmony with their voices and set off together to make music. It was a new sound, blending the tender urgency of Zoe’s Irish-influenced style with the fiery integrity of Rosie’s vocals and rhythmic guitar.
After a summer of grafting on the festival circuit, they made the decision to quit their day jobs and fly to Nashville to record their debut album. In the 6 months following their album release, highlights include a raved-about main stage performance at Cambridge Folk Festival, showcases at The Great Escape and AmericanaFest UK, to name but a few; praise from MOJO, BBC’s Whispering Bob Harris & Paul Sexton, and a limited edition white vinyl released on Record Store Day. Worry Dolls are definitely on the rise and we can’t stop listening to their energy-filled songs.
