Zoe and Rosie better know the 'Worry Dolls' studied music together at LIPA at a time when there was a really exciting folk scene happening in Liverpool (The Staves, Mikhael Paskalev, Dan Croll, Thomas J Speight, to name a few…) They met as solo artists, but by the time they had left Liverpool they had formed an alliance, and that was 'Worry Dolls'. They spent a year travelling back and forth and writing in different places, but finally took the plunge and moved to London in 2012 where they have been tirelessly gigging ever since.
Their music is characterised by sublime harmonies and tongue-in-cheek, honest lyrics and they have received praise from Paul McCartney to Joan Armatrading. In the last 3 years, they have forged something substantially stronger than a hair colour match - a beautiful and captivating result.
Zoe and Rosie are just about to release a very good new EP called 'Burden', which is well worth exploring
