Twenty one years after their debut self titled album and one and only UK tour, the tour de force that is Daphne's flight is set to return to the stage in 2017.
Daphne's Flight are all contemporary songwriters who cross a huge range of topics and genres, blending folk, blues, jazz and pop whilst also dipping into new and vibrant arrangements of classic covers such as the Beach Boy's 'God Only Knows' and Elvis Costello's 'Ship Building'. All are woven together with striking harmonies and supported by a range of instrumentation and percussion. An evening with DF will be filled with energy, humour and passion.
With a complete line-up of all five original members and a brand new studio album, this is the tour that fans have been waiting for since their first impromptu performance at Cambridge festival in 1995, when they took a packed club tent by storm and decided the time was right to join forces. Drawing on their collective wealth of talent and varied styles, each of them accomplished songwriters, musicians and renowned singers, it was the combination of all five voices, a powerhouse of harmonies, that left audiences breathless and brought them much critical acclaim.
With as much energy and enthusiasm as they ever had, Daphne's are truly excited to be reuniting again and hope you will join them in the next leg of the flight for what promises to be a memorable year. Chocks away!
The new album, as yet untitled, is scheduled for release in the spring of 2017 and will be on the Fledg'ling Record label.
