A couple of weeks back I interviewed the lovely Ethemia at their Cafe Rene gig for BBC Introducing West. On Saturday the feature was aired across Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire and Somerset and was a joy to listen to on such a great platform. The band are so welcoming and full of talent so be sure to check them out in the near future. Check out their upcoming gigs and tracks here.
Brought together by the eagerness to learn, Ethemia’s relationship blossomed through guitar lessons together some five years ago which eventually resulted in the forming of Ethemia. Married not to each other but to music Michaela and Berny are a couple that sing the stories of heartache and past experiences through what they call contemporary acoustic. Lyrics that will pull on every heartstring of those that listen, the Cirencester duo puts the listener in a memorised place with their live performances. Speaking at their Gloucester gig at Cafe Rene, Ethemia talk about their staggering year and a half together as a band that catalogues an album release, over 100 gigs and talk of cracking America, whilst giving musicians just starting out a much needed boost with some positive advice. Their EP Quirk of Fate is available now to download and is certainly a treat for the ears and the heart.
If you missed the show on Saturday listen to it again here
