Worry Dolls met at Paul McCartney’s school of music in Liverpool. Bonding initially due to having the same fiery red locks, what sets them apart is their tongue-in-cheek, honest lyrics and their refusal to sing “cliché love songs”.Described by Bob Harris as "a warm and infectious sound”, Worry Dolls’ music is packed full of sublime harmonies, atop a plethora of varied instruments. Many will have seen them performing at Glastonbury Festival, supporting Joan Armatrading on tour, or heard their music played on Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music. With a strong online following, Worry Dolls have clocked up over 100,000 views on YouTube, and over 85,000 spins on SoundCloud.

With two EPs already under their belt, Worry Dolls have just returned from Nashville where they have been writing with top writers and recording their debut album with producer Neilson Hubbard, to be released in 2016. Since their first EP, Worry Dolls’ sound has grown as their influences have shifted more towards the rootsier sounds of Nashville & the Appalachian mountains – still with a strong UK stamp. In their time together as a duo, they’ve forged something substantially stronger than a hair colour match. A beautiful and captivating result.

“Worry Dolls are phenomenally talented. The Nashville Songwriters Association believes in the group, their songs and their performance ability. Do yourself a favor and put them on your playlist!” - Bart Herbison (Executive Director - NSAI) 

“The brilliantly quirky duo Worry Dolls – a super-shiny beacon of joy in a dreamland far, far away from the persistently ‘regular’ sound of folk that’s flooding the charts right now” - The Huffington Post

“All four songs are absolute gems… stuffed full to bursting with fantastic harmonies” - Maverick Magazine

“Great harmonies and stirring folk-pop songs” - R2 Magazine
