ABBIE OZARD + Support at Bobiks, Newcastle… Friday, 9th December 2022
Originating from a small town in Cheshire, Abbie grew up falling in love with music through listening to her parent’s CDs in their car. After years of singing in a choir, Abbie decided it was time to start writing her own music. Quickly building acclaim with her penchant for the wistful coming of age tales, Abbie Ozard nails the ennui, anxieties and liberation of early 20s social navigation.
Since signing with London based independent label House Anxiety, Abbie has spent the summer of 2021 writing and recording in London with Will Bloomfield. During this period, she has developed a more mature sound – evolving beyond the confines of her bedroom-pop origins, without losing any of her infectious spark.
The first taste of this new era was revealed in late 2021, the introspective ‘Grown’ turning more heads again. Her intimate yet intoxicating mix of new sounds, pulls you in ever closer to take in every last word. The FADER (2021) Falling for Ozard’s effortless passionate lilt, Jack Saunders and Huw Stephens have consistently backed her new era across BBC Radio 1, with Abbie McCarthy and Chris Hawkins offering spins at BBC 6 Music. NOTION (2O21) Abbie’s new EP ‘Water Based Lullabies’ is out July 1st via House Anxiety.
