Fiona Brice

Composer, arranger and violinist Fiona Brice has performed and recorded with artists including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Gorillaz, Liam Gallagher, John Grant and Anna Calvi. Most recently, she has toured with Phoebe Bridgers.

She also records and performs as an artist in her own right, releasing an album, ‘Postcards From’, through Bella Union in 2016. Now she’s set to release a new composition for a string quartet through Bigo & Twigetti next month.

Across three movements – the first of which is available to listen to now – ‘String Quartet No 1’ has a contemplative, often mournful feel. At first surrounded by a bustling energy, as the piece progresses it gives way to a more focussed openness.

The recording is set for release on 19 Sep. Listen to the first movement here.
