Wovoka Gentle

William J Stokes and twins Imogen and Ellie Mason first met when the Masons’ old band was supporting Stokes’ old band. Two discontinued projects later, Wovoka Gentle was formed.

The project is based loosely in Americana and folk, though experimental urges among all three members quickly layer numerous other influences over these foundations, leaving only glimpses remaining.

“Wovoka Gentle is an evolving project that demonstrates the importance of risk, experimentation and growth, challenging boundaries and opening up questions”, say the band. “We want to experiment enough to involve you. Our roots remain in traditional soil – we love the structure in songs, we love songwriting – but we want you to find your own narrative in our music and join in with us”.

Having released two EP’s last year – ‘Yellow’ and ‘Blue’ – their new single, ‘When Cameron Was In Egypt’s Land Let My Cameron Go’ sees them team up with producer and engineer Gareth Jones, known for his work with Depeche Mode, Wire, Erasure, These New Puritans and more.
