Odette Michell is an award-winning British folk singer-songwriter, guitarist and bouzouki player with a bold new take on the acoustic tradition and a voice capable of demonstrating the finer points of both folk and traditional song with genuine craftsmanship.
Currently on tour promoting her first full length album 'The Wildest Rose', things have been moving at something of a pace for Odette ever since she released her 2018 debut EP 'By Way Of Night'.
One year on, Odette's debut album 'The Wildest Rose' was released to wide acclaim, gaining Odette extensive air play on both BBC Radio and international Folk Radio, followed by a string of live interviews and a tour launched in the spring of 2019.
An engaging and dynamic live performer, Odette has since gone on to open for folk legends Phil Beer, Martin Carthy, Reg Meuross and BBC R2 Folk Award Nominees Ninebarrow, and is currently touring both solo and with her trio in support of the new album.
