House of Figs is a collaboration between two prominent Bristol-based artists, Beth Calverley (The Poetry Machine) and Bethany M. Roberts (Hands of the Heron / Hedera). Bethany conjures soundscapes with her voice and pedalboard, creating an otherworldly choir around Beth's tenderly powerful poetry.
Headlining events at Bristol Poetry Festival and Komedia Bath, and performing at Green Man, WOMAD and Bristol Harbour Festival, they explore complex feelings around anxiety, loss, belonging and womanhood, cocooned in a sonic sanctuary of ambient textures.
"A great collection with an honest, real theme." - Benjamin Zephaniah
