At just 18 Tilly’s lyric writing and delicate instrumentation on mandolin and harmonium demonstrate a maturity beyond her years. She’s already featured on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music & BBC Introducing, and in 2014 she launched her 6 track EP Painted Faces which was produced by Ben Walker, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner. In 2017 she is recording her debut album with contributions from a number of award winning folk musicians including Sam Kelly and James Delarre.
In 2016 despite being busy with A level studies she fitted in three tour dates with the Radio 2 Folk Award nominees Mawkin and opened for one of her great song writing influences, Irish musician Mick Flannery. Over the past few years she has supported some big names in the folk music world including Dave Swarbrick, Ashley Hutchings & Ken Nicol, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, The Unthanks and Gilmore & Roberts. She was the youngest artist chosen by the EFDSS for a workshop of young folk singer-songwriters which included rising stars such as Maz O’Connor, Sam Kelly, Fabian Holland, Ange Hardy & the Carrivick sisters.
“I’m delighted to be recording my debut album with GingerDog Records, due for release in summer 2017. I’ll be joined by some exceptionally talented musicians – BBC Folk Award Winner Sam Kelly, BBC Jazz Award Winner Kit Downes, and James Delarre, the fiddle player from the BBC Folk Award nominated band Mawkin.”
Tilly grew up just outside Bury St Edmunds and is now at the University of York. She has been writing and performing music since she was 13. She has launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise money to produce the album. Please support her by going to: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tilly-moses-debut-album

“In return for your help, I’ve taken time to come up with some great rewards – from things as small as a postcard written from me to you, to things as big as myself and some fellow musicians coming to your house to serenade your friends and family. Your money would go towards the recording costs, designing the album artwork, mastering and printing the album, and towards the costs of promotion. A donation of just a few pounds is welcome, as well as larger contributions.”
