Girl From Winter Jargon comprises impassioned vocals with spiky, angular guitar riffs, raw soundscapes and looping atmospherics… 

“A jewel box loaded with a jack-knife instead of a ballerina; a voice that carries you into experiences of pain you’d rather forget – but so beautifully – that you’re forced to listen…”
Dominique Sherter, Daughter of French Concert Pianist, Annie Marchand Sherter (1935-2015)

Girl From Winter Jargon is an alternative act from County Durham, UK, drawing influences from Proto-grunge, Dark-cabaret and Neoclassical genres.

Her live performances have been described as a “one girl loopaganza” and her home recorded music has gained recognition from BBC Tees, BBC North East, BBC Scotland & BBC 6

Gaining If you can’t think of a story, then a few basic facts will do at a pinch. Where are you based, how long have you been going, who plays what, how did you meet, why did you form, where are you from, how many tracks have you previously released, when and where are you next playing live… ?

Without Apology [Girl From Winter Jargon’s Debut Single, released 08.08.19] was written, performed and recorded at home using a variety of instruments; vocals, guitar, bass and clarinet. The track was mixed & mastered by Rob Irish who later described Without Apology as a “labyrinthine cabaret which she wrote and painstakingly recorded every part for herself.” 

The single was chosen by Bob Fischer as BBC Tees Music Introducing Track of The Week [27.07.19] and was also broadcast on BBC Radio 6 Music [BBC Introducing Mixtape with Tom Robinson], BBC Scotland [with Vic Galloway], and playlisted on BBC Newcastle / North East New Music Playlist [with Nick Roberts] 

Girl From Winter Jargon was invited to perform a live session on BBC Tees with Bob Fischer and was also included as part of BBC Music Introducing in the North East’s Tips for 2020 

Without Apology featured as an exclusive track on the Noisy Daughters Compilation Vinyl L.P [17.05.19] as co-curated by Rianne Thompson of BBC Tees & Amazing Radio alongside Tracks: Darlington Music Collective and Butterfly Effect Records. 

“A great singer and a virtuoso guitarist who is really relaxed and comfortable in her own skin; she really, really was exciting and definitely original onstage.” 

– Vic Galloway, BBC 6 & BBC Scotland 

“She is a great songwriter, great guitarist, great singer and she also owns a 25 year old pet dove. I mean, it’s all win-win really isn’t it?” – Bob Fischer, BBC Tees 

“[Without Apology is] a song that demands multiple listens to appreciate its entire spectrum but once you do, you’ll get hooked on its artistry.” – N.E Volume 

“Without Apology is an impressive and intricately organised track, weaving between idiosyncratic bell-like layered guitars alongside the surprising addition of some slap bass… with the lyrics ranging from the sardonic and satirical to the contemplative…” – Narc Magazine 

“We fell in love with her music on first listen… with her dominating vocal range reminiscent of a ‘Siné’ Jeff Buckley.” – Sad For Life Records 

“ …just soak in the phenomenal songwriting and intense performance that almost makes music a solid and physical thing. Once described as ‘the female Jeff Buckley’ she is Durham’s own – Girl from Winter Jargon” – Win Big Records 

“Nuance-rich vocals combine with stand-alone electric guitar, live looping layers and strange, spooky noises. Girl From Winter Jargon is talent & art personified and one of the best things you’ll see, ever.” – Tees Music Alliance 

“A jewel box loaded with a jack-knife instead of a ballerina; a voice that carries you into experiences of pain you’d rather forget – but so beautifully – that you’re forced to listen. – Dominique Sherter, Daughter of late French Concert Pianist, Annie Marchand Sherter
