The line-up for BiFest Wales 2015 has now been confirmed:
8pm – Catherine Elms – dark cabaret singer-songwriter & pianist
Catherine Elms is a singer/songwriter and pianist from Swansea, whose music combines heavy rock, dark cabaret, emotionally-charged melodies and idiosyncratic lyrics. Heavily influenced by Tori Amos, Kate Bush and Amanda Palmer, Catherine’s music has been described as dark, moving, adventurous, and honest.

9pm – Between Waves – Female-fronted melodic rock.
Between Waves formed in May 2013. Sick of hearing the same old derivative and safe scream verse/ singing chorus format, Between Waves from day one were intent on creating a distinctive, original and powerful sound, with the key word being BIG!!
Between Waves uses tuneful female vocals to create story based compositions that are instantly relatable to even the most stubborn of listener. With a wide variety of songs Between Waves has something for everyone to rock out to.
