The Lost Trades

An exciting Folk and Roots Trio who recently released their second album Petrichor.

The Lost Trades are a vocal harmony trio with a cool Laurel Canyon vibe. Three Wiltshire based singer songwriters (Jamie R Hawkins, Phil Cooper and Tamsin Quin) were brought together by a mutual love of modern folk and roots music, and joined forces in late 2019 for a three part harmony, modern folk adventure.

With a sound that is reminiscent of the California folk scene of the late 60s/early 70s, their vocal harmonies have been described as flawless, spine tingling and magical.

After a global pandemic cut short their first tour after just a single sold out gig, the band retreated to their songwriting rooms to work on their debut album, 'The Bird, The Book & The Barrel'. The album was released in June 2021 and was well received, spending 8 months in the Official UK Folk Albums Chart.

The follow up 'Petrichor' was released in March 2023 and immediately followed suit, entering the chart at #31.

A live performance involves easy interchanging of instruments, with each of the three playing guitar, bass and percussion at different points. There's always a fun intimacy to the show, with the three engaging in comfortable repartee with each other and the audience like a group of old friends.
