Divine Schism: Me Lost Me

Details

Delighted to be working with Me Lost Me on her UK tour and bringing her to Oxford too!

Jayne delights in experimenting with songwriting and storytelling, creating a beguiling mix of soaring vocals and atmospheric electronics that playfully push the boundaries of genre.

It's the project of Newcastle-based artist Jayne Dent who takes influence from folk, art pop, noise, ambient and improvised music. Her work has been described in The Guardian as 'stripping folk back to its bones while letting its future echoes bleed out. With her prolific writing and extensive touring schedule, her unique sound has won much support across the musical spectrum. Dent has notably performed live for BBC Radio 3's After Dark Festival and as part of the 2022 BBC Proms alongside Spell Songs, Royal Northern Sinfonia and the Voices of the Rivers Edge Choir.

She received the prestigious Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers and was 2020-2021 Artist in Residence at Sage Gateshead. With Me Lost Me's third full-length album RPG, released in July 2023 on Upset the Rhythm, she has expanded her sound palette even further, diving deep into the question of what it means to make contemporary folk music. RPG presents the idea of songwriting as a role-playing game and invites the listener in to explore this strange new world of fantasy pastoral lands, sleepless unreality, and the joy of losing yourself in stories.
