Described by The Huffington Post as “brilliantly quirky” - Worry Dolls are a tenacious duo born out of the joint talents of Zoe Nicol & Rosie Jones, who met in Liverpool when they were 18. Their great chemistry & love of harmony led to them starting a contemporary bluegrass band playing Nickel Creek & Gillian Welch & Appalachian songs. Paired together to have their songwriting critiqued by Paul McCartney, they were inspired to start co-writing, and are now an almost telepathically-linked songwriting force.
Blending the tender urgency of Zoe’s Irish-inflected voice and Earl Scruggs-style banjo with the fiery integrity of Rosie’s vocals and rhythmic guitar, Worry Dolls have toured UK venues & festivals extensively, supporting the likes of Joan Armatrading, Tim O’Brien & Cara Dillon.
After a summer of grafting on the festival circuit, they quit their jobs and lives in London (where they have developed a burgeoning cult following) to fly to Nashville and record their debut album. Produced by Neilson Hubbard, featuring songwriting collaborations with Jeff Cohen (The Shires), Ben Glover (Gretchen Peters), Joe Doyle (Reba Mcentire) & playing from Eamon McLoughlin (Ashley Monroe) & Kenny Hutson (Little Big Town) - it’s set to be released on January 27th 2017 via Bread & Butter Music
