Artist Bio

**** “Bursting with invention and full of surprises.”  - The Telegraph

**** “Their reeling, spinning sound corroborates the content of their songs which appear to be describing a life alive with motion. They are altogether a good thing, busy as rush hour but full of light.” - The Independent on Sunday

Sometimes folk, sometimes not. India Electric Company travel through Eastern European themes, gypsy jazz and Irish reels to end up with something “quirky and glittery - a veritable musical magpie’s nest. - Mary Ann Kennedy, BBC Radio 3

In March 2015 they released their debut album The Girl I Left Behind Me and are currently supporting and accompanying Midge Ure on the extensive Breathe Again tour throughout Europe. They’ve recently found themselves performing live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, and Glastonbury Festival.
“Fresh and gobsmacking!” - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

**** “O'Keefe is a bewilderingly talented multi-instrumentalist, it’s a wonderfully provocative new title.” 
- Songlines Magazine

“Gorgeous legs.” Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2

“A haunting collection of atmosphere, textures and layers, malleable approaches and subtly which makes a mockery of genre or any attempt to pigeonhole.” - Spiral Earth
