The Cadbury Sisters 

Like all the interesting things in life, The Cadbury Sisters come with a secret – their great great grandfather was William Cadbury, the man behind the world famous chocolate company. Jessica (vocals and percussion), Mary (vocals and electric guitar) and Lucy Cadbury (vocals and acoustic guitar) are his direct descendants and yes, they are all sisters. Their goal is simple; to take the spirit of traditional English Folk music, infuse its DNA with contemporary influences such as Bat For Lashes, Daughter and First Aid Kit before disseminating it into the world. 

The Cadbury Sisters live in a half forgotten dream, inhabiting places we remember, yet sometimes feel uneasy about returning to. Their music is a meld of harmony, discord and mindfulness, their songs the sonic equivalent of watching Swallows And Amazons or The Railway Children inter-spliced with The Wicker Man or Lord Of The Flies.

The Cadbury Sisters released their debut EP Close via Fear Of Fiction on 16th June last year and followed it up with their beautiful new single Weight Of It - released through the prestigious RAK Records and featuring a cover of Steve Harley’s “Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)”.
