Ethemia / Press

" Fabulous music! I'm utterly overwhelmed! Intoxicating... quite hypnotic watching you both. Gosh that was fantastic! So beautiful... the whole studio is lost for words. I feel so blessed to have met you. Will you please come back on my show... I would love that". ~ Gaby Roslin BBC Radio London

"Quirk Of Fate" kicks off with the powerful and thought provoking "Fingerprints On Me", a love song that is full of images of obsession and possession and which lays down a marker that Ethemia are a duo more than happy to dip a toe, foot, leg into the darker side of the human condition. ...Ethemia have only been together a relatively short time, but seem to have a real chemistry about them, something only enhanced by what seems like a slight West Country lilt. "Quirk Of Fate" an assured debut that more than lives up to its opening promise.

“Album Review 'Quirk of Fate' "...STUNNING... the coming together of Bernie Poulton and Michaela Mott to form Ethemia is more on the level of Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush’s tender and piquant duet. ... it is a timeless anachronistic record, it could have been recorded thirty years ago or might be of thirty years hence, but the result of writing and performing of this standard is that you truly feel it in the here and now"”

“Ethemia delivered the message about doing what we can to help others with support and love. A very humbling performance that almost brought me to tears with their true to life words that really hit home. They wouldn’t have cared if they were performing to one man and his dog they gave it their all and even brought the audience a present beyond their soothing music. Highlighting the Oxfam moto of giving they handed out palm sized envelops that encased a phrase to lift your spirits. Handwritten and sealed with a floral stamp, mine read: “Beyond the words and all that scarred, you will hear the truth.” Their performance of original songs left a lump in your throat and a goosebump feeling that sets your mind back to the real motive behind Oxjam.”

"...Ethemia performed a great set, fantastic folk duo great guitar work and beautiful harmonies. They played a set of all originals that tug at the heart strings and then get the heart racing"

“Discover all about contemporary folk duo Ethemia in this exclusive SoGlos interview”

"...the duo knows how to combine two vocals and two guitars without getting in each other’s way. Imagine if The Civil Wars instead of being seeped in the lore of Nashville and the music of the deep south were instead forged of The West Country and a more idealized pastoral tradition and you then have a useful handle on this duo."

" I got the priviledge of seeing Ethemia perform last night at an intimate gig...they were absolutely incredible, amazing..their voices & guitars dancing...one of my albums of this year so far"

"It was so lovely to meet Michaela & Berny of Ethemia in the studio today, these guys have masses of energy"

"You heard them (Ethemia) here first on The Late Gig, Swindon 105.5 Fm, next Radio 1, I reckon"
