BIO

BRISTOL, UK

Sennen Timcke is an English born singer-songwriter inspired by classic American and British Folk music. With a voice that is unique and compelling; and a deft finger-picking and rhythmic guitar style, his friendly and humorous stage presence allow him to play honest and heartfelt songs in an engaging and sincere way. From busking around the UK and Europe to playing in pubs, concert halls and UK music festivals, Sennen is a busy circuit acoustician (with & without band) displaying intensity of songwriting which hauls him ahead of the pack.

After a storming reception at Lyme Regis Folk Festival in 2015 and a sell out show at the Marine Theatre supporting the Headliners in Eliza and Martin Carthy in 2016, Sennen also made an appearance on the Chai Wallahs stage at Shambala Festival where his track ‘Circumstances’ featured as track 2 of the official Shambala CD. 2017 saw Sennen playing a further 40 regional shows, including his self-sprung 'Sennen Cove & Back' tour and supporting the Winner of Best of British Unsigned Female 2016 Nessi Gomes on her UK Tour. With a new EP coming soon - and a debut album in the pipeline, 2018 promises to be both rich in music and busy on the circuit.

Playing sets solo, duetting with singer Claire Ji or performing with a full band, Sennen’s show will take you on a heartfelt journey. Combining melodic, classic songwriting with upbeat rhythms and foot-stomping choruses, his music has been compared to Ben Howard, Paul Simon and James Taylor.

His latest release, the Closer Now EP was well received and compared to contemporaries such as Ben Howard, whilst carving out a unique summery Folk, Country-pop sound. "hugely enjoyable. It resounds with driving and rhythmic acoustic-based tunes….Ben Howard wouldn’t be a stretch comparison". 

Now on tour around the UK and Europe promoting his new EP ‘Closer Now’.
