"There are three things to know about Warrilow – he has a captivating voice; his dexterity on a guitar is mesmerising; and he deserves recognition" - Toast Magazine, Sheffield.

Touted as an act to follow on BBC Introducing in Newcastle, Warrilow plays what he calls ghost-folk: music inspired by trad folk, story-telling traditions and poetry. His songs are built around atmosphere, which he creates with melodic, fingerpicked playing on a classical guitar handmade by a relative, and metrical lyrics ringing with the sounds of Nick Drake, renewed with Crosby, Stills and Nash harmonies and Wild Beast driven rhythms.

Warrilow, or Rhys Bethell as he's known to his folks, hails from the little market town of Retford. He made his way to Sheffield by way of childhood summers at Beverley and Cropredy Folk Festival, finally settling in Newcastle upon Tyne where he seeks the ghosts of Reivers, Romans and rebels set in the stonework, iron and rivets of his adopted home.
