UK singer-songwriter Demi Marriner released her debut EP 'Tracks and Trails' in April, and within 48 hours of release, the EP went to #1 on the UK iTunes Country Album Chart. Since then, Demi has attracted attention on social media from country blogs far and wide (including a feature in Maverick Magazine), and has recorded a radio session with BBC Gloucestershire, featured on BBC WM with Adrian Goldberg, recorded a BBC Introducing session and had frequent airplay. In addition to this, she recently recorded a session with Baylen Leonard (DJ at BBC Radio 2 and BBC London).
Demi has also had the opportunity to perform at a number of festivals this year including Wychwood Festival (on the main stage), 2000 Trees Festival (at the Forest Sessions) and Cheltenham Jazz Festival. She also was invited to perform at Blackthorn Festival where she caught the eye of the w21Music team, who subsequently invited her to be a part of their monthly songwriters evening in Manchester.
Going from strength to strength since the release of her debut EP, Demi supported Tia McGraff at the Marrs Bar in Worcester. She then went on to support Lucy Spraggan in Wolverhampton, closely followed by the wonderful opportunity to open for Rufus Wainwright at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham, where she received a fantastic response from the 2000 people in attendance. Demi also opened for BJ Barham (American Aquarium lead singer) on his solo UK tour in Manchester. As well as this, Demi has also played multiple shows overseas, including Venice, the Netherlands and Ireland, most recently being a week's worth of shows in Dublin. After recognition from the Dutch Country Music Association, Demi is planning a return to the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium in the near future.
