Faber Alt signs Fyfe Dangerfield

UK musician and songwriter Fyfe Dangerfield is the latest addition to the Faber Alt roster.

Fyfe Dangerfield first came to prominence as the founder and lead singer of Guillemots. The band secured a Mercury Prize nomination for gold-certified debut Through The Windowpane (2006). Follow-up album Red (2008) peaked at No.9. Guillemots also had a run of Top 40 singles.

Fyfe Dangerfield released the solo album Fly Yellow Moon in 2010, which peaked at No.12.

Dangerfield has also interpreted Billy Joel’s She’s Always A Woman for a John Lewis campaign, composed commissions for The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, cellist Natalie Clein and Ex Cathedra choir, and founded the free jazz improv collective Gannets.

He recently launched multimedia creative platform Channels May Change with the 12-episode series Birdwatcher, a mix of music, songs, sound & characters, with accompanying artworks.

In recent months, Dangerfield has been sharing new music again, including Shook and The Zebra Wind, both premiered by Chris Hawkins on BBC 6 Music. He recently played a sell-out London residency at The State51 Factory.

I’m really excited to start our journey together!”
