Gwendolyn Snowdon


I'm a folk artist who started out in numerous bands but have now gone solo. Always on the lookout for cool collaborations and gigs, both solo and with a live band.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Everything. It gives me a purpose beside the daily chores of life.

What is your music dream?

I have many music dreams: performing in other countries, a theatre tour, releasing many albums, doing cool collaborations with other musicians and visual artists.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I'd clean up all the pollution and plant lots of forests.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Jolene by Dolly Parton

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Sandy Denny, Maddy Prior, Cara Dillon, Old Blind Dogs

What inspires you to make music?

The beautiful songs of times gone by.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

I don't have a specific message. If people enjoy my music that's enough for me.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

At first nervous, but after that really happy.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

So much digital things, which is good, but I think the local scene is sometimes forgotten.

What do you think of Drooble?

Nice place so far!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

People who think you're not a proper musician if vocals are your main instrument.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Not so much, but not because I don't want to. I lack time and money to go see many local gigs.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Persistence and creativity.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Beth Patterson, Old Blind Dogs, Ossian
