Propelled by the Manic Street Preachers’ lyric “libraries gave us power”, The Anchoress(aka Welsh producer and multi-instrumentalist, Catherine Anne Davies) is a voracious devourer of words and music. From her early roots as a classically-trained flautist, to her current obsession with vintage synthesizers, Davies has spent much of the last four years developing her writing and engineering skills to become one of the most interesting up-and-coming songwriters and producers in the UK and has collaborated with a variety of artists including the London Philharmonic, Nitin Sawhney, Ed Harcourt, Bernard Butler, Liam Howe and Paul Statham.
