The Frampton Sisters

The Frampton Sisters

Freddie (21) and Charlie (19) Frampton began their musical journey at a very early age.

Born and raised on the island of Sanday in the Orkneys they were both home-schooled and, as is standard on the island, multi-instrumentalists by the age of 5 and 7!

Relocating to East Sussex in time for Charlie to begin secondary school the girls continued their musical journey as part of a band with their parents – performing as a family band at weddings and charity events around the country.

Songwriting has become increasingly important to the girls and they now feel ready to let their music find a wider audience.

Following a break where Charlie spent two years at the Brit School while Freddie gave birth to her little boy the girls entered the BBC Young Folk Award last year and reached the finals. They performed at the 2019 Cambridge Folk Festival in August and released their debut single “Bird of a Feather”, which went on to garner major radio support, not least from Robert Elms at BBC London.

While their songwriting skills have continued to develop apace (they list their influences as Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, James Taylor, Passenger, Fleetwood Mac and their parents) this first single perfectly captures the spirit of two sisters making their way. Says Freddie: “The songs are about real life scenarios and life in general – we try to write stories that people can relate to. ‘Birds of a Feather’ is based on equality and how, in the grand scheme of things, we are ALL the same. So let’s enjoy it.”
