The Listeners


The Listeners are an acoustic/electric duo from the North of England. They have been together for two years having played on the same circuit for several years in different bands.

Emma Thorpe provides the main voice, a velvet glove softening the punch, delivering her songs with, in turn, uncompromising invective and heart on sleeve insight. Robert Cook, as well as adding a dark baritone voice, brings his rootsy rock guitar credentials to The Listeners feast.

The Listeners have won over audiences from many punk, rock and folk music.The band have a growing reputation on the acoustic underground scene in the North of England and have been favourites of BBC radio presenters and University radio DJ's, having performed many live sessions.

The duo have recently been working on a collection of songs which at the time of writing is just going to press and is now available worldwide via I TUNES. The project has been produced by Ewan Davies who has worked with many artists, from Arctic Monkeys to The Editors. The photography for the c.d and website artwork has been taken by Chris Saunders of Sheffield who has photographed many interesting people including Bill Hicks and David lynch as well as many famous musicians.
