Protest singer and folk songwriter Grace Petrie has been singing songs about how bad the Tories are since May 2010. In that time she has amassed a huge fan base from across the folk, punk, comedy and alternative scenes. In 2018 she released Black Tie, an ode to self-expression that quickly became a queer anthem and cemented her place as one of the most important songwriters of her generation. Earlier this year she completed a UK arena tour supporting Frank Turner, and she is currently providing tour support for Emmy winning comic Hannah Gadsby. You might have heard her on Radio 4’s the Now Show, on Radio 2 in session with Jo Whiley, or the Guilty Feminist Podcast.

Kelly tours the UK predominantly as a solo artist and was awarded Best Female Solo Artist and Breakout Artist in the 2015/2016 NMG Awards, as well as winning Best Female Artist 2016 in the FATEA Awards. She attended the Folk Alliance International in Kansas, USA, as one of their Official Showcase Artists and has performed in Europe on a debut tour of Germany and in Portugal at Costa del Folk Festival. Kelly released her third studio album, 'Botany Bay', on 28th September 2018. 'Botany Bay' is a full, traditional English folk album, made up entirely of traditional folk songs collected in Kelly's home county of Hertfordshire.

A big thank you to Grace Petrie and Kelly Oliver for volunteering her artistry to support the Labour Party's General Election campaign.
