FRANCESCA PIDGEON - COMPOSER
Multi-instrumentalist Francesca Pidgeon leads the art rock collective, Dilettante, based in the North of England.
Primarily a guitarist and singer but, owing to a lack of social skills, she taught herself clarinet, saxophone, piano, bass and trumpet and bought a loop pedal in an attempt to avoid human contact. However, this proved difficult and she soon enlisted the aid of Aaron Collins-Wood (bass) Jack Mee (drums).
For fans of St Vincent, Kate Bush, Fiona Apple, tUnE-yArDs, Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein.
Pip and Francesca have worked together before on the comedy-horror DAY OF THE 20,000 GAMMON, which has just been selected for Underwire Film Festival, and has seen Francesca nominated for 'Best Composer'. We're delighted that she's composing for DREAM BIG.
