Ethemia is an acoustic singing/songwriting duo with Michaela Mott and Berny Poulton. Although we have only been together for just over 2 years our experience is extensive and professional.  Event organisers have described us as “…one of the hardest working bands on the circuit”.  Since our formation we have performed over 240 gigs and appeared on over 40 radio stations including BBC Introducing. We were nominated to attend BBC Musicians Masterclass 2013.  Our music has been likened to ‘Fleetwood Mac’ and ‘The Beautiful South’ and their chemistry has been likened to ‘The Civil Wars’.

Following the independent release of our first album ‘Quirk of Fate’ currently available in-store at Thats Entertainment, HMV, iTunes and Amazon. Their album has received good reviews including BBC Introducing and Fatea Magazine.

“Ethemia…absolutely amazing! Incredible! Going down as one of my albums of the year” ~ Paul Moss BBC Introducing

“Quirk of Fate… powerful and thought provoking” ~ Neil King Fatea Magazine.

“Quirk of Fate Album, in a word… Stunning! Ethemia is more on the level of Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush’s tender and piquant duet… It is a timeless album” ~ Green Man Music Promotions

“Keep doing what you are doing” Jimmy Hogarth Grammy Award Winning Producer (Duffy, Paolo Nutini, KT Tunstall)

“Nice” ~  Tom Robinson’s Fresh on the Net. BBC 6 Music

” World Class, you guys are what live music is all about…” Phil Dearing ~ The Icarus Club, London.

As well as performing in intimate, larger venues and festivals both new and established we like to put ‘real heart’ back into music.  We achieve this with our Special Sofa Sessions for those who are unable to leave their own home due to illness or disabilities. We have performed to cancer patients of all ages in their own homes as well as in hospital.
