Iona Griffey, 19-year-old Folk-Pop-Rock artist from Suffolk, releases debut album “Lovers & Strangers”


At just 19 years old, Iona Griffey, the Folk-Pop-Rock sensation hailing from Suffolk, UK, has finally unveiled her highly anticipated debut album, “Lovers & Strangers,” on August 19th, 2023.

Building on the momentum generated by her hit singles ‘Colourblind’, ‘Sweet Tooth’, and ‘Candy’, which received airplay on prestigious platforms like BBC Radio and garnered attention on global playlists and stations, Iona’s musical journey has been nothing short of remarkable.

Earlier this year, she even graced the airwaves with a captivating live acoustic session on BBC Radio.

Despite her youth, Iona has already achieved remarkable feats in the live music scene. From performing in intimate pub settings to commanding larger venues, participating in charity events, and taking the stage at festivals, she has honed her craft as a singer-songwriter.

This process has given birth to her emotionally charged and introspective songwriting, amplified by her commanding female vocals.

Iona’s musical style is a fusion of Pop-Rock, R&B, and Folk, resulting in a sound that stands out as a breath of fresh air amidst the dominance of electronic pop music. Her signature is the deliberate use of real instruments to create a solid, instrument-driven sound.

With a combination of rock and acoustic guitars, and her formidable vocal prowess, Iona’s music is an embodiment of genuine artistic expression.
