Moulettes are an English alt-folk or indie folk band. The band was formed in 2002 in Glastonbury by Hannah Miller (Songwriter, Vocals, Cello, Guitar), Ruth Skipper (Vocals, Bassoon, Auto-harp), Robert Skipper (later of The Holloways), Oliver Austin (Drums, Guitar, vocals) and Ted Dwane. Hannah met Georgina Leach during a strings recording session and joined in 2004 after the band moved to Manchester.
Since the bands resettlement South in 2007 the ensemble has seen, at different stages, the addition of percussionist Rob Arcari, multi-instrumentalist Jim Mortimore (Arthur Brown, Chris Jagger) and singers Laura Hockenhull and Faye Houston.
Moulettes often incorporate Orchestral and Progressive elements more than their peers and have often received positive reviews from mainstream press due to their original, dynamic and other-worldly sound. They have been nominated for several Best Of The Year lists and won Fatea roots-music Best band of 2012.
Having toured extensively and played at many festivals since their inception Moulettes have shared the stage and studio with Seasick Steve, John Paul Jones, The Ting Tings, Mumford and Sons, Band of Skulls, Paul Heaton, Bonobo, Liz Green, The Unthanks, Arthur Brown and many more of note.
