Helghyer (Pronounced Hell-hear) is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Natalie Earl. The name itself comes from the Cornish word for "Hunter," Being of Cornish decent, Natalie holds the county particularly close to her heart.
Her unique, rich voice, as succulent as t-bone steak or duck egg custard combined with intertwining harmonies and textured instrumentation result in deeply personal, melodic songs which can be dark and haunting at times.
Her often ambiguous lyrics, with a strong emphasis on storytelling, provide social commentary on everything from family traditions, falling from grace, witchcraft and Cornish folklore.
Fuelled by hard work and a strong DIY ethic, Helghyer’s self-released debut EP is due to be released in June this year.
