Are We Strangers Now? Presents: Literature Thieves + Natalie McCool + Laura James + Yarbo + Hannah & Lois
Literature Thieves are a Manchester based female trio made up of Angela Hazeldine, Amy Clarkson and Cassie Elwood. Formed in 2011, they are a close knit group with tight harmonies and melodic simplicity. Self taught and displaying an urge to play plenty of live shows; they have frequented the Manchester scene for the past eighteen months.
The trio have built a devoted local following, and have gained musical and lyrical influences from their 'pop / folk' up bringing, drawing from Simon and Garfunkel, Dolly Parton, Buell Kazee and The Carter family, not forgetting Stevie Nicks or Kate Bush.
The name Literature Thieves comes from Cassie being called a 'literature thief' for never giving back books she borrowed from her good friends!
