Dilettante 'Mouth Shut' | Live from Sage Gateshead

Recorded as part of our 2021 Summer Studios


Dilettante is an art-rock collective led by multi-instrumentalist Francesca Pidgeon and is based in Northern England. Primarily a guitarist and singer but, owing to a lack of social skills, she grabbed herself a clarinet, saxophone, piano and trumpet and bought a loop pedal in an attempt to avoid human contact. However, this proved difficult and she soon enlisted the aid of Aaron Collins-Wood (bass) Jack Mee (drums).

“One of my new favourite bands”. – Tom Robinson, 6Music 

For Fans Of: St Vincent, Fiona Apple, Dirty Projectors, tUnE-yArDs and Kate Bush

‘Mouth Shut’ was recorded live from Sage Gateshead as part of our 2021 Summer Studios – a free, week-long residency at Sage Gateshead during August for 20 musicians, producers, artists, rappers and singers of all genres to be able to create new work, develop their practice or prepare for a performance.
