Vashti Bunyan is an English folk singer-songwriter and musician hailing from Newcastle. Born in 1945, she would go on to embark on a career in music having found inspiration in the music of Bob Dylan, and was penning tracks by age 20.
Interestingly, with her first album (1970s Just Another Diamond Day) failing commercially, Bunyan then decided to call it a day - until 30 years later, when it emerged that the album had become a cult classic unbeknownst to the singer herself! Since then, she has relaunched her career and is now back recording music and gigging. She performs in Manchester in October 2014 - check below to find tickets!
