People Poems is an acoustic duo comprised of guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Harry Orme and vocalist Francesca Haincourt.
People Poems' frst EP, Monologues, was released in November 2014.
Haincourt was originally recruited as a special guest vocalist for the Monologues launch show, and has remained a member ever since. As the name suggests, People Poems' second EP 'Duologues' marks that change from solo act to duo. The pair rehearsed and recorded the EP in the 6 months following the release of Monologues, whilst performing around the north of England, and it was released in June 2015.
People Poems' reach continues to extend further outside their home base of Leeds as they make their frst appearance in a number of major UK cities this July whilst on tour in support of Duologues. Their momentum shows no sign of slowing, as afterwards they begin work on their frst full-length LP, 'Letters'. On this next release, the group will again be augmented from duo to trio with the addition of pianist Matthew Aplin, who has been rehearsing and performing with the group since the release of Duologues. Recording on the Letters LP starts later this year, with a release slated for summer 2016.
