The Portraits

The Portraits are Somerset acoustic duo Lorraine and Jeremy Millington, who have played six Glastonbury Festivals, and whose 2017 tribute song for Jo Cox MP was championed by Clare Balding on BBC Radio 2. Their storytelling song style, a worldly mix of Anglo-Irish harmonies and upbeat catchy tunes, provides the backdrop to a recurring theme of unity and peace in these turbulent times.

Their 2018 was largely taken up with a crazy and fabulous Song of Unity project, where people sent the band video selfies saying or singing one word into their phones, 'Harmonise', with every single one used on their new single of the same name, inspired by Jo Cox's mantra of "we have more in common than that which divides us".

Their forthcoming 2019 album 'For Our Times' will feature 'Harmonise' and a dozen more songs inspired in one way or another by the same theme of the triumph of harmony over discord. In that way, it will truly be a song cycle for the times we are living through.
