Wrexham based duo Igloo Hearts are made up of Welsh, married couple, James and Katie MacGregor. Their music incorporates classical piano and powerful harmonies, in a style that is hauntingly beautiful.
Igloo Hearts have been featured several times on BBC introducing Wales. Adam Waltons’ (BBC Radio Wales) response to their single (FishFood) was ‘Oh My God, that’s really, really good!!’ and ‘There is something quite ‘McCartney – esque’ about the melody’.
Indie Music For All wrote ‘I am astounded by the talent of this couple. They are a combination vocally, of the best bits of Kate Bush and Enya. A bigger compliment I couldn’t give them.’
SWNDS Records…’Favourite find of 2022… Understated. Beautifully delivered original songs…’
Igloo Hearts have played at many stunning venues around North Wales, Cheshire, Shropshire and the North West, including a recent session at St Giles Parish Church, as part of Focus Wales International Festival 2022 supporting Kizzy Crawford.
Their recent achievements include being selected for the recent Focus Wales 2021 ‘Songwriting Bootcamp’, and being chosen as finalists for the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Competition 2022. Igloo Hearts have also been shortlisted for the Purbeck Rising 2022 competition as part of Purbeck Valley Folk festival 2022.
Their passion is interesting and unexpected song writing, that keeps the listener guessing and engaged, with chord experimentation and power harmonies.
