Greenness is the musical project of French singer-songwriter Cess Frangi and English producer and composer Graham Pratt.
Drawing inspiration from hybrid genres, such as trip-hop and folktronica, the music of Greenness aims to create an immersive and emotional experience through the use of various acoustic instruments merged with electronic beats, sound effects, field recordings and evocative bilingual lyrics, in a bid to explore and deepen our connection with ourselves, each other and the environment.
Based in Brighton, the pair has performed in some of the city's biggest venues (Brighton Centre, Concorde 2, The Haunt...), opened at a sold-out event in London's iconic Royal Albert Hall and toured across the UK, France, Spain and Germany, equally at ease with a full backing band on festival stages or in smaller settings with their more intimate, stripped-back duo set.
Notable performances include supporting US folk artists Marissa Nadler and Handmade Moments, opening for UK top 10 rock band The Slow Readers Club and sharing a stage with the likes of Alice Russell, Orbital, Dub Pistols and Asian Dub Foundation.
Following the successful launch of two thematic EPs (Bicephaly in 2016 and Cyclicity in 2018), Greenness are now working on their debut album Sunrooms, set to be released independently in 2021.
"Electro-acoustic duo Greenness from Brighton are a revelation, with Cess’ awesome voice superbly complemented by Graham’s distinctive guitar work." - The Morning Star
