Giles Stelfox is an indie-pop solo-artist from the South UK. Inspired by artists such as; The 1975, Coldplay, Jack Garratt, HAIM, Sam Fender and Foals, Giles' music combines energetic guitar-driven rock with DIY pop production, fused with lush R&B layers that he self-produces. His lyrical themes cover romance, sex, social issues, obsession, media perceptions of image, and self-reflection, turned around in an upbeat and optimistic way that is relatable and catchy. As an up and coming artist, Giles started his solo career in 2018, establishing his sound and style with his debut 5 singles, notably including 'Your Intentions' and 'Heart You Hide'. Playing all the instruments on his records, Giles incorporates his multi-instrumentalist talents into his live show, with the art of real-time looping, where he creates the sound of a band whilst only performing solo. Giles has been featured on BBC Introducing Berkshire 5 times. He was due to play Threshold Festival X 2020 for second consecutive time in early April.
Giles has scheduled the release of an eclectic and diverse range of new singles over May and June. These 4 songs craft a mix of sonic colours; from neon R&B new-jack-swing beats, to big indie-pop synth-wave textures combined with percussive and funky guitar lines. He is back bringing his new self-produced music to the forefront with his new direction of seductive luscious soundscapes and dynamic punchy vocal performances.

ACOUSTIC SET RIDER
SOLO LIVE SET RIDER
Giles plays either acoustic, or looping solo sets, depending on tech requirements, stage time and logistics. His solo setup is a stripped down, looping show where Giles plays multiple instruments, inspired by artists such as Jack Garratt, Jacob Collier and KT Tunstall.
He uses Ableton Live to loop the instruments live, with pre-recorded samples triggered underneath.
BBC Introducing South have featured Giles' tracks 'Time' twice, and 'Sonic Romance' on BBC Radio Berkshire for the Reading and Leeds festival special, and have been acclaimed by Bridgitte Tetteh and Linda Serck.
"While he's a name that has yet to cross a lot of minds, Giles Stelfox has a lot of credits to his relatively young music career. Having primarily focused as a recording engineer, producer and freelance live musician for a variety of unsigned acts - The Science of the Lamps, Tilly Valentine and Chinchilla amongst others - until now he has turned his multi-instrumentalist talents into a debut solo release, 'Time'. And it's an impressive one: a soft pop number clocking in at just under five minutes, with components that hint at both smooth ambient electronica and jazzy prog rock. It's catchy, well thought out, sophisticated and well worth a listen."
