Giles Stelfox creates the music of a solo-artist with the sound of a band; an independent artist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Reading, UK. He fuses guitar-driven indie rock and DIY pop production with self-produced lush Rn'B and synth-pop soundscapes. Challenging the definition of live performance, he live loops all the layers of his music that he creates from scratch, whilst still showcasing his charisma and attention-grabbing energy to connect with a crowd. His most recent 4 singles have been featured and acclaimed by BBC Introducing. His 'Live at Studio 91' performance videos have been showcased by VOxjam, and he has been a semi-finalist for The Pilton Stage Glastonbury competition 2022, performing in front of Michael Eavis.

"An ingenious artist who manages to flesh out his pop songs with just himself and his own wizardry" - Shaun Keaveny, BBC Radio 6.

"An ingenious artist who manages to flesh out his pop songs with just himself and his own wizardry" - Shaun Keaveny, BBC Radio 6.

BBC Introducing South and Kennet Radio, Newbury have featured Giles' latest tracks 'You Talk Dirty With Wine' and 'I'm Not In Love (I'm Only Calling You)' on BBC Radio Berkshire and have been acclaimed by both 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." - The Modern Record.
