Fancy - There Be Unicorns

Fancy - There Be Unicorns
So there’s Lenny on guitary things, Donna on vocals and percussy things, and John on vibraphone, his dad’s Pianica from the 1970s and percussy things. Songs by John, Donna, and lately Lenny too.

Our sound is fun and eclectic, with a grungy edge and a laid-back groove.

Donna’s voice is described as smoky and sultry. She adds a little gristle at times too.

Lenny’s background in jazz means he can play pretty well anything. He has two main guitars, his bluesy heavier sounding blue guitar, and his cleaner semi-acoustic Sunburst . He also plays bass, bass uke, mandolin and parlour guitar. And is in charge of the kick.

John is a slow study on all his instruments, haunting us on the vibe or squeezing out a wheeze on the Pianica.

They all do backing vocals. They don’t play much but when they do they are very entertaining. As of 1 January 2019 Fancy has six recorded songs out and are starting to record their EP. We play live too, about half originals. We are lovely, passionate, light. Songs can be about love gone wrong, planting trees, finding love or climate change.

About this track...

Written to open an art exhibition called There Be Unicorns Out There held in Dungog, this artisanal piece celebrates the power of fantasy and the power of Mother Nature to deliver those fantasies. Dragon cries are really black cockatoos, and these open and close the song, sung beautifully by Donna Cavanough. Even our band name is Fancy!
