Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates met on the London acoustic music scene several years ago and immediately shared a love of singing and writing songs. They have been unofficially collaborating for years, more often than not singing backing vocals for each others projects or just singing for the enjoyment of it.

PicaPica represents a long held ambition to join together and write, record and perform new material. They have be joined by Grammy, Mercury and MOBO winning producer and bassist Sonny Johns and multi-instrumentalist Adam Beattie.

Their debut EP – Spring & Shade is now available to pre-order here.


‘Spring and Shade’ is set for release in 2017 – watch this space for updates on that. The band will be out performing live as often as they can very soon!
