Here's some information on Ethemia you might like to read


We are acoustic Duo Ethemia aka Michaela Mott & Berny Poulton. After the past success with our EP ‘Common Ground’ we were invited for the second time to support the legendary band ‘The Osmonds’. Sadly, lock down and the pandemic delayed and changed many of our plans. However, we have written a lot of new material and this year we are currently working on our new EP called ‘Past Shadows’ and busy planning a tour.

How others have described us

Ethemia’s distinctive sound with strong vocals, beautiful harmonies, catchy melodies and great guitar riffs brings 'Fleetwood Mac' to mind. Their trademark charismatic onstage chemistry and heartfelt performances certainly leave their mark.

They have toured extensively throughout Europe and the UK, and have performed, and been broadcast on many radio stations including BBC Introducing (for which they were nominated), plus The Gaby Roslin Show BBC London, and featured on BBC Radio 2.

They have supported many world class acts including, The Strawbs, Curved Air, Loudon Wainwright III, Steeleye Span, John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett and The Osmonds.
