October Hamlyn-Wright (May 1983) is a British musician and recording artist. Having embarked on a solo career in recent years, October produced her debut album "Some Of The Things" in early 2014. She has played at Glastonbury Festival four times,[1] including Glastonbury 2013.[2]

Biography[edit]

Known purely by her first name, October was born in Surrey, England. She began her musical life writing songs at the age of six. Her recording career began as the founder of Euphoria, a teenage all girl school pop band in which she played the drums and electric guitar. It wasn't until her early twenties that she began singing and playing the acoustic guitar.

October now tours internationally including the likes of Australasia and Europe. Her music has become closely linked with the surf scene through playing festivals such as Boardmasters and the Red Bull series, and is often featured in publications such as Surf Girl.[3] She has played various live BBC sessions around the UK and also writes music for film, including "Free Your Soul" which features in the award winning Corduroy Films film, Lost & Found.[4] Free Your Soul was released as her debut single in August 2013, followed by the release of her debut album "Some Of The Things" in March 2014, with the most recent being her self-titled 2016 acoustic EP.
