The Woodlice

The Woodlice play ace folk pop.

The band started off as troubadours and then evolved into a skirmishing trio lying somewhere between Violent Femmes and leftfield folk with Jet McDonald on lead vocals and guitar. Simon Van der Linden on Bass and Mark Gonsalves on drums.

The album ‘Keep the Light On Baby’ came out 2021 with singles ‘Hovercraft’ and ‘Keep the Light On Baby’(played on Cerys Matthews BBC 6 Music Sunday Show)

A new EP ‘Shout DIPLOMAT Shout’ is coming out 2023.

Jet McDonald lead vocalist and songwriter with The Woodlice emerged from the Cleaner Collective of folkish Bristol musicians that included Kate Stables (This is the Kit, Rough Trade),  Rozi Plain (Memphis Industries) and Rachael Dadd (Memphis Industries).  Jet and the band have toured nationally including The Home Game and End of the Road festival and had airtime on BBC 6 Music Gideon Coe and Cerys Matthews. They are now part of Bristol “Undergrowth” collective alongside “Snails” (Jarvis Cocker and Pastels favourites), Andy Skellam (This is the Kit support) and Martin Callingham (BBC 6Music)
