Worry Dolls are a compelling duo born out of the joint talents of multi-instrumentalists Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones.

Serendipity brought them together at an open mic night when they were 18, both studying music in Liverpool. Both redheads with guitars, on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters, and both falling under the spell of 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'. Paired by their teachers for an opportunity to have their songwriting critiqued by Paul McCartney, they were inspired to start co-writing, and could now be described as an almost telepathically linked songwriting force.​ ​

T​hey set off​ from University​ together​,​ making music as Worry Dolls. It was a new sound, blending the tender urgency of Zoe's Irish-influenced voice with the fiery integrity of Rosie's vocals and rhythmic guitar. Zoe transferred her fingerpicking skills to ukulele, followed by Earl Scruggs-style banjo, motivated by players like Emily Robison (Dixie Chicks).​ These days playing piano has been added to the live performances and Worry Dolls frequently perform with a band.​ They have also started touring in Europe spreading the special blend of UK Americana folk rock.

The duo signed to Bread & Butter, who released their debut LP, Go Get Gone, ​2017. A 'Song of the Year' nomination lead to them performing at London's historic Hackney Empire with Ethan Johns at the UK Americana Awards earlier this year, alongside Robert Plant and Mumford and Sons. The duo will flying back to Nashville to showcase at AmericanaFest this September​ in support of their album release Stateside this summer 2018.
