Charley Marlowe were a London based band whose stand out performances over a three year period at selected venues such as Cithea, 12 Bar Club, The Scala, Subterannia, The Jazz Cafe, Kashmir Cafe and Cargo established them a cult following. The band is spearheaded by the compositions of Piers Faccini and the spoken word delivery of Francesca Beard. Their sound has been described as a beautiful mutant, fusing folk to hop, avant to pop, sung to spoken word, they produce an imaginative mix of soulful lyrics, humorous pop and sensual world beat sounds. As well as their EP on Slowfoot records, Charley Marlowe wrote the score for the Channel 4 Film, Fatal Embrace and have appeared on various compilations on Brazil 5000 and Instinct. Lead singer Piers Faccini has gone on to release a solo album on Label Bleu in France called Leave No Trace (2004), to great critical acclaim. French newspaper La Liberation listed it in their top 10 albums of 2004. His second album 'Tearing Sky' has recently been released on Everloving Records in the States,co-produced by JP Plunier [Jack Johnson,Ben Harper].He has also written a number of highly acclaimed soundtracks for film and TV (including The South Bank Show) and is well know as a visual artist, exhibiting throughout Europe. Francesca Beard is a spine tingling and narcotic poet (The Independent), performing spoken word in venues from London's ICA to Roskilde's rock festival, Torino's International Festival of Culture and New York's NuYorican Cafe, with work published in anthologies such as Hodder and Stoughton's Oral and Dazed and Confused's Annual.

He has worked on numerous television and film scores and has been playing with the avant dance collective Snorkel and is a current member of Piers Faccini's tour group.
"Quirky performance poet Francesca Beard fronts this bluesy, rootsy band, contributing lyrics that linger and shivering vocals which melt into guitarist Piers Faccini’s deeper tones. The group’s heroes are Serge Gainsbourg, Nick Drake and Leadbelly, but their sound is their own and utterly magical at that"
