ABOUT THE PORTRAITS

 

Jeremy and Lorraine Millington have been playing and writing music in union since 1995, and after several incarnations during the late 1990s, finally split off from their supporting band members in 2001 to work as a singer-songwriter duo.

 

The first album under the "The Portraits" pseudonym, Kin, released in the autumn of 2006, is the result of two years' work and a number of life changing experiences. Recorded largely at home in France, it nonetheless retains a uniquely British Isles slant in its at times humorous portrayal of bereavement. Far more interested in linking with like-minded individuals than making money from their new material, and with a particularly negative slant on the music industry, The Portraits have instructed this site to make a good portion of the new material available for free download. Keen to promote the "Music is Invisible" mantra which begins the album, they choose to remain visually elusive, avoiding the video and image-led trends of the present day music industry, preferring their listeners instead to identify with the content and cultural and age references of their lyrics and melodies.  "We couldn't have created this album any sooner" says Jeremy. "This is music for people who've seen and felt life a little."
