ENGLISH HERETIC is a multimedia project, in operation since 2003.

Musically diverse, drawing inspiration from psychedelic folk, ritual ethnographic recordings, electronica, TV documentaries, and field recordings, English Heretic’s sound moves from the sinister to the absurd.

JASON STEEL  cut his teeth playing & singing in the ‘Psych-Folk’ collective The Owl Service.
His solo work is a different beast, however; a mongrel hybrid of twisted pre-war blues, austere British folk and inebriated, sentimental song in all its forms.  Steel has released three albums & numerous E.P.s, appeared on the Rough Trade label and recorded three BBC sessions. He has completed several national tours, sharing stages with Meg Baird & Michael Chapman.
His last album ‘Crucible Songs’ was described by Stuart Maconie as ‘Quietly virtuosic and really, quite seductive’.

ROBERT SUNDAY: Rif Mountain recording star, variously described as elusive, enigmatic, beguiling, off kilter, brooding and misanthropic, jaded and holy; whose work contains innate literacy and breathless lyricism.
Sometimes compared to Bill Fay, Palace Music, Lee Hazlewood, The Handsome Family, and Kris Kristofferson...but ultimately his own take on the sad, wry folk songs that are a keystone of the genre is wonderful-gentle, moving, immensely well written'.
