Cobalt Tales

Somewhere between Dylan and Mary Chapin Carpenter you'll find Cobalt Tales! Good stuff!

- R. Sandland, Tamworth


Singer-songwriters, Cobalt Tales, are a female duo based in Sheffield. Originally from Wigan and Stockport, Pat sings powerful vocals, plays acoustic guitar and harmonica on occasion, whilst Nuala plays bass guitar, sings harmony and adds clarinet, whistles and acoustic guitar. Their combined influences and writing talents cover a wide variety of song styles. They deliver music from the heart that stirs the soul. ​

Pat and Nuala met in the Scottish Highlands and formed Cobalt Tales in 2016. They enjoy touring throughout the UK and playing festivals, live music venues, cosy folk sessions, charity fund raisers and local community events.

Cobalt Tales released their debut album, 'Ever Changing Blue' in 2019.

Pat and Nuala have been busy writing new material, and have built up a bank of exciting new songs which they look forward to releasing on future albums.

They are a talented pair that play the most lovely original music. I sat and smiled right through their set.

Homespun humour and great tunes. Cobalt Tales are people-people people! The breadth of styles is unexpected too. Loving the album, 'Ever Changing Blue'... Sets up a relaxed mood to be savoured.
