Album Review - Ian Carmichael - Ten Years On

Posted by Tony Lawless on January 29, 2015 at 14:30 0 Comments

This is a beautifully observed recording featuring the 5-String Banjo of Ian Carmichael, on a journey of exploration through the American, Irish and Scottish traditions. It moves through moments of full out swing with America on its mind, to reflections from the Scottish highlands and time spent in Ireland. Memories of old tunes return and are…

He has been called “The Welsh Springsteen”, but there are also shades of John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be – but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.



Juxtaposition is a key theme in Martyn’s work. The…

Album Review - Qristina & Quinn Bachand / Little Hinges

Posted by Tony Lawless on January 27, 2015 at 16:30 0 Comments

There is a depth of inventiveness on Little Hinges by Qristina and Quinn Bachard that will raise their profile far beyond their Canadian homeland. Traditional tunes and songs are layered with an array of technical embellishments to give them a modern and funky setting. Artistically it excels by taking base material that…

There is an earthly purity to this release from Kelly Oliver that makes her a very exciting prospect indeed. The sharp clarity to the recording and delivery of the 11 tracks that make up the debut album called This Land make her one of the most refreshing vocal talents in some time.  The album has already been getting very positive reviews in the UK and on the…
