If ever an artist called on the elements in her songwriting, it’s Megan Henwood. The distinguished English singer-songwriter is far too self-deprecating to describe herself as a force of nature, but her third album ‘River’ reaffirms her unique ability to create roots music of beguiling purity from what’s around her.
“Henwood’s debut announced her as a promising new voice on the contemporary English folk scene; “Head Heart Hand “confirms her as one of its finest exponents” Folk Radio UK
“A powerful set of songs boasting the finest lyrics this reviewer has heard in a while” Album of the Week Sunday Express
“Raw nerves are constantly prodded – She has moved far beyond (Folk’s) parameters into a world where anything is possible” R2 Magazine
“She hones her songs so beautifully and the production is superbly judged” Country Music People: Americana
One of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene Findlay Napier is an insurgent talent that comes on like a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright. Distilled to artful acoustic guitar and Napier’s remarkable voice his most recent album ‘Glasgow’ captures the timeless essence of one of the world’s great cities.
“…one of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene.” Folk Radio UK
After his debut release V.I.P.: Very Interesting Persons I wondered how he could possibly surpass such a start, with “Glasgow” the master craftsman just gets better. FATEA Magazine
“Napier’s epically muscular, grittily raw yet brilliantly nuanced voice, to both comic and emotive effect, allies with some of the most fabulous (literally and figuratively) original songs that anyone’s writing today.” Folk Radio UK: Live Review
