NEO&NEO

NEO&NEO is a brilliant indie folk band from Switzerland. Formed in 2015, they released in September 2016 their debut album "Before The Birds Start To Sing". The record is ambitious and full of surprises. It is relatable and refreshing. Read our interview with the band here.

REDDENING WEST

Reddening West is a four-piece alt-folk band based in Austin, TX. They released earlier this year a sublime Ep "Where We Started". Melodies that feel infinite, poetic, dark and relatable lyrics...not enough words to express how special their music is. Read the full interview with Matt Evans (1/4 of the band) here.

MICHAEL JAYSON

Michael Jayson is a singer/songwriter (and also an actor) living in New York City. His music is the perfect mix of pop, rock with hints of echo.

TOM SPEIGHT

If you have not yet come across Tom Speight's music, you are about to discover your next favourite artist. Tom Speight is an incredibly talented singer-songwriter from England. His music takes the best elements of folk and pop music. The result is a raw and infectiously good sound that sticks with you. Earlier this month, he released his EP Falling (which I have had on repeat ever since it came out). I had the chance to get to ask him a few questions about his new EP, touring experiences and his career so far. Read it here.

WAR WAVES

Ipswich based alternative rock band War Waves will release in October their second album, All That We Lack. They have recently released their new single, 'Horses', a head banging new song that will only leave you wanting more. I had the chance to get an interview with Marc Newby (singer/guitarist/songwriter) to talk about what we can expect from the new release (and other cool stuff...). Read the full interview here.

DAVID NEVORY

In May, David Nevory released independently a brand new EP, Light In The Shadows. My melancholic little heart is in heaven every time I give it a spin (read the review here). I had the chance (and honour) to get to ask David a few questions about his story and this new EP. Read the full interview here.

WYLDER

Wylder is an amazing indie-folk band based in Washington DC. Their music is a very unique mix of the best elements of pop and folk with an indie touch.

We talked about the history of the band and of this specific record. Read the interview.

CANYON CITY

Canyon City is Paul J. Johnson’s solo indie-folk project that he launched back in 2015. He has already released 3 excellent EPs (Flicker A Light, Refuge, Smoke & Ash). The melodies are acoustic-driven and simply gorgeous. I had the chance to get an interview with Paul at a very special time for him. Indeed, he is currently working on Canyon City’s first album! We chatted about music (his influences, inspirations), the different projects in which he's been involved (Silver Trees, Oh Gravity), and, of course, Canyon City. Read the full-length interview
