Daphne Michelle proves folk knows no bounds

It might seem odd that someone making music in the sun-kissed climes of Miami should sound like timeless English pastoral folk, but you could easily be forgiven for thinking that Daphne Michelles wonderful Save me is the product of rural Oxfordshire at the time of the 60’s folk revival. Thankfully the world is a more integrated and fluid place these days and influences cross time and tide, borders and boundaries with ease and glorious and intimate acoustic folk being made in a place more associated with party music and urban vibes.

And Save Me is nothing less than a glorious folk song, the vocals both emotive and imploring, the music delicate and detailed, the perfect ballad delivered with heart tugging accuracy and no small hint of drama. Any song which can exist in the modern world whilst simultaneously reminiscing on the genres wonderful past has its future assured.
