Acclaimed actor and musician Stuart Wolfenden is set to release their debut album Songs From a Common Man. Anyone who prefers their Folk on the Alternative side and with a side serving of mesmerism is going to want to pay attention.
Alt Folk musicians aren’t commonly renowned for their captivating vocals, but with the release of Stuart Wolfenden’s album, that may all be set to change. While we’re sure that each of the singles is just as transfixing as the last, we were only lucky enough to get a sneak peek of their single “One Last Time”. Hit play, and you’ll find yourself imagining what it would sound like if Robbie Williams, Tom Waits and The Babe Rainbow collaborated. With a funky and Psychedelically Eastern feel to the instrumentals, One Last Time broke the monocultural mould which usually constraints Western Folk artists. It is never hyperbole when we say you’ve never heard anything like this before, but with One Last Time, that statement has never been truer.
