Now if you’re looking for an artist to listen too, be sure to make it Wilson Blackley. Recently dropping his latest single ‘Heart Reception’, it’s one not to miss. In his words he made it to ‘’try and lift people up in this time of chaos’’ and it certainly couldn’t have come at a better time.
Wilson has an insane vocal range, the tone is in a rather modulated style, it’s rather shrill in places but the roughness that he has to his tone makes hitting them high notes that bit easier. He portrays his talent throughout whether that’s on the guitar or the tone of voice, every part of this track has this reason to make you feel good.
As soon as you listen, your mood is instantly boosted with the pure lively energy that is injected into it, with the plucks on the guitar strings and the rather incredible guitar solos that have been added, whilst adding in this loud hard strum on strings as the volume gets louder and the rather infectious feeling fills the air.
Wilson Blackley has created a song that this year needed, after all the dreadful things we’ve been going through this is just that pick me up that we all need to delve into.

Review by Karley Myall
This one’s for the Indie Folk lovers. Lake Folks is a solo act from a visionary talent revelling in his talent which is allowing him to dominate the folk scene. To describe his new debut track ‘The Old Man and The Lake’ as a serendipitous wonder would be an understatement.
The solo artists sound is a unique, intoxicating blend of pop & a tranquil taste of indie folk. It’s impossible not to get caught up in the lucid angelic melodies which invoke a serene melodic transcendence. The music is teaming with plaintive inspiration which they find in their dulcet home town of Aix -les-Bains and notable acts such as Bon Iver, Paul Simon and Jeff Buckley. The Old Man and The Lake is steeped in sincerity, entwined with acoustic splendour.
There’s some elemental darkness to Lake Folks tracks, their latest track in particular, which makes their latest hit a true testament to the harrowing times that the world is lingering in. The lyrics are steeped in bittersweet sorrow, their music is delectably easy to swallow thanks to the angelic upbeat jingle of the guitar combined with the inventive use of instruments.
