It’s Never Too Late for Jakob Kupferberg

Folky strummed guitar, strident violin, and a pushing, driving bassline offset Jakob Kupferberg’s new single ‘Never Too Late For Love’, an assured, mature folk-rock song that showcases Kupferberg’s vocal styling and guitar skills.

Vulnerable and emotional and yet strong and powerful, Danish-born Kupferberg references artists as diverse as Zach De La Rocha and Jeff Buckley, and this comes across in his music, the track switching easily from comfortable, familiar chord progressions to mildly startling, divergent codas and back again, intriguing and challenging but never, ever discordant.

Kupferberg’s debut EP, ‘Sweet Surrender’, is out on October 9th; ‘It’s Never Too Late For Love’ is on Spotify now.

Lake Folks – The Old Man and The Lake: Sonorous Simplistic Sound at Its Finest.

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.

A&R Factory Present: Luke De-Sciscio

Home movies show him at three years old singing ‘boo-boo-bah-loo’ over Louis Armstrong records under the nurturing watch of his grandfather, John.

Himself, a music junkie and keen guitarist, it was to emulate John and follow in those loving steps that Luke De-Sciscio took to music and hungered to learn guitar. Those early years, playing the blues with his grandfather, sank their teeth deep into Luke’s soul. The seed was sewn.

He had dabbled in bands throughout school; exploring Funk, Rock and Blues though it wasn’t until spending several years living on a boat in the English countryside that he began to find his own voice – stripped back, unguarded and delicate.

Debut LP “Gossamer Rose” was recorded live over the course of one evening with a few good friends over a few bad beers – its raw honesty invites the listener into that night to share in the stories told.

Universally personal and cutting with truth, ‘Gossamer Rose’ has been praised for its intricate guitar work and described as “a haunting example of the beauty of the folk genre.”
