Punk Folk

Californian solo artist, Beau James Wilding, put the grit in folk with his reverently fervid single, SET MYSELF ON FIRE

With the choppy discord in the acoustic guitar strings against his gravelly punk blues vocals, the Californian solo artist, Beau James Wilding, orchestrated a roots rock masterpiece with his latest single, SET MYSELF ON FIRE.

We didn’t need his bio to inform us of his intense emotional relationship with sound and music. But learning that the relationship was strengthened after he was left legally blinded by a disease at eighteen made the fierily ardent passion in SET MYSELF ON FIRE burn with even more reverence.

Any fans of Dogs D’Amour and The Quireboys won’t want this fervidly impactful single to pass them by. The dark poetic imagery in the lyrics paired with the frenetic pace of the guitar rhythms that consume the instrumental arrangement with their ragged timbre is a sobering multisensory experience that reaches the pinnacle of gritty folk.

SET MYSELF ON FIRE will officially release on January 13th. Stream it on SoundCloud.

Danny Osborne – Love at First Fight: Blue Collar Country Blues

Love at First Fight is the latest track from Danny Osborne which I couldn’t quite help falling in love with the anti-love story. The irony in that statement alone is brilliant.

Love at First Fight is a Billy Brag, Blue Collar styled Punk Folk acoustic melody which Osborne lent a heavy hand from Johnny Cash’s time old classic ‘A Boy Named Sue’ to create. His sense of humour shines through Love at First Fight remarkable iridescence through this enigmatic Indie Punk Folk medley, his level of humility will surely, transgress him from a humble underground artist into the sensation that he deserves to be. To create such a track and still command the respect of a serious artist is no easy endeavour, yet Danny Osborne smashed it. I’m excited to hear what the talented singer songwriter dreams up next!

I can’t recommend this track enough, so go check out Love at First Fight on SoundCloud using the link below:
