US Folk

Folk singer-songwriter Holloway James showed us the beauty in candour with ‘Seven Come Eleven’.

US folk singer-songwriter, Holloway James, has never been one to evade candour. Yet, his latest cinematic single, Seven Come Eleven, artfully takes the listener on a journey from fear of living to enlightenment in a way that allows you to appreciate the precariousness of our consciousness.

Seven Come Eleven paid homage to the storytelling roots of folk by weaving an unfiltered tale of new beginnings after scapegoating the self-awareness that attempted to shine a light on an inability to find love internally. His alt-country vocals and accordantly melodic instrumentals pull together to paint a panoramic picture of triumph over self-inflicted adversity. We would need a concussion to forget it.

Seven Come Eleven was officially released on January 7th; it is available to stream via this link.

Salmon Run have released their chorally accordant country folk single, ‘She’s Alright’

With their latest single, ‘She’s Alright’, Appleton, WI-residing duo Salmon Run played with roots of country-folk while giving the production a chorally enticing contemporary feel.

The lyrics are sentimental and heartfelt enough for you to become personally enamoured with the object of affection which the accordant single gently introduces, reminding you well and truly that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that, for the most part, thankfully, it lies in idiosyncrasies.

It’s a stunning single to hand over your emotions and rhythmic pulses to. Any fans of contemporary folk acts such as Bonny Light Horseman will appreciate this quiescent journey of romantic adoration.

The official video to She’s Alright is now available to stream via YouTube.
