After witnessing him with my own eyes last week, here is a live version of ‘Liquid Spirit’ and ‘Hey Laura’ that he did a couple years back. Will give you an idea of just how good him and his band area.
I first heard J.Tillmans voice when he was part of Fleet Foxes, playing drums was his main focus point whilst dabbling in backing vocals. Father John Misty was then created and he has shown his true talent. Here he has turned a distinctly average tune into something spectacular, not only is his voice orgasmic but he reeks charm, elegance and damn right sexyness. I am lucky enough to be seeing this man in May in London, to say I’m excited is an understatement. If you haven’t listened to his two albums yet I suggest you stop what you’re doing and go and treat yourself to something magical. Here is his cover of ‘The Suburbs’ by Arcade Fire.
Lead singer, Ella Giradot, really does things with her voice. Just wow. And my main man Hamish Barnes doing his thing on the keys and backing vocals. With their second album out 20th May heres a taster of their raw talent.
Not the first time i’ve mentioned this extremely talented 4 piece. Here is an acoustic version of their song ‘Grand Union’.
Hunter & The Bear are an extremely talented 4 piece band. Playing various festivals and gigs last year they have matured in a fantastic folk band and this summer they’re supporting the one and only Eric Clapton. Check out this live acoustic version of their song ‘The North’.
A 6 piece led by the amazing and ever so talented singer/songwriter ‘Tim Baker’. Here they did a session with WLT a couple of years back. With a compilation of various instruments ranging from Cello’s to tambourines, Hey Rosetta bring you a wonderful version of ‘Young Glass’.
Hailing from London, this very talented young singer does a one off acoustic session for Sofar London a couple months back. With strong influence’s from The Temptations and Ray Charles, Jake has matured into a fantastic singer/songwriter and quite simply reeks of soul and passion.
