With his eco-conscious debut album ‘Silent Spring’, Henry Parker laid down a new sound for modern folk music, drawing deep from the well of the sixties and seventies revival. His style is a clear joining of the past and the present, a unique voice in the folk world that echoes with sounds of the tradition, whilst venturing beyond, into the realms of folk-rock and psych.
“Channelling the ghosts of Jansch and Renbourn through his fingertips, the fluid playing and emotive singing of Yorkshire-born Henry Parker evokes the spirit of the early-60’s folk revival as if it were yesterday.” – Silent Spring review RnR Magazine ★★★★★
David Ian Roberts takes inspiration from great acoustic guitarists such as Nick Drake Bert Jansch and Elliott Smith and brings in elements of classical and jazz music. His lyrical imagery finds parallels between our emotional landscapes and the natural world.
“Roberts is a superb guitarist but that’s not the limit to his talent” FolkRadioUK
“Poetry Jazz Folk… A fascinating voice” Frank Hennessey BBC Radio Wales
