- Bath Folk Festival
Young Water’s (previously Snufkin) twisted neo-folk is a tapestry of emotionally powerful vocals, stirring harmonies, lyrical violin solos and finely mastered acoustic guitar. Their exhilarating rhythms and intricate, weaving melodies, coupled with a repertoire that combines startling original material with traditional folk songs, makes for a captivating stage presence. This young band are set to make a big impact in 2017.
They burst onto the London / Bristol folk scene in 2015 and have been making a name for themselves with their live album, ‘Live from The Fayre’ (recorded live at Rollright Fayre). Following a host of festival appearances in 2016 (including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Boomtown and Smugglers) they have built a strong following. They rounded off the summer by winning Bath Folk Festival’s New Shoots competition, earning themselves a recording session at Peter Gabriel’s legendary Real World Studios and a prestigious headline slot at the 2017 Bath Folk Festival.
Young Waters is a five-piece band led by Theo Passingham (vocals and guitar) with Kerry Ann Jangle (vocals and percussion), Liam O’Connell (double bass and vocals), Calum Smith (violin) and Rowen Elliot (viola).
WE SINGING COLORS
We Singing Colors is an indie-pop band from Bucharest, Romania.
In April 2014, the first album “Made of wool, made of heavy metal” was launched. The album has 11 songs and it starts and ends with the same song – Daydreams. You get “inside the story” with Roxana’s voice and leave with Andrei’s.
They played all over Romania, as well as in the Republic of Moldova, Bulgaria, Spain and India. The band is always experimenting new places to sing: from the taxi’s intimacy (“Day for my eyes” was firstly played in a cab) to the Festival Scenes (Peninsula, Street Delivery, Short’s Up and many others).
Some of their best known songs have been featured on international music compilation (Music Alliance Pact): “Cântec de seară” and “There when you sleep”. Other songs entered the playlists of independent radios from Canada and USA (“Moscow” and “Good Days”).
“Good Days, Bad Days” and “Far, far, far” were featured in 2 national commercial, the first being even nominated in a Musical Gala - On Air Music Awards.
From 2010 to this day, 26-year-old Raoul Vignal has been playing authentic, modern folk music.
Forming the essence of his compositions, soothing vocals and delicate fingerpicking played on alternate tunings are Vignal’s trademark. His music has often been described by audience as “evocative” and “mesmerising”.
Shortly after the birth of his solo project at the age of 20, Raoul Vignal started performing live in venues and festivals throughout France, giving him a strong stage experience as a solo musician, whether playing for a small audience in intimate venues or captivating a larger crowd.
In 2013, he left his hometown Lyon for a 2-year-long stay in Berlin, where he has been very active in the singer / songwriter scene, frequently performing in the numerous venues the city has to offer.
After the release of his third EP in November 2014, recorded at Klangbird Studios (Berlin), Raoul Vignal composed the following year the original soundtrack to ‘Sweet Water of Memory’, a German-produced movie directed by Carlos Vin Lopes.
Recorded late 2015 at Klangbild Studios in Berlin, with sound engineer Martin J. Fielder, “The Silver Veil” is Raoul Vignal’s debut full-length. The 10 tracks featured on the LP demonstrate an intense acoustic style, carried by pared-down arrangements, with a slight nostalgic touch.
Now back in Lyon, France, since 2016, the young musician is accompanied by a drummer and a double bass player: a trio formula which gives the repertoire a fuller and deeper sound.
“The Silver Veil” was released via Talitres on 7 april 2017.
