"SONGS & WHISPERS" - LABELARTISTS 


  


“A unique talent”
Roger O’ Donnell, The Cure

    
“A musical poet. RECOMMENDED.”  
London TimeOut








Aireene Espiritu (USA)
Aireene Espiritu (USA)




"Aireene's songs are mostly originals. They just sound like songs Alan Corney might have collected during one of his cross country recording jaunts. They carry both historic sweep and personal nuance. The melodies are full of bluesy longing, fingerpicked delicately on her tenor ukulele."
Richard Rice, San Francisco Free Folk
Festival


 



Alexander McKenzie & The Underpaid (CAN) 
Alexander McKenzie & The Underpaid (CAN)




"pure, finespun beauty... McKenzie has a pair of vocal cords that make you believe and feel every word, every sigh, and every crescendo."
OOR magazine







Axel Kruse (D)




“His songs are arranged as litarary works and have a really philosophical claim...There are touchingly sad songs, where the chest voice clings on the in arpeggio played chords...Depending on themes and contents he is changing his style of singing from reserved to explosive...“ - Weser Kurier






A Seated Craft (AUS)




 "Her music weaves narrative folk with well-tempered indie-sensibility; she linkes handmade arrangements with dreamy wordplay and a warm, soft and clear voice."
Wunderland-Festival












"I enjoy Bobbo's music very much, it's much better now than when he lived with me."
- Bobbo's Mother







Buzzard Lope (UK)
Buzzard Lope (UK)





"A dark, formidable records" London In Stereo


"ballsy"
The Left Over Sessions





Daisy Chapman (UK) 
Daisy Chapman (UK)

"Watch this woman, she'll go far"
BBC Introducing

"A sparkling gem of a discovery amongst a myriad of Singer-Songwriter Albums, and one that shines btighter than almost all others" 
Metal Discovery 







Echo Bloom (USA)
Echo Bloom (USA)


 “The title track is a hypnotic and emotional piece of work that soars as much for the composition as a whole as well as the restraint shown by Evans and company vocally. I struggle to compare Evans to another singer vocally - and struggle even more to compare the songwriting to any of his contemporaries. And I think that’s what I like the most about Blue.”
Heidi Drockelman - Indie-Music.com






Fast Heart Mart (USA)
Fast Heart Mart (USA)




"Albuquerque's most famed, most loved, most artistically edgy street music phenomenon!" - Bill Nevins, Albuquerque Arts Magazine






Hanna Fearns (UK/D)
Hanna Fearns (UK/D)




"Hanna Fearns is a singing poet..." - Feedback 


 

"...it's music for the stranded, lost souls out there that are still full of hope..."  - Carsten Agthe, Cabinet Nightflight






Howlin Lord (UK)

Americana UK
"This could be the best Album of 2011"
Maverick Magazine






Ingrid Veerman (Belgien) 
Ingrid Veerman (BE)




 “Dichter bij het ware troubadoursbestaan kan je niet   geraken en het levert in het geval van Ingrid Veerman nog een verzameling bijzonder fraai songwerk op.”
English: Closer to the troubadour existence you can't get, and in this case it also provides a collection of very beautiful songs.”
(Cis Van Looy, Keys and Chords, 2014)







Johnny Parry (UK)
Johnny Parry (UK)



"Johnny Parry vaults his way from being just another singer-songwriter to something more akin to the UK's equivalent of Sufjan Stevens, an artist with a distinctive musical vision." 
The Independent






Joyce The Librarian (UK)
Joyce The Librarian (UK)




"Joyce The Librarian are Awesome"
Simon Raymonde 
Amazing Radio/ Bella Union
"...this is a bold debut that will find favour in both indie and traditional music circles, making a pitch for the narrow territary between, say, Laura Marling, Noah&The Whale and the godfathers of it all, Belle&Sebastian." 
Nick Churchill, FATEA  







'It is easily the case here, as Kaurna Cronin’s warm voice works soft and haunting folk songs as well as happier breezier folk-rockers. His is a light touch, but there is plenty of strength underneath with the band or his acoustic guitar picking.' -  David Hintz (folkworld.eu)







King Of The Tramps (USA)



"On a scale of one to ten the Joyful Noise album is a solid ten. These five talented musicians not only know the roots of rock and roll, they enrich them every time they get together and play and believe me THAT is a joyful experience to be sure."

- Cveckian, The Bigfoot Diaries




Nico Rivers (USA)   
Nico Rivers (USA)   

 "Blurring the lines between indie rock and folk, Boston singer/songwriter Nico Rivers exudes a raw passion through his music." - Rob Duguay - Vanyaland (2017)
 
 







Norman (USA)   
Norman (USA)



“Into the Eventyr” is full of hearty, harmony-filled rock in the spirit of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Matthew Sweet, but the edgy “Hawk,” the band’s synth-lined new single, may be the beer’s best match.”
The Oregonian
“Give a listen to this relaxing twangy tune. It’ll make you forget you live in the big city.”
KZME






ODi (IRL)
ODi (IRL)


 “If Maslow's Songbook was Sarah McLachlan's new release it would be hailed as her second coming"...
Get Ready To Rock! (5/5)
 

"A really lovely record" ...  
Bob Harris (BBC Radio 2)






Palodine (US)
Palodine (US)





Think of Palodine as the sonic equivalent of a Cormac McCarthy novel: a bewitching, unsettling combination of beauty and darkness; a place where gloriously ominous storm clouds are always on the horizon and terror lurks in beautiful shadows.”
Barbara Mitchell - Seattle Sound Magazine







Peter Crawford (UK)
Peter Crawford (UK)



 "...a musician with a fantastically powerful and soulful voice."
Paul Barnes, Electric Harmony

"...a great new talent..."
Vince Freeman
(BBC1's The Voice UK 2012)






Richie Ros (IRL)
Richie Ros (IRL)



“I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Richie Ros on my long running Solid Gold show on Portugal's Kiss FM. Richie Ros performed live on spec and the feedback has been brilliant. Such comment as “this guy is something special” “What chord sequences” and “touching lyrics”. Totally complementary of this ultra talented man.” - Sir Owen Gee – Kiss FM PortugalI




 







Riddle& The Stars(AUS/USA)
Riddle& The Stars(AUS/USA)



"Mixing Ben Riddle and The Fallen Stars is like mixing Nick Drake and The Clash.  You wish for it every night in bed until it comes true."
Rami Jaffee (Grammy winning keyboardist for The Foo Fighters and Wallflowers among others)

 






 Rivers of England (UK)
Rivers of England (UK)

Chris Vaudin


"...there is something quite wholesome, refined and altogether rather sweet about this music and the vocals are completely lovely."  
Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition 2013 judge






Robert Sarazin Blake ( USA)
Robert Sarazin Blake (USA)




“Blake being a master of stage presence and completely at ease, he was capable of bringing the crowd to a complete silence. His ability to make a story out of a moment, a moment every audience member is a part of no less, is the one of the best forms of concert entertainment I’ve ever experienced.”
- Jess, Sunsetintherearview.com








Roger Tarry (UK)
Roger Tarry (UK)


"If sublime folk-inspired music is for you, this album will not disappoint."
Michael Farley
AMERICANA UK
"Roger’s own distinctive vision, peaceful overall and yet with darker overtones, is accurately conveyed in his fragile and poignantly expressive music on this treasurable disc.”
David Kidman, FATEA Magazine






Rosy Daze (D)
Rosy Daze (D)


„Die Musik des Duos erinnert mit ihren englischsprachigen Texten und eingängigen Melodien an die Musik von Indiebands wie „The Shins“ oder „Mumford & Sons“. Die Lieder sind melancholisch, hoffend und sehnsüchtig, sagen Lebewohl oder feiern das Leben.“Nordwest-Zeitung, 21.05.2013









Simon Hudson (AUS)
Simon Hudson (AUS)


It's good to know that there's so much great music being produced by local, independent bands as SHB. Keep it coming!

"come in, Someday Jacob: in the house of the Kings of Convenience is next to Sufjan Stevens, insiders' tpis like Motion Pictures an Montana still enough place for you!"
Ozelot






Southern Tenant Folk Union (UK)
Southern Tenant Folk Union (UK)


"raw and earthy music that is the stuff of Mumford & Sons' dreams. Frontman Pat McGarvey's banjo butts against blunt bass notes or nicks at the fiddle's drone, and the results are as compelling as they are oppressively bleak." 
The Guardian






The Cedar (UK)
The Cedar (UK)



  "Ambidextrous arrangements, great dynamic swoops,familial banter and a veritable Womad of instruments,
….the lasting impression is one of a quite wonderful and sumptuous performance. "
The Fly magazine








The Epstein (UK)
The Epstein (UK)




"Excellent….This charming slow-builder rides a bed of plucked acoustics as it heads into string-section ecstasy, throwing a few dramatic chord changes into the mix as it climaxes."
Artrocker Magazine – UK
"The realisation of years of promise. It constitutes a fantastic body of work, with light and dark woven together through intricate skill."
BBC Oxford, UK.







The Fallen Stars ( USA)

The Fallen Stars ( USA)




"Somewhere between the wide-open stretches of Gram Parson's beloved Mojave Desert and the decaying cityscapes frequented by Bruce Springsteen shine the Fallen Stars." 
 The Orange County Register








 The Monotrol Kid (BE)

The Monotrol Kid (BE)




 "...extremely well written to brilliant songs, which get better each time you listen to them."
Musicologen

"Music in its purest form. Melancholic songs with a warm sound."

Rif Raf

"SONGS & WHISPERS" - Artists we'd like to mention here for some reason

Chris Letcher (ZA/UK)
Chris Letcher (ZA/UK)



“Letcher has created a world that feels somehow more real than the one we’re living in, and when the album is over, our own world doesn’t feel quite the same.”
Etan Rosenbloom, Prefix Mag
