NEW MUSIC PROFILE - AMERICANA COUNTRY BAND "LITTLE FOLK"
Little Folk are a four piece Americana Country band from South Wales comprising of Dewi Bowen (guitar/vocals), Lucy Hannah (vocals), Marc Bowen (banjo) and Niall Rees (bass). They had a blistering year last year gaining local critical acclaim and a blossoming fan base.
The band had airplay on various UK radio stations and also in Nashville. Although they are an Americana band there are strong of elements of Folk and Country intertwined with sweet melodies and harmonies. They were invited to play at RHS Flower Show and Extreme Sailing Series. Their reputation growing from inside Wales they have also played in London at The Water Rats venue.
In 2016 they released their debut 4 track E.P. last year entitled, "Litte Folk Volume 1". The tracks are bright and breezy and Country tinted to give that "may be sad but feeling positive" vibe that many Country crossover songs have these days.
"Music City" off the E.P. is the most Pop style track with great lyrics, laid back vocals and accomplished musicianship throughout. My favourite track has to be "Eleanor", it is has an unusual bare bones feel and stop-start backing music before the very catchy chorus. Keep your eyes open for Little Folk as I think they may soon be BIG folk!They have released a handful of singles including "Big Bad Wolf" and "The Smoke".
