At the age of 21 Jim Moray was hailed “…the greatest leap forward in folk for 30 years” (The Daily Telegraph). Amongst other extravagant claims, his debut album ‘Sweet England’ was called “the most significant new development in English folk music since Fairport Convention's Liege and Leif.” (Uncut) and “a revolutionary experience” (HMV Choice). Critics worldwide fell over themselves to tip Moray for great things and after a gap of 5 years Moray has stunned the press again with Low Culture, an album that brings the folk tradition into the 21st Century.
With his laptop and electric guitar Jim Moray helped transform the British folk revival…he’s no longer on his own out there but is singing better than ever and [he] can still surprise.
Mary Hampton has been propelled into the limelight after several years fine tuning her craft of exquisitely fragile vocals and incisive song-writing. Her debut album has been unanimously praised across the media, from Mojo to Songlines.
Coffee-table-shattering purity… these are songs of unnerving delicacy, elemental and acoustic simplicity… potent and enchanting ****
