I feel like Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance has been the quiet achiever of the folk scene in recent years. But with the release of his latest album The Wild Swan, the massive success of its lead single “She Burns” and his association with Ed Sheran, Foy Vance is finally getting the recognition he deserves. The Wild Swan is a melting pot of tone and style – anyone expecting 12 songs all like “She Burns” might be a bit shocked with the blues of “Noam Chomsky is a Soft Revolution” or the Bryan-Adams-like balladry of “Ziggy Looked Me In The Eye”. This is an album that deserves to be listened to from start to finish.

Live acoustic version of “She Burns,” a new song Foy is recording in the studio for his upcoming album.The Wild Swan. Recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN.

Irish singer songwriter Wallis Bird has just released her fourth album titled “Architect” recently moving to Berlin it has changed her sound to a more beat influence but after playing some huge festivals worldwide maybe this song will bring her to mass attention. Her guitar playing is exceptional playing the guitar flipped so to speak it creates an unusual style http://www.wallisbird.com
