YOU KISS BY THE BOOK


http://www.myspace.com/youkissbythebook

“a lovely laid back sombre collection of rustic country tinged folk sounds reminscent of the likes of smog or bonnie prince billy at times… a lovely blend of traditional classic country folk and more modern indie folk sounds, complete with some classic slide guitar action.” Road Records: http://www.roadrecs.com/


TRAZ

http://www.youtube.com/TrazMusic

“One of those excitingly wide-eyed, wide-eared, discovery moments of loveliness, totally restored my faith in the music coming down the line, not that it was all that lacking to be honest: there are plenty of talented kids about, but to see a group so young and so evolved is heartening. Traz are a group of transition year students from Dublin… heavily alt folk inspired… add some stunning choir style voices, a dollop of low sax and a love of the fiddle and you get a very irish take on americana alt folk.” Stranded: http://stranded.ie/2009/10/19/transfixed-by-traz/


SONIA MARIA RAVEN (SWI)

A very talented Dublin-based songwriter from Switzerland, sadly still floating below the radar outside of the open-mic scene. A captivating voice over classical guitar, generating a sound that moves between haunting and melancholic.

This was a great night, about 70 people payed in so it was jammers but comfortable enough in the room once everyone squeezed in. The two major highlights of the night for me were...

Traz, who were very impressive. They are extremely competent musicians and really do make you question (if you're a musician) whether you should just pack it in now and let these young people take over.

Sonia Maria Raven was also excellent. It was only in conversation with her afterward that we discovered that she has been singing and making up songs for around 20 years but has only started to perform them live over the past two years and very much regrets not having started doing it all that time ago, so let that be a warning to all you bedroom songwriters and music/noise makers!!! She's is going into a recording studio for the first time this week so I'm really looking forward to hearing how that turns out.

Thanks to all the people who came down on the night and hopefully we'll be having another at the end of this month before a brief hiatus over the summer.
