    Loch Lights by Jamie Flett

    Maturing Talent

    “Loch Lights” is another wistful song from Glasgow’s Jamie Flett with his deep folk influences again much to the fore. The musicianship meanders but Mr Flett’s voice remains steadfastly on course for the duration of this song.

    Be U by Susana Silva

    Moving on up

    Confident of voice, Susana Silva uses the lyrics of “Be U” to stand tall in the downtown of her contemporaries and, despite a somewhat awkward backing track, her voice shines just as one polished to a purpose should.

    Up In Smoke by The Hurt Project

    True to the past

    It may be old school but there is always something to savour in any faithful rendition of the blues style and The Hurt Project, with their song “Up In Smoke”, give us the heartfelt yet still poised vocals of Jasmin Lloyd. There may be twelve bars until dawn but she’ll stay with you all the way. Guaranteed.

    Fickle Heart by Ira Wolf

    Wholesome

    Blessed with an endearingly fragile voice, Ira Wolf takes the cultural purity of folk music and mixes it with Nashville cleanliness yet she still manages to infuse “Fickle Heart” with something deeper, almost as if a transitory sadness of her soul had been captured in words and music. An affecting song.

    Cruel Hard World by Mudcat Blues Trio

    British bluesmen

    “Cruel Hard World” is, as you might imagine given the title, a redemption song in the classic twelve bar style with motive power provided by the kind of dirty guitar that gives the blues a good name. No surprises therefore but the spirit is undoubtedly strong in this band.

    Sussh by Luna Green

    Swedish style

    Almost irritatingly catchy in its simplicity, “Sussh” has Luna Green stripping it back to the basics and, with her cleverly underplayed vocals adding charm aplenty, the proof is provided that keeping it simple works. Or, rather, that it works for her.
