|About The Artists|
|Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates
We are delighted that Gare Du Nord recording artists Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates will be making their debut at the Country Soul. Based in Birmingham Matthew and his band have been musically described as 'folk-pop noir'' with a lyrical bent that "recalls Kevin Ayers; all wry wit and melancholy" (Uncut). Their brand new long player 'Folklore' (Gare Du Nord) has been released to much acclaim. The LP itself is a musical happening where folk, mingles with stripped back pop and melodic hooks are shaped into a melancholy beauty.
|Rapid Results College
We are extremely pleased that Rapid College Results will also be debuting at the November Country Soul. Playing guitar based pop tunes RRC have a darker sound than their previous Hillfields incarnation. Their Gare Du Nord debut 'In City Light' was regarded as one of the best releases last year by Penny Black Music who described the LP as "a beautiful and subtle record". Poetic about modern City life, with tongue placed firmly in cheek, and musical influences ranging from XTC, Pavement, Scritti Politti and label pals Rotifer. Rapid College Results display a fine lyrical and musical sensibility.
|Drew Morrison and the Darkwood
House band Drew Morrison and the Darkwood will of course be in support mode to our guest artists. With a long overdue long player on the horizon after the release last year of their EP 'Tales Of Love, Sadness & Rock 'N' Roll' the band are finally looking towards the fiery musical heavens.
