I keep hearing indie folk singers with similar voices, and I can't work out who it is they all remind me of. Passenger, Joshua James, Brett Dennen, Cairan Lavery, maybe even Jake Bugg a bit.

Anyone have any idea who it is these singers all sound a little bit like?

Thanks

Jak

Well I for one am not going to risk listening to them in order to be able to venture an opinion.

I checked out Brett Dennen and the guy sounds like a complete pussy...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTh4NaIJgrE

What the fuck is that!? That's not 'folk'. It sounds like music from a montage on 'Friends' where the generic gang go hiking or something.

"I'm a Wild Child, Mama", err nah, you're a company pop stooge with an urban outfitters wardrobe and a lyric book stolen from Bon Jovi, you fraud.

I could imagine it used in a 90's commercial for tampons where the 'babes' go to the beach and go rollerblading despite their periods, except it's 20 years too late for that and the only period in the video is Brett Dennen himself.

Awful. Makes Jake Bugg sound as talented as a young Dylan, which is quite an achievement.

Have you ever watched Adam Buxton's "Bug", He Who Hears Horses?

I haven't, Jak, although I used to love the 'Adam and Joe Show' or whatever it was called back when in the day.

I think Jose has pretty much nailed this one. Why would you write a song like that and then stick such inappropriate lyrics over it. Still 365000 views shows his pluggers are doing a decent job...
