Joyce the Librarian are a new folk/acoustic ensemble from Bristol lead by singer-songwriter Martin Callingham. Their music is soft and understated and disarmingly beautiful in its simplicity.
Reactions to the album so far:
– Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
“Joyce the Librarian are awesome.”
– Simon Raymonde, Amazing Radio/Bella Union
“This is a high quality debut album… well worth the listen.”
– Michael Farley, Americana UK
“…this is a bold debut that will find favour in both indie and traditional music circles, making a pitch for the narrow territory between, say, Laura Marling, Noah & the Whale and the godfathers of it all, Belle & Sebastian.”
– Nick Churchill, FATEA
“Expect big things from this band with an impressive debut like this one.”
– Jason Ritchie, Get Ready To Rock
“…a distinctive and original-sounding take on the folk-pop genre…definitely worth a listen.”
– Gethin Webster, Artree.org.
“The single and ‘Land’, the title track, both grabbed my attention immediately as did ‘Turn Yourself In’ and ‘Over Dinmore’ and that, for me, is a high strike rate. Joyce The Librarian are following a path of their own and it will be fascinating to see where it takes them.”
– Dai Jeffries, Folking.com
