Two new kids on the Folk block who draw on a range of influences to create exciting music in an honest, straightforward, compelling way.
"Greg Russell plays an sings with a maturity and emotion that belies his tender years. It is so rare to find new performers who have the confidence to play with this delicacy of touch and yet to sing in such a heartfelt way. He will, I think, go far". These comments by BBC Radio 2's Mark Radcliffe give a very accurate summary of 19 year old Greg.
In these days when so many young singers are trying too hard to be different, to come up with something distinctive, it comes like a breath of fresh air to discover Greg Russell who just seems to sing for the hell of it in a very natural way. He is not afraid to tackle traditional songs, songs by a variety of writers and even pen some himself without feeling the need to keep one eye on what critics or those who vote in awards might think. There's a straightforward honesty about the way this young man approaches his work which is appealing.
The power and conviction in his delivery is compelling and his teaming up with someone so formidably talented as 16 year old Ciaran bodes well for the future. They combine to provide an accomplished stage presence and come across as likeable performers which translated into the studio setting. Ciaran Algar is a member of the Young Folk Award semi finalist band Tri. Together they draw on a range of influences to create exciting music both with energy and also with delicate feeling.
