And now to the border-country of Cavan, a place I know and love well, having worked there for a few years back in the mists of time. We find 20-year-old singer/songwriter James Bentley releasing his first EP, and a pretty promising debut it is too. James has a warm, heartfelt voice and knows his way around a tune too. This is good, old-fashioned acoustic indie-folk and we like it a lot. Bumblebee is the highlight for me and we’ve added that to our Best of 2018.
James wrote “Right now I have about fifteen new tunes written for this project and plan on continuing forward by putting out much more music. All the songs are personal experiences and thoughts told through fictional stories I’ve written to project them.” Looking forward to hearing more.
