Simple Folk Radio is back this week, and they’re back in style with Devon Sproule in Session! The show is presented by monthly resident host DANIEL GREEN (LAISH) plus studio guest NICK HEMMING (THE LEISURE SOCIETY)
One night back in October the stars aligned, Devon Sproule and her band stood on the cusp of finishing what had been a critically acclaimed world tour; they had one last night in the UK, no more concerts booked, and the itch to play on. This weeks episode of Simple Folk Radio brings you something very special, a band at the height of their game, perfectly in tune with one another after performing night after night on stages the world, and in session for a good half hour.
Perhaps the sweetest and most honest folk-pop album recorded this year. Sproule’s vocal and lyrical beauty is unmatched
Infectious Appalachian stomp with jazz shadings. Sproule’s voice is an elastic instrument of old-school soul, recalling anyone from Sara Carter to Patsy Cline
Daniel Green & Nick Hemming
Presented by monthly resident host and Laish front man Daniel Green (Read our recent interview), with special studio guest Nick Hemming, singer and songwriter from the Ivor Novella-nominated band, and all round folk superstars, The Leisure Society.
The Leisure Society have released two tremendous albums of joyful orchestral folk pop on Full Time Hobby Records, toured all over Europe and played every festival worth playing, even supporting Laura Marling on a tour of UK Cathedrals. We are very intrigued to hear Nick’s musical selections. This is shaping up to be quite a show.
