Our Song of the Day is from Australian born, Bristol based, Nuala Honan. ‘On an Island‘ is taken from Nuala’s debut album The Tortoise which was released last year.
Thomas, who reviewed The Tortoise for Folk Radio UK last year, said of the album:
Nuala Honan has nailed it with The Tortoise. It is rare to hear a debut album as mature-sounding as this. At first listen, Honan sits firmly on the country side of the fence, but the material is only country in the same way that Sandy Denny’s songs were folk. The genre acts as a platform for the songwriting. All the right musical boxes are ticked, but more important is the innate lightness of touch that can create tender ballads one moment and playful, fiddle-led hoedowns the next. Full Review Here
