Riverfolk is an album with it's roots springing from the Irish town of Athy, but whose branches touch every corner of the world. From the opening track ‘Down at Joe’s’ to the final track ‘Concerning Lily Moreau’ there is a strong presence on this album of the hauntingly sad character of Lily Moreau, who met an untimely end in ‘Dark Water’. Mixed with a collection of blues and soulful ballads, this new album will certainly appeal to anyone who has a feeling for the blues and an appetite for some fresh melodies and lyrics from a truly talented Irish songwriter.
Reviews on the first track from this album:
I don't care about 'her' voice--- yours is the one that moves me...your voice is like water...it flows with the beat like rushing waves...The more that your music gets into the depths of reality and people's lives the more it comes alive..explore that Jim; because that is where the magic is for you...when you jump into others' skin and become the wave ....Courtney Varnes
