Tyneside-based folk artist Warrilow showcases a promising new talent with the release of his debut EP this month. Possessed of a stunning voice and a beguiling nature, the subtle nuances and intricate melodies of his Chief EP set him apart from the standard folky troubadour. The Gallery’s jaunty guitar and Rhys’ (for that is what his mother calls him) lush multi-tracked harmonies combine to produce a track that’s both catchy and complex; while XXII’s charging rhythms and the pretty Rope Bridge offer different sides to the self-described ‘ghost-folk’ record. With just enough idiosyncrasies to charm, Warrilow celebrate the release of the EP at Tynemouth’s quirky Surf Café on Friday 15th May supporting Lilliput and Eva Stone.

Citing Chief as a “dedication to forgotten, battered and broken tractors in the corner of a forest, to time spent gazing at rocks overturned by ancestors and to any lives cornered and wasted by media-taught convention”, Warrilow’s classic folk approach mixed with a contemporary alternative abandon contributes to making his music really rather special indeed.

Warrilow releases the Chief EP on 24th May and plays Surf Café, Tynemouth on Friday 15th May.
