🎼Folks and Strokes Music Review.🎶

Updated: Jan 5

Hi there my Folkloire's.

For years I had seen a real struggle for the musical artist who stayed away from the main stream side of music, Myself included, and I felt there were so many amazing artists from around the world, lurking in the shadows of the Big artists now day's backed by the Four main record companies.

With their lies, throwing their money around at every corner, buying up all the radio slots and tv slots, and sticking their artist's right in the public's face, telling you how great they are and there for leaving the Real indie artist out in the cold.


If you heard an Artist on the radio constantly being played through out the day, you would think..

"They must be amazing!! Wouldn't you.?


But sadly that is not always the case, Gone are the days of the hoarseness poetic geniuses like the Dylan's of the world, Or the dark pain struck Lyric masters like Lennon with a real back story and real life thoughts.

We would be lucky to get an artist who's lyrics had not been spit out by Microsoft's WORD'S auto correct.? or all their music written and played for them by the same group of session musicians or worse still and in many cases, by a computer app.

Music for me, has gone too robotic with no life. It also seems to me that Artists are not getting signed by merit anymore, but if they have a pretty face and have a bit of a following.... Hay..."Please sign here" and off they go. The reality is, some don't even deserve to be there and after a few years dry up and disappear because they were FAKE to start with and SOME end up as reality stars on some crappy Tv show. Yay..They really did want to play music for the rest of their lives... NOT.


So last year I decided, enough was enough and that I was going to bring Real music back into peoples lives, Individuals or bands that I feel really have a talent, that should not be in the shadows anymore.

So I created Folks and Strokes, http://bit.ly/Folksandstrokesspotifyplaylist And on this #blog each week, I will be taking a different #artist from the playlist and delve into their #story , Breaking down their #art,

An insight from from one #musicalartist to another, a collection of REAL music, REAL stories, REAL passion from #upandcomingartists from around the world, The #Realmusicalartist for the REAL #musiclovers of the world.




Meet Some Of The Folks And Strokes Artists Past and Present ↓




Music Reviews, Artists past and presently on Our #folksandstrokesplaylist.



5th January 2020


A new year, brings a new thought.


As we head into the new year, as always, I find myself conjuring up them end of yearly thought’s. Thoughts I had through the past year, that some what got my artistic juices flowing . I can most definitely hear music changing for the good of man. Folk who know me, know I am very verbal when it comes to how I think the music business is heading, if we allow it to.

I love all music, but come on sometimes those that are in the charts don't deserve to be there.

So its in this thinking that others may think me like a mad man. Lol


But its my passion both as a musical Artist myself and as someone who feels they have their finger on the pulse of what #realmusic stands for. 


We are running into our third year here at #folksandstrokes and the best part of my job here, is finding and listening to new amazing artists, from around the world and I am so humble to get that experience, to actually really listen to their work.


Which brings us to our new artist review this week.



Magnus Josefsson I have known about for a while and have came across his music on many different lists I had the pleasure to have been involved with.

This right here, is what it means to be a seasoned player, you can hear it through his music that he knows exactly how to say it with taste, through his works.





From a music apprenticeship that most of us #Realmusicians obtain, for him it was obtained by working with many artists and touring with his bands through out Russia and Europe. 


And as a producer, this Swedish born Musical artist, who now hails along the many rivers of Vienna can create an atmosphere, that is sure to grab any sensitive ear and also leads their musical taste buds into any given story.






His song, Long Way Around The Sea which is featured on the #folksandstrokes play list is so beautifully produced, I love the light airiness about it. 

Which can be found here ⇣






It’s backdrop, just pushes the boundaries, its foundation set for that simply put, but effective single acoustic guitar brought to the front.

And with the female and his male vocal zoned into a space as one, this to me is a tune. 






Though, his #Spotify page just gives us a glimpse of his mind, I most certainly look forward to hearing more work from him going into the new year. 


The Years have been kind to this Producing Musical Artist Introducing

The Main Stream Music Industry don't seem to want us Indie's So, Do we really need them.?


Every single person that is involved or touched by music, whether it be a song writer, musician, sound engineer, Blogger, Even the guy hanging from his ladder screaming for help as he is trying to wash the studio windows, whoever. All true #musiclovers

They will tell you, That music is a personal thing. A personal choice folk make.


We all have, a personal taste.

Our favorite artists we delve into, on the downside we also have Music that has touched us in a unexpected way, little gems we don't dare to mention to others.

The inner secrets that we secretly dance to in front of a mirror, until we turn around to find a Wally with a mobile phone raised in our direction, followed by the dreaded words.

Now, that's just been shared to snap chat...


Noooooooo !!

But that is the beauty of it all, that beautiful universal language that we all call music.

Every Artist hits folk differently, Yet.? The so called captains of the music industry now days, still feel the need to tell us what we should be listening to and believe it's about the magic of fairy dust. That fairy dust being the algorithm.


What happens then is, Those little gems that come our way get lost.


But here at #folksandstrokes we love them gem's as if they were our own.



The Oaspm , though I am not sure what the name stands for or if is linked with the band Oaspm of the same name, maybe our good friend Jason can explain it a little later on for us.

One thing I most definitely am sure of and my partners here at folks and strokes agree is, this music really moves you.


It moves you in a way that it just leave's you wanting to hear more, in an intriguing way.

like you find yourself in a darkness searching and walking towards that sound you hear in the distance.. to find your way home.

It grabs you and in researching this musical artist, I was somewhat taken back by the fact this multi instrumentalist and budding sound engineer of over 25 years,





Does not seem to have released many tracks, though I did find from his sound cloud that there were more tracks there which he partnered with other artists to produce.

But, We want more, God Dam it..






The vocals on Hillbilly Propaganda, Wow.... they blew me away, I have to admit.

At first hand, the singer reminded me of an early Mark Boland of famed T-rex, credit where it is well and truly due.

And the whole song's production, from that beautifully licking toned guitar to the strummed banjo which can be heard on one of our Playlist's

Here


Just pulls you into a big bear hug that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. The lyrics are well written too, no short cuts taken there and sung really really well, I believed every word.


And its in hearing songs like this, that makes me love what I do here at F.A.S. and being a producing musician myself, I am glad to see others still take making music seriously.







Jason, Knows what he is doing and knows how to find that right mood within a track and is one to keep an eye on in the near future, for we will get out of that darkness with this music.


Don't believe me.? Take a listen for yourself, Introducing The OASPM.

When I started playing music, It seems like a different time now, but things where completely different. The music for one had more life to it , and most Real #musiclovers will agree that that is the biggest change.

Now it feels forced, it could be that its just a feeling I have being a musician and songwriter, but its real and a lot of the young listeners don't have that realism to this.

They have grown accustomed to excepting, crap over produced ,over compressed sounds, with no real lyrical concepts.

And its up to the real songwriter of the world to re educate them folk.


The world is an amazing fish bowl, with many wonders and tribulations, but the new age songwriter seems to miss that fact and they don't seem to know how to ,really write a song, Do they.?

Instead they just repeat the same lyrics over and over, pushing out the same beats,same chord structures (if there are some) and that is now what they call music.


Here at folks and strokes, we want to help that struggle and help songwriters to educate once more to what it takes to inspire within songwriting.

Which brings me to our next reviewed songwriter, here at #folksandstrokes

I really like this guy and within his flow, you can really feel he has lived and knows what songwriting is about.





Gerr Walsh, though he is calling himself an Indie-folk-pop Artist, Pop is every thing he is not.

Pop music now days is a mess, but this guy ain't, with his neatly pressed check shirts, he really has what it takes to get his words across.


He is another one of Ireland's Hidden treasures and with this Dubliner , you get a carefully crafted image through his acoustic heart felt folk, told through beautiful lyrics.






Gerr knows how to take his acoustic for a walk during his stories of life and love and some of his music, for certain brings me to the thoughts of what it would have been like during the early days of Frank Sinatra and Perry Como.

He is An absolute wonderful listen from the start.







His Latest release, an Ep called

Privailling Winds


A listen is a must, and a track called Ships from it can be found on the #folksandstrokesplaylist .


It's a slow waltz Jazzy paradigm through time, Folky at its core. But with a swing that has a bite to it. Which to me, bares witness to the sound of Nora Jones.



I can see from his work to date, that now he has started his story with grace, his musical journey will become ageless. A New age Crooner for our time. Introducing with pleasure Gerr Walsh

With the changes within the music business, which is in full swing now, there are other changes happening, which I am most interested in. #musiclovers of the world are realizing that the so called music industry had been lying to them for many years.

Gone are the days when a record company would approach a band or an original Artist with original music , and say... Hay, I like what you are doing. Maybe with a little help we can develop you future. No..........Not anymore.


And when I talk about originality, Basically I mean someone who is not afraid to try new things through their work. Think of the later Beatles, In my eyes the real Beatles music. They were not afraid to try, new and obscure methods to create new sound.

Instead we had got, Tailor made artists, with tailor made music that they felt would sell to the masses and in a way they were right on the money for a while.

But like all things, If you are going to hire the same writers to write your artist's songs (because most cant write their own) and the same producers to produce them, Like a dried up kettle after a while of boiling, its going to run out of steam, and Gladly for #indie artists like myself and others from around the world, mainstream is starting to loose its steam.


Now the music listener are turning to the #real songwriters again, which in turn is making the record companies scared to the fact they have teamed up with #spotify and #Deezer to try and quench an #indieartist breaking through, when the indie artist is fighting back and trying to make it a level playing field.


Which leads me on to Our next featured Artist here at #folksandstrokes.


Ray Scully is an Indie Artist from Tallaght in Dublin, who is not afraid to step out from the norm and remains after so many years of gigging all over Europe, still doing the music he believes to be true to his nature and a good nature at that.


I had the pleasure to have met him on a couple of occasions over the years, through an open mic night we were both performing at, where he had took a lend of my music stand (Don't worry he gave it back). In return he had asked me to support him on one of his own open mic nights in a cafe in Dublin.



What I liked, and still to this day remember about Ray Scully in first meeting him, was how polite he is and a really well crafted performer both through his own work and through his cover versions where he finds himself in reinvention.

His Album Lets Blow this Town which went straight into number 12 in the Itunes Charts, is an album he co wrote with a friend of his and is a Folkloire and sometimes Rocky step through his back catalog, in which his gritty vocal tells stories of life's cruel intentions and he tells his truths well.





His Latest release, a song called The Unbridled Man which can be found on the #folksandstrokesplaylist .


Is an upbeat Folky Indie song, With just enough Acoustic guitar to make it a real winner. It's melodies have you drawn into a corner you just don't want out of, until the song finishes but then you just want to step back in again. I really like this one and is one to check out.



This singer/Songwriter from tallaght'fornia as its now known by some in Ireland, is a guy who wears his music on his sleeve where his heart should be, as his passion is his music and his music is from his heart.


Its a pleasure to introduce Ray Scully.

What.?.......... With so many Bands and Artist's sounding the same out in this New highlight they are now calling the New music industry, it most certainly is a moment to let my breath go here at #folksandstrokes to hear someone finally not caring about being mainstream for the four BIG out for money makers and just writing how they feel and at the same time remaining original with their music.


Which brings me to this Duo called The Twin Oaks, they are made up of guitarist and multi instrumentalist Thomas Boute and the unique vocals and the percussion of Vincent Bartier.

Not to be confused with the American band of the same name. These guys hail from Lille in France, I've never been there, but it sure sounds like a nice place.


I really like these guys, Each song has its own little beauty attached to it.






For me, The Twin Oaks are a cross of Folk matched with a blend of country and blues, with some really interesting features within their compositions. Vincent's guitar work is really nice and being a guitarist myself I can really appreciate this and Thomas's vocals fit the songs well and draw you into their stories, and with their debut album With Our Own Hands. This album has been put together really well and the mix is spot on the mark when it comes to sound. A really good mix for any afternoon drive.



Their song Seasaw Motion which can be found here on the #spotify folks and strokes playlist which they start in their native tongue, is a moderate country blues number, I really love the groove behind this one and its chord changes, one to check out.




I feel The Twin Oaks are only starting to get their sound together, from what they seem to have released to date.


But they are very talented individuals and can write songs well together, and seem to spark off each idea.

I can see a big future for them both.





My only downfall, from researching these guys, is that I would have liked to see a bit more online presence from them. It saddens me to see so many indie artists out there, making it harder for themselves to get noticed.

It's bad enough they share a name with someone else, but as far I could see they just have a Facebook page and Spotify,Itunes etc and I would love to see more from these folks.


Other than that Folks, you just check them out, you wont be disappointed.

I introduce to you The Twin Oaks.

With so much noise floating around this sometimes cold world of ours, it always warms me to hear #real music creep through and show how music should be written and played.

A lot of people who know me personally, or know of my writing here on #folksandstrokes Know by now, that I am not a fan of computerized music, and I may be at times somewhat verbal about it.

I feel its lazy, If you want to call yourself a musician, at least learn an instrument, to get that understanding of how instruments should feel together and their relationships together.



Which brings me to Our newest Music review, In this musical artist's music you can hear that he really knows what he is doing, when it comes to writing a song and putting instruments together.


Barry Mcloughlin was raised in North Ontario in Canada and seemed to have found his voice there when he was sweet sixteen, but I feel its the Irish in him that gave him the heart for telling stories. This Irish born Dublin-er, tells his stories of love and walking through the trails of life with ease, though he classes himself as a #folk artist I believe its his upbringing in Canada and them surroundings, that has given him a mountain country feel in his music.


I really love his work and as I am writing this, I have his first album Windswept which can be found on Spotify, playing in the background.

Boy, does it paint a picture in my mind, this is a #realmusicalartist at work.



His song The Most Wonderful Girl In The World which is featured on the #folksandstrokesplaylist can be found by clicking here.


Is a mellow Acoustic song, I have to admit at first listen, I thought it was a sort of love song, but the more I listened to it, I had realized its about a father's longing to see his estranged daughter, after a relationship break down from her mother, which proves how heart felt this song really is.


Lyrically, this song for me is what songwriting is about and I can fully appreciate it, being a father myself and being estranged from a child, its not easy.

I love the way the a fret less bass guitar takes control through a perfectly placed riff to gel down a mellow acoustic guitar, the bass sort of sounds how the writer is feeling about his heartache as his vocal shines through this one and tell the story well.



His Harmonies,leave you wanting to listen to this song over and over and though it drives on through from start to finish.


It really shows simplicity can be bliss and that a song does not need to have a full on production, This song for me is just perfect and its instruments fit perfectly together, a song of songs and this writer has learned his craft well.






I have always felt as a songwriter, heart ache always makes a good writer and I would say this writer has had a fair bit in his life time and knows how to use his pain really well.

A great all rounder and someone Definitely worth your time to listen out for, as I believe there is a lot more to come from this #real Musical Artist.


A True Life writer and a true writer of #real music.

I am happy to introduce you to Barry Mcloughlin.


As always, Please show this REAL artist your support.

Going back to my early twenties, the days of when I first heard of David grey. Though he had been around for a while previously knocking on our doors, not quiet getting the answers he deserved, and still not a household name, with his white ladder album he seemed to come from nowhere.What struck me the most about that album, was how it was recorded.


I remember reading an article where he was being interviewed, he had mentioned that while recording the album, he used to have his friends around while recording and he had recorded the whole album in his flat. That to me is what interested me the most, and got me to listen to the album, I was intrigued and boy was I glad I did listen to it.

Now we find ourselves in this day and age, seeing a lot more artists doing the same thing. Which in turn, I have to say has produced some really terrible computerized music, But on the flip side it had produced some really interesting pieces.


Which leads me to Our Next featured artist here on the #Folksandstrokes Blog.




Lance turner, Is a Singer/songwriting, American life dreamer from Athens in the US, and is a guy that seems to be following the great Mr Grey's footsteps in that respect of home recording and he may be, in the feelings I get from his music, a re carnation and second chance at life, for the much loved and missed Kurt Cobain.



His New album The Black Rose Hotel he states on his Spotify page, was written and recorded in his living room, what a great place to start an album. Staring out, into an ever changing world and writing about it.


When writing music reviews, I always try to be true to my words, in a wake of helping the artist have a better understanding of their own work and of how it may be part taken in the greater scale of the wide wide world.

sometimes cold, but so warm with love and our shared love of Good music.

I like to tell it how it is, instead of sounding like I am kissing ass.


In saying that, I feel with this album, and though this guy can write a song and write it really well and his lyric's are spot on, no short cuts taken at all.

I feel in some of his songs on this album, the mix did not shine through and didn't feel right and it sort of hurt, what i felt was a great song for me.

I do understand, how hard it is to mix music (I have been there myself and wore that cap many times) it just seems like a shame, when a Good song is let down by it's recording.


But THEN, in saying that, when it comes to his stripped back Acoustic works on the album, for me this is where you can really hear this artist show who he is and how good he really is as a writer.


His beautiful guitar work and when he really focuses on getting his lyrics across, is where its at for me not the big productions. His song Photo Booth is one of those songs, that grabbed me from the first listen, Music to the ear. So for me all is forgiven.



Another song that comes to my mind, is a song called Eyes that Kill , an Acoustic song that flows so simply, but at times as you listen, if you are like me, you loose yourself in moments of thought and as they meander before you.



You then start to think of your

own life changes, through Love and everything that it puts in your way.






And as soon as that electric guitar solo cuts through the mix, you are grounded once more.


It is Absolutely Perfectly Executed.

Also in the mix to help it along, is a light array of strings, this is #real songwriting and I believe this artist is only starting musically to find his feet and this song can be found and is featured on the #folksandstrokes playlist and can be found HERE, Do check it out.






Lance is an artist, who has his music inspirations like nirvana, and I am led to believe Cobain had been the right touch to his life, that comes through in some of his music.

He writes,records and mixes his own work, though I feel when laid bare he talks more musically to me. As when he puts his own thoughts and his own expectations into his wonderful music, that is when we really hear what this musical artist is about.

Speaking of what he is about.? As I started researching him, I noticed he had not got many links to his music, maybe he is too busy writing this great music.

But I found it hard to actually find him on the web, other than #spotify and #facebook which I suggest he gets sorted, As he is definitely one to watch in the future #folks.



Introducing a punker with an Acoustic writing #Folk heart Lance Turner.

The next Artist up for review on the #folksandstrokes playlist, is a young lady I was impressed with from the very start. In a time when music has become too computerized, because of so many of our young opting to use samples and computer driven beats instead of doing it right and learning an instrument.


Luna Keller is true with her music and it is most certainly for me a breath of fresh air to see some of our youth still working hard at creating their art and from what I have read about this girl so far, her hard work seems to be paying off.

Her songs had been selected by a US record label for an album they were compiling of different artists, from that her song "Packing My Bags" Got selected to feature in a Starbucks Christmas add in Spain and her other songs had been nominated for numerous awards in America. Not bad for a young lady who wrote her first song about knowing how to play her first chord, E minor, and her hard work proves to me, she was born to write songs.



When Luna Picks up her guitar and starts to sing, its like they are both in a forever love affair, a marriage that is sure to last for a long time. She, I think is in the business for the long haul.




Her new Release, Alice is in Love With the Mad Hatter which she says she was inspired to write from the Alice in wonderland films and books.

Is now featured on the #folksandstrokesplaylist and can be found Here. It is a modern twist on how we portray ourselves to the world and of how we feel about ourselves, Keller says she feels, we are in love with our own mad side and the things that make us unique, in other words an individual.




This is such a beautiful well written crafted song.


In recording the song Alice is in love with the mad hatter. she had got a little bit of help producing it with her father, by getting some musician Friends into their home studio to help bring it to life, and just like Alice taking the substance to make her bigger, getting these seasoned musicians in, was a great call to make this track sound Bigger and you can tell from the track, that a lot of Love went into recording it.







I bet we will be seeing a lot more in the near future, from this artist.

She has everything going for her, Writing skills, Musicianship, a great voice and above all a BIG BIG heart. Introducing to you Our own Alice in Wonderland Luna Keller.

While writing a review on a Artist, I always love playing the artist’s music in background.

Sometimes a song would come on and it would take away my focus from what I was doing and that for me is an artist worth reviewing.


Colm Roy is one of those Artists, His unique vocal tells you a story and at the same time, draws you into his array of Harmon iced Guitar riffs and solo’s taking a forefront over a atmospheric back drop.  I have had the pleasure to have had a conversation over the past few months with this Dublin born self taught musician, he says he got back into writing music after a career of playing in many bands, when he decided to study music theory through learning to play guitar classically, his passion was awoken.



His music on the other hand, is beautifully crafted from a rock n roll vision.

Made up and touched by many different Genre's, parented by Rock and Blues, while fathering a sometimes mellow but grafting Indie rock, by a parent with a REAL story to tell and we love #real stories here at #folksandstrokes period.













His song,  Home again which is featured on the #folksandstrokesplaylist which is found here and is taken from his New album TIME AND TIDE.




Is a  song for me, that has everything going for it, and if there is ever a song that is radio friendly it is this one.


Home Again is an Acoustic Indie rock crossover , about walking through the streets of life and looking for all the answers of those questionable doubts, and it has many elements designed to draw the listener in, from its straight drums keeping the music in check, to his free flowing backdrop of soloing riffs and his nailed story telling vocal, what a voice.






This is one Artist that has it all and is one to most certainly check out in the near future.


If you have come here to rock, he will most certainly do that to your music loving ears Folks.Its my pleasure to introduce to you, a song smith after my own heart Colm Roy.

Darius Golab Golebiewski aka Mr D is a multi instrumentalist from Mokotów in Poland, who now as i can tell resides in Spain, is a seasoned musician who is not afraid to step out into the open with his musical works. Leaving himself bare naked to the world.

His fusion of jazz and blues, though at first glance at the artist you would think he was part of a heavy rock outfit, is light by nature but his unique vocal pulls you in from the very first chord.



His music consists of an array of instruments he plays himself, leaving a very personal approach and his compositions and albums touch on many different genre's, from captivating jazz to his Blues driven Guitar work that seems to be his main instrument , other than his voice of reason of course and in his song "Music" as he tells his love, about his admiration for all things her, through an old school blue's backdrop his guitar takes center stage with each flowing note reeling in each beat of his beating heart.


His song, a story to tell which is featured here on the #folkandstrokesplaylist.

is a tune, that reminds me of what it could have been like walking through the smoke filled jazz club of the mid 40's in America, enjoying the swing. But then as soon as his blues guitar work creeps in through his solo's, I am taken to another place in my mind, a sort of stepping in and out of two completely different worlds and he is the key holder opening the door.

The one thing that stands out for me, is his tone in his vocal and is by far very dominant and this artist knows how to use it well.


Darius says he is not inviting you to like or buy his songs, he just wants you to check them out.

But when you do, I believe, just like me, you will not only like them ,but you will grow to love them.

I am honored to introduce to you, a Father, a Musician and maybe the new Father of a new age jazz/blues Darius Golab Golebiewski .
