Introducing Eliza Shaddad…

Sudanese/Scottish singer-songwriter Eliza Shaddad has an unusual, somewhat exotic darkness to her music reminiscent of Pina‘s “Gothic folk” sound. A former member of Clean Bandit, Eliza recently released her debut solo EP, Waters and the official title track video. Eliza has already hit UK radio, but as usual American outlets (with the exception of our pals at Knox Road) are a bit behind.

Tatam Reeves: Free EP Download

Canadian singer-songwriter Tatam Reeves plays quiet, unassuming but nontheless substantial folk-pop. You can download his entire Home EP at Soundcloud. I especially like the songs “The Note” and “Passenger.” The latter is the best example of what Tatam calls his “boom bap folk music.”
