Jess Cahill: Long Time Have I Been Waiting

Sober and stark French hurdy gurdy tunes. Melancholy, gentle English original songs set to pensive concertina. Crystal-clear recording throughout, all the harmonics of the drones, all the waspish buzzing of the melody lines captured in ear-tickling relief. Nifty guitar-fingerpicking and cello from guests Frandk Alba and Laura Victoria respectively. Only criticism would be that Jess’s voice is a little far back in the mix - suspect this is more an unwarranted reticence (I’ve heard her live and she has a lovely, natural singing voice).

Thanks for the plug!

The album's been pleasingly getting a big thumbs up everywhere, including from the likes of Nigel Eaton, DJ Ritu, Dave Eyre, Genevieve Tudor and Dominique Forges (who wrote the classic gurdy tune La Sansonette, which is on the album). Have had various bits of radio play, should be getting reviewed in fRoots (not sure which issue) and a track is featured on the current fRoots podcast too.

My website is here.
