Discovery: Herling

Herling is a singer-songwriter of the folk tradition, with his latest release, No Need To Fear, being a particularly beautiful track.

By Jane Howkins

Herling wrote the song about his mother’s sad passing two years ago, with the lyrics reflecting a conversation they had together. It’s very moving, and Herling effectively uses his guitar to create a multitude of different textures within the track that add to the wistful feel the song has.
