Discovery: Calming River

Alternative, melodic, and beautiful are just some of the words used to describe the music of Calming River, the pseudonym of British born songwriter, Joshua Malcolm. Calming River’s previous releases have been widely appreciated by folk circles, have been featured in the Unsigned Guide, and have received numerous radio plays across Europe and the UK.

Calming River is now back with Haunted Part 1, the first of two tracks that build upon a common theme. It’s a subtle track, but it’s also one filled with emotion, and there is a darkness that runs throughout, which we absolutely adore. It’s almost eerie in a sense, representing that side of folk music which is often forgotten nowadays.

We can’t wait for part two, but we recommend you check out part one first to whet your appetites!
