“Must say I’ve been looking forward to playing you this selection of tunes, especially this, I think we might have uncovered something a bit special here, produced by a young lady of 20, that’s Lauren Deakin Davies and sung by a vocalist who’s just 15yrs old and she’s already an award winner. Say hello to Emma McGrath”. Paul Sexton, BBC Radio 2, 29th November 2015

 

XSNOIZE JE review

 

 
“I rarely hear a folk artist being championed outside the specialist press, those you do are usually well established within their niche. Once in a blue moon I hear something worth sharing and Kelly’s music is just that. I’m unsurprised that she’s managed to get sponsorship from the likes of Hohner with her high and sweet voice and poignant and traditional storytelling style.” Tom Day XSNoize

Folkwords review

“Kelly Oliver writes songs that touch you deep inside, cause eyes to water and hearts to rise. The songs on ‘Bedlam’ will remain by your side long after the album has finished” Tim Carroll, Folkwords

REVIEW FROM TIM CARROLL FROM FOLKWORDS FOR DOWNTOWN “In a relatively short time Folkstock Records has established itself as the ‘go to’ place for those folk artists that many other labels ignore. And the result of their ‘opportunity creation’ has delivered some outstanding artist to a wider and highly appreciative audience. Without discrimination by position in the genre, longevity or gender, Folkstock has consistently ‘done a fine job’ in bringing folk music to your ears. Their latest release is ‘Downtown’, a compilation of ‘taster tracks’ from artists’ forthcoming albums and ‘special recordings’ made exclusively for this album.” Tim Carroll, Folkwords.

REVIEW JUST IN FROM KATY DAVIS FOR BOTH SIDES NOW MAGAZINE FROM 11TH NOVEMBER FEMALE ONLY PERFORMER LONDON FOLK AND ROOTS SHOWCASE

BSN review Katy Davis 11 Nov

  • Zoe Wren : enchanting vocals and cheery interaction with the audience
  • Daria Kulesh glided through her set and transported the audience to a mystical zone of mesmerising lyrics and far-away lands
  • Raw, honest and mesmerising. Minnie Birch drew me in and refused to let my thoughts wander away from her soft voice,
  • closed-eyed intensity and delicate guitar playing
  • I first saw Kelly Oliver perform at Larmer Tree Festival this summer and was arrested by her engaging lyrics, unique voice and communication with the crowd

“For sheer passion in terms of promoting new artists, there cannot be many outfits to beat Folkstock, the small “boutique” record label that’s helped bring a number of acts to wider attention” Darren Johnson
