Ryley Walker is a very modern type of troubadour. Across his four studio albums he has incorporated elements of finger picked guitar, free flowing folk-psychedelia and proved adept at the highest levels of improv, jazz and experimentalism. Both 2015's Primrose Green and 2016's Golden Sings That Have Been Sung ranked high in Drift's albums of the year magazines... and you know those guys don't get it wrong.

We've been lucky enough to see him play a few times and we can't wait to welcome him to Sea Change. Both in terms of his instrumentation, his band and ever more so his vocals, it's going to be a very special show.

A masterpiece of nuanced, almost spiritual, jazz-tinged folk rock… A beautiful album.
