O Memorie is a concept-project sheltered by Joseph Ruddleston. It merges lo-fi, folk and ambient sounds to tell songstories -
for those midnight listeners
and those diary readers
and those bedside phonecalls
and those quiet commutes
and those tired-eyed, fried minds that fill the waking world
"It’s like you randomly dialled a number at 2AM and started pouring your thoughts to the first person that picks up."
New album, O Memorie, out now: https://omemorie.bandcamp.com/
Eve Singleton is a 17 year-old singer songwriter from Warwickshire with more of her own songs than some manage to write in a lifetime.
Her live performances are characterised by an accomplished and creative acoustic guitar style, and a powerful, captivating voice that just gets better.
