"magical, timeless songs" - Seldom Heard Radio

"Avalon/Stepping off the Train/Hills of Albion limited edition cd review"

The Music has surely convinced me. Simon Stevens proves with his plainly expressed emotionality and clean song orientation as if dressed for live presentation that blues expressions (Stepping off the Train), hints of psychedelica, and certain links to troubadour occasions (Hills of Albion) can all go hand in hand … and indeed expand his range of expression. In an interview Simon said;

“See folk music is normally seen as a British thing, a guy with a guitar and harmonica, or a lass singing solo or playing violin, you know that kind of jazz. But if folk music is about people, then it’s everywhere. Take reggae for example, it’s really just West Indian Folk music when you think about it. Or rap music is the music of Black Street culture, or it used to be before someone started singing about arses and diamonds”.

The website shows campfires. Hills of Albion is hypnotically loaded with mostly many acoustic instruments, and creates a more mystic, psychedelic feeling. A name to remember

The first thing people always ask is “Why the name? Is it because you have a Robbie Williams sized ego?”

Although it may appear so, that’s not the reason why. I was doing my thing, while Yellowgroove were doing their's, until we collided on the M3. Simply, Simon Stevens & Yellowgroove is what you get when you put an acoustic Troubadour obsessed with Folklore with a Rock Band that make those truly great sounds they can only describe as “Yellow” moments. Folk-rock then? Maybe. Although Rock-Folk would be more accurate.

Armed with the sounds of the underground, literally in the case of the abandoned railway bridge and cave recordings I did (it’s a long story), this year we will be releasing our debut singles and album “Witches Wood” on tour with “ethical Indie label” Tygahoney Records on an Independent Licensing deal.

In the Witches Wood, the night is once again a place of fires, full moons and wild dancing. Howl with the Banshees and dive in.
