Artist of the Hour: Ferraby Lionheart

So, it’s raining here, and I’m scrounging for some upbeat folk rock to pull me through the fourth day of dismal drizzle. While there are plenty of folk rock artists who fit the bill right now, I’ve decided to take it back two or three years to Ferraby Lionheart’s self-titled EP (first released in 2006) and his debut album “Catch the Brass Ring,” released in 2007. What brings me to this decision is the fact that so few people have heard of or anything by Mr. Lionheart, even though he made it high up on the CMJ charts with his EP and is well-known in the Los Angeles area, where he currently resides.

What’s more, he’s on tour right now, (and a string of the dates will be with my favorite folky group of the moment, Noah and the Whale) which means… If you live near where he’s touring, you should make the effort and see them!!! (I, however, do not, so I must live vicariously through those who do). Check out the tourdates at www.ferrabylionheart.com.

What’s more, the songs are all recorded at the Daytrotter studios, so a) the quality is really good and b) they include in-depth interviews and reviews with the artists if you want to learn more about ’em. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
