Calming River, a Denmark based singer songwriter whose new EP ‘The Ones That We Left Behind’ is out now, is perhaps one of the most impressive independent acoustic artists currently releasing music in Europe. A bold statement perhaps, but one I personally believe to be true.
As evidenced by the track above, his voice is flawed and charming, his guitar playing is clean and crisp, and the lyrical content very affecting. ‘Solemn Witness’ is just one of four tracks which share these qualities, making this a very consistent EP in terms of quality.
There’s no indication as yet whether there’s a full length album on the way from Calming River. Fingers crossed it’s coming. But in the meantime, take the time to digest ‘The Ones That We Left Behind’ as there’ a lot to appreciate here. You can find it at https://www.calmingrivermusic.com/ .
