Gabrielle Papillon, The Tempest Of Old, 2015

gabrielle papillon - the tempest of oldTime for something different! A yet unknown name, at least to me, Gabrielle Papillon is a singer whose music comes across as a mixture of country, folk and a bit of pop and rock. Emphasis is on melody and the arrangements succeed in highlighting the emotionally charged delivery of Gabrielle. These arrangements are done very well. Sometimes sparse, but with authentic sounds like violin, banjo, distorted guitars and percussion. In combination with vocal melodies that always seem to be hitting the right spot, this makes for a winning combination.

Opening track Got You Well proves the point, your attention is grabbed right away, and even the chants feel at home in this beautiful song. With Our Trouble has a distinct country feel because of the guitars (and later with the added banjo) and again the melody is just right. The whole of the album feels real and true. I am sure that if she would be singing in front of you, with only an acoustic guitar to accompany her, we would all be in awe. Her passion will take care of that.

So even if this is not music I listen to regularly, I am loving what I hear here. Pure and honest, songs with content, all done really well. Make sure you go check this out.
