Josh McGovern

The dark piece of folk/Americana opens with his unique deep tones, which are achingly beautiful among hushed guitar strums before he breaks into a deeply emotive chorus. The result is similar to the songwriting work of Nick Cave, Jeff Buckley and Leonard Cohen.

The video features haunting shots of sea-swept cliffs, cut between Josh delivering his mournful, melancholic and mesmerising voice. The atmosphere is dark and introspective, with soulful searching sentiments conjured by rolling waves on the British coast.

Catherine McGrath

Lastly, perfect for an Advent Calendar – It’s very nearly time for the Christmas Holidays to begin, a gorgeous stripped-back version of the classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by country-pop star Catherine McGrath.

It’s a beautiful and warming acoustic ballad. No jingle bells, just her gorgeous voice and melodic guitar-playing to get you ready for the festive season.


Bluesdoodles is looking forward to working with Wilful throughout 2018.

This four track EP is a mellow snippet of Harry Pane’s approach to acoustic singer/songwriter Americana infused music. Guitar and voice perfect accompaniment when chilling on a Summer’s day.
Yes, Changing has a feel of Americana, in reality, Changing is guitar and vocals they cajoles and allows the song to be at the heart of the stage where Harry Pane sits and plays. The four tracks have a simplicity that charms with guitar backdrop curling around the lyrical story. Changing opening number shapes the reality of being ready for change it is the only certainty so be ready. Ghosts picks up the ethereal opening with sea on a beach. The guitar sounds at times like Don McClean. The percussive quality of wood and zing of wire are used to good effect. The music fills the space as we explore Karma’s Prey. The lyrics hit home the moment may be bleak and grey but optimism gives the track a glimmer of sunnier times. The tempo mood and feel changes as the guitar sound is pure country-blue and Cold Light Of Day closes out and EP that gives a glimmer of the breadth and scope of a talented Singer-songwriter. The honesty in the lyrics gives a personal depth of tone as he ponders and explores his relationship with his father through his evocative music.
