Josienne and Ben Reviewed!


The reviews are coming in for ‘Nothing Can Bring Back The Hour’, the new album from Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker! Few things excite us more than hearing what people think about our new releases, and the responses to this album have made us very happy indeed! The Guardian summed up Josienne and Ben’s appeal with a succinct ‘bleak but impressive’, describing the album as ‘elegant’. Folk Radio offered up an in-depth review that blew us away:

Nothing Can Bring Back The Hour is a stunningly good record; its multi-faceted blend of traditional and contemporary material and arrangements, combined with Josienne and Ben’s fearlessness in experimenting with cutting edge techniques and sounds have produced a work of beauty and depth which deserves to be acknowledged as a classic in the canon of contemporary UK folk music.’

How about that? And The Telegraph gave the record a much-appreciated (and hard-earned) four star review! They congratulated Josienne and Ben on their ambition in following up their last album, which was nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, with something so full of depth. ‘A bold success’, they say!

You can hear the record for yourself here and, should you happen to be in the Netherlands, catch Josienne and Ben this November as they tour your fine nation!
