Cade | Homesick and Fruit Fly (Video)
Thanks again to Mitch Fillion at Southern Souls for capturing this beautiful performance by a band named Cade, the same name as their lead singer. I was floored right away when I first heard the opening few lines of “Homesick”, which reminded me of a style somewhere between Ane Brun, Miss Emily Brown and Alessi’s Ark — which is fine company. There’s an organic feel to the way the melodies gently swirl around the singer’s voice. The sound is partly out of a folk tradition, but fleshed out richly with backing instrumentation. Listen for yourself below. What a stunning couple of tracks. Can’t wait to hear more from this band. Be sure to visit Mitch’s site, because he does some wonderfully under-appreciated work there. Can’t say I know much about the band, but they are made up of singer Cade, Wes Allen on drums, Julian Clarke on guitar and Josh Bois, also on guitar.
