Christof van der Ven “Killed This Stone Dead” – Listen

Showing his youthful musical influences of 1960’s American and English folk, Christof van der Ven is a singer-songwriter who is about to release his debut album from which ‘Killed this stone dead’ is taken.  In his own words, he has had “ten years of dragging myself around and playing to whoever would listen, putting out EPs in the hope that they would be heard, and frankly procrastinating in the hope that the elements would combine with enough force to kick my arse into making this album”.  Judging by this gentle multilayered track it’s been worth the wait.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
