This is music to enhance and lift the soul. It is contemporary folk that revels in the wonder of the natural world and pausing to absorb the moment. It feels important to celebrate that now. There is straightforward, graceful lyricism in Ian Roland’s work: “Count on today // Count on just today // Take hold of this one chance // And count on today.” The song soars on the strings of Simon Yapp and Brione Jackson, whose voices wrap beautifully around that of Ian Roland. ‘Songbirds’ is the latest single from the newly-released album, ‘Double Rainbow’, which comes highly recommended.
