Incorporating all manner of moods and musical styles, with a variety of organic folk instruments from clarinet to mandolin and cello, The Azure Sea proves all at once a treat for the real music fans, and an artistic snapshot of the times we’re living in.
“I wish that music was all about the songs and not about the artist. Music should be judged alone on its inherent quality (or lack of) and not as a part of a greater story. Personally I can listen to an artist for years without having any interest in knowing more about them.”
From the climate to social justice, history, health, war, refugees, pointlessness, by way of undeniable Gypsy-folk prowess & lashings of addictive, memorable melodies.
“I was pretty terrible at playing famous songs, so I had to make up my own – that way no one could say I was playing them wrong.”
Since 2006, Fynbo has released five original albums, an achievement that this latest project speaks volumes on behalf of. That level of skill, knowledge and authenticity can’t be faked, and generally takes a lot of dedication to reach.
