Into The Fall allows, for many, the mind to feel a soulful human presence purely through melody, musicality, and mysterious poetry.
“I love the melodies in traditional Celtic music. I love the dance feel that happens too, but what really drives me are those beautiful melodies. They’re happy and sad and hopeful, just like life.”
Treated strings swoon along like squeezeboxes, guitars work together with a comforting stereo spread. Bass quietly thrums and underpins. The harmonising to the lead vocal is effortless but vital. The harmonies chosen warm the song through to the core. It’s a delicate and thoughtful piece that showcases a tremendous, characterful vocal.
In an age of pitch correction and quantised instruments, here is a journey into sound that allows you to hear every pluck, every strum and every word with a vibrancy and clarity that speaks volumes about the live experience and about an exceptionally well-rehearsed band that have been honing their craft and chemistry together for the best part of twenty years.
Celtic Purple brings together soulful performances with engaging melodies and an array of musically warm soundscapes, each with a fairly raw and intimate presentation style, giving off the sense that Cady and the band are playing right there in the room with you.

Gorgeously cinematic guitar tones meet with folk-like story-telling and stunning harmonies on this latest EP from Night Market.
Beginning with an intriguing hit of poetry, followed shortly afterwards by a mildly haunting, slightly Gypsy-jazz like rhythm and soundscape, the song emerges with a decidedly traditional folk aura.
There’s a certain caliber of artistry represented here that extends skyward without limits.
