'Last Weeks Tune' is a full length CD by the supremely gifted folkster Troy Faid. He played our local cinema the other week and kindly sent us a ticket so we could attend his show. I'd like to see the 5-6 of us trying to stoop in there dressed in one hugely overlength raincoat, keystone cops style. He's got a rustic yet young & charismatic style, see; Northern troubadour, sprightly finger-picking skills, a keen ear for melodic tradition yet the variety of hardy tune to hold his own in a climate spilling with pretty, smirking young things armed with a Bob Dylan album and a trust fund. Anyone with an ear for earthy, passionately executed singer-songwriter folk & acoustic blues, ranging from Drake to Jansch, Benjamin Wetherill to Charlie Parr should cock an ear towards this prodigious young talent!

Press release

Acclaimed songsmith Troy Faid launches his extraordinary debut album ‘Last Weeks Tune’, Faid has been described as ‘a young cat on fire... bristling with leashed passionate blues and folk’. His songs, beautiful in conception and poignantly eloquent in performance, have been characterised as ‘decidedly English, wistful and modern
troubadourish’ refrains, reminiscent of a time now lost. ‘Last Weeks Tune’ reinforces
his growing reputation as one of the shining stars in the contemporary English folk/blues scene. Recorded using the natural acoustic timbre of Leeds’ Cardigan Road church.

“streetwise but just as philosophical, bittersweet in tone and content… this guy's another player you'll swear has a second guitar or bass in accompaniment, but you'd be dead wrong, and delighted for it” (Mark S. Tucker; acousticmusic.com)

“Troy has managed to catch the essence of southern folk blues and then overlaid a sixties England feel. It gives the music a timeless quality. It also gives it a sense of wanderlust. It's not out of place anywhere, but doesn’t quite belong” (Neil Fatea; Fatea Records)
