'Diving Down' is the debut album from multi-instrumantalist/singer/songwriter Gemma Williams Woodpecker Wooliams. Taking retreat in an 800 year old cottage below a castle in Devonshire Williams has crafted a album of wondrous traditional folk and magical sea shanty's. Williams vocal is both beautiful and haunting where required but it's the balanced mix of chimes, bells, harps and dulcimers that give it a timeless quality that belongs to ancient folklore. Easily comparable to Joanna Newsom, Kate Bush and Coco Rosie at her most whimsical, 'Diving down' bridges the boundary between traditional folk and experimental pop that has been effortlessly archived by the likes of Bat for Lashes. A beautifully impressive collection of songs from an emerging songwriting talent with a great voice.
