This week, “A Change of Tune” host Joni Deutsch interviews Piers Faccini, an English singer-songwriter who specializes in intimate folk. Although his bedside folk style invokes comparisons to Nick Drake, Ray LaMontainge and even Jack Johnson, Faccini shows he’s more than just a quiet voice by infusing his music with Delta blues, Mediterranean melodies and neo-classical compositions. His new record with French cellist Vincent Segal, titled Songs of Time Lost, goes to prove why Faccini stands out from the folky crowd. If you’re a fan of eclectic and unassuming folk steeped in good ol’ English sensibility à la Hozier, this interview and record are recommended for you.
Piers Faccini and Vincent Segal just released Songs of Time Lost this past October. If you can’t catch the duo on their fall European tour, you can keep up with them on Facebook and Twitter. To hear more of their music, tune in to Joni Deutsch’s “A Change of Tune” this Saturday at 10 PM EST on West Virginia Public Radio.
