Although not strictly retro, singer/songwriter Luke Ritchie certainly adopts a classic approach to his music and has a sound that will no doubt hold much longevity.
Few songwriters can rise to a challenge of writing one song a week for six months, yet little over two years ago that is exactly what singer songwriter Luke Ritchie did. Gaining a huge following via the internet, Ritchie signed to Angel Falls Records and recorded 11 tracks over two snowy weeks in
Scotlandearlier this year.
The result is The Waters Edge produced by Paul Savage is a gloriously catchy and sometimes gritty collection of folk rock from the rough and ready Shanty to the beautiful Northern Lights.
The Waters Edge is an album that deserves repeated play.
