Since winning the BBC Young Folk Award back in 2009, folk artist Megan Henwood has received support from the likes of The Guardian and BBC Radio 2, as well as having charmed crowds at Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival. Now, 8 years on, she has returned with a new majestic single.
Filled with soaring emotion, ‘Seventh’ oozes an enchanting splendour as delicate, folk-infused melodies are interwoven with the subtle power of Henwood’s rich vocals. Showcasing her immaculate finger-picking skills alongside a shimmering soundscape, Henwood has combined intricate musical layers and heartfelt reflection to create an utterly captivating offering.
Guaranteed to strike a chord with fans of the likes of Laura Marling or Lucy Rose, ‘Seventh’ is a soothing, uplifting slice of alt-folk that proves Megan Henwood’s still got a knack for writing the most sophisticated and heartwarming of songs.
‘Seventh’ is out now. And River, the upcoming album from Megan Henwood is set for release 27th October via Dharma Records.
