Awesome Awesome AWESOME!! Just Ace!

Kadia are my #FindFolkFriday. A recommendation from a friend and a cracking one too!

Kadia are a band to watch out for. This debut album confirms they are maturing rapidly as songwriters, as instrumentalists, as singers, as arrangers. They are the full package, destined to reach an ever widening audience.

Voted amongst the Best Folk Albums of 2015

The debut album from Dorset folk trio Kadia is full of unexpected surprises, including the slow and clever arrangement of Raggle Taggle Gypsy that opens the album. The album has an uplifting energy and ends with a version of the traditional Parting Glass that shows off the close harmony skills of Lee Cuff, Chris Bailey and David Hoyland.

Their eagerly anticipated debut album stayed true to their folk genre

Superb song writing, accomplished instrumentation and tight-as-you-like close harmony singing.  (Read more here)

Lots of great songs, well worth going to see and we hope to have them on the show very very soon.

There are few things in life as satisfying hearing a band that you’ve followed through their early single and ep releases really nail a debut album. That point at which all the promises made are called in and more than delivered upon. “East Of Alexandria” is an album of promises fulfilled and Kadia, can stand up and take a well received bow.Full article here

I have 4 albums playing in the car at moment and this ranks along with trad arrangements and cat stevens as a great album!

You make a very English sound, which I love

Kadia are great instrumentalists and they sing lovely harmonies together. The Beast of Bodmin Moor shows a nice and healthy development in the work of this great folk trio. It’s a fabulous tune that just never gets boring. (full article here)

I must say I was impressed with the sound this trio produced. Having been fortunate enough to have acquired a copy of the band’s latest EP, “Beacon Fires”, the EP more than confirms my initial thoughts, that Kadia don’t only know how to put a tune together, they also know how to make it theirs.

It looks like Kadia are becoming something really special. Songwriting, instrumental prowess, compelling melodies and arrangements – and you guys can sing. Anyone which can do a Katy Perry song in a folk club and make it work deserves an accolade! (Received by email)

The E.P opener ‘Beacon Fires’ is available to listen to above. It features a nice mix of Irish folk and modern acoustic, not to mention very catchy and well-thought out lyrics. Read more here
