James Edge and The Mindstep are a London based progressive folk trio. Stating their influences as Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, among others, they describe their music as “Weird and dark jazzy alt-folk”.
Regulars on the live scene, they already have one album under their belts. ‘In the Hills, The Cities’, was self-released in 2010, and was a “very impressive debut” according to R2 Magazine.
After recently signing to Folkstock Records, James Edge and The Mindstep are set to release a very special Double A side single on Feb 26th, followed by an EP on April 15th 2016.
The Double A side single will feature two specially selected tracks from their debut album, ‘Where We’re Going To’, and ‘Becoming’, both produced by James and recorded by Tom Aitkenhead.
The two tracks compliment each other beautifully. ‘Where We Are Going To’ is a joy, that bounces with playful uplifting melodies, whilst the slightly darker, ‘Becoming’, is beautifully hypnotic.
James and fellow band members, Avvon Chambers (drums) and Andy Waterworth (double bass), are joined on these tracks by a wealth of other talented session musicians.
The EP, ‘On A Red Horse’ will be released on April 15th and feature these two songs plus other previously unreleased tracks with the same producer and line up.
