Exciting day for my label Beating Drum today, we’re releasing the third EP in our HEAR MY VOICE vinyl series, championing folk voices from around the world.
After GNUT and TUi MAMAKi, it’s the turn of HORSEDREAMER, featuring the voice and lyrics of Trinidadian poet and singer Roger Robinson set to music that I wrote and played!
Discover now the 4-song EP in a gorgeous 12“ vinyl package or on digital music services.
HORSEDREAMER is the voice of the aclaimed UK based Trinidadian poet and singer Roger Robinson. In this incarnation, the prolific artist and singer, known also for fronting the cult band King Midas Sound, puts words and voice to compositions by Piers Faccini.
This EP of new songs champions the anti hero and draws parallels with radical survival in the present political and economic climate. Taking its influences from Narcocorridos and outlaw country as well as far western folklore, the ep forges a new subgenre that Horsedreamer today call gangsta folk.
