To describe Whiskey Moonface as an alternative folk group doesn’t even begin to do justice to the breadth of inspiration and style in their music.
Based around double bass (Dakota Jim), accordion (Louisa Jones) and clarinet (Ewan Bleach), they’re led by Jones’ superb vocals and hallucinatory lyrics. Capable of being both ear-to-ear-grinningly entertaining and profoundly moving, they combine elements of old-time New Orleans jazz, Eastern Europe folk music, the baroque/ chamber folk styles of the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Beirut, and the bacchanalian spirit of Tom Waits with their own unique take on contemporary roots music, to make for a superbly realised, truly beautiful, and utterly original sound.
There is simply no-one in the UK making music like Whiskey Moonface.
