Influenced by the likes of Nick Drake and John Martyn, the music that Marco Woolf makes can prove similarly complex to categorise. His lyrics are introspective and insightful, earning him a reputation as a self-evidently skilled storyteller. Thoughtful instrumentation is just as crucial to his compositions, clearly considered to ensure it possesses comparable weight to his deft wording.
His latest release, “Francine, I” follows an African woman as she migrates West for the sake of her children and perfectly typifies the trademark one-two punch of tenderness that makes Marco’s music so transcendent.
