Folk Music Review: ‘See you in the Morning’ by Noel Cowley

Folk Music Review:  ‘See you in the Morning’ by Noel Cowley

After listening to Noel Cowley’s débuted EP I instantly knew that he had what it took to go very far in the music industry.  Perhaps it is because of his Irish background where it is almost innate that one becomes a successful musician or just the simplicity of having a relatable story to tell his audience that compliments his voice in an easy listening style.  Even though, I enjoyed quite a few tracks of Noel’s débuted EP I was sent over ‘See you in the Morning’ to review.

‘See you in the Morning’ is something you’d hear in a movie soundtrack as the credits are rolling or during a life-changing climatic scene.  That is the feeling I got from it.  That, and the thought ‘I can’t believe I haven’t heard this on the radio yet.’  It is a beautifully written song and I like the sound of it very much.  Noel’s lyrics are inspired by Neil and Tim Finn, Fran Healy, and Chris Difford & Glenn Tilbrook, all whom themselves are heavily Beatles influenced.  You can hear a lot of Noel’s music influences when listening to other tracks on his débuted EP.  Initially, after listening to other song Noel has written I could see Take That covering his songs as well as other bands.

Just because Noel writes and sings folk music doesn’t mean he’s an old-fashioned man.  Take a look at his website he’s a very modern folk singer who if the songs weren’t labelled ‘folk’ you would hear on an easy listening station such as Magic or BBC Radio on a Sunday morning whilst you were flipping your eggs.

Noel also duo’s with his brother Ewan who plays the piano.  His brother is also labelled as an “in-demand” multi-instrumentalist (haven’t heard that word since Yanni was made famous in America sometime in the 90’s with his album In My Time, one of my favourites I must add) which adds an added dimension to the music.  He is able to call on his brother to arrange his songs if need be to make them sound even better!

Noel Cowley will be performing at the Folkstock Festival on September 21, 2013.  Please come out to support all of the amazing musicians that will be at the festival.  I am personally looking forward to it!

Three year old girl trains dogs for a living.

7 May

Bella and RubenThree year old trains dogs for a living by using a very special tool:  the tennis ball.

RubenShe ensures that after she teaches her best student, Ruben Woof, that she rewards him with his favourite treat.  She believes that dogs concentrate best when on a fish diet so she rewards Ruben with James Wellbeloved Fish Flavoured Treats.

When asked how she finds enough energy to go to her Montessori nursery and train dogs she simply said, “I don’t want to be a doctor because I don’t like doctors.  I want to be a mummy so I could look after you.”  What an interesting response from such a little person.  When asked who her favourite dog was she replied, “Nicky, because she licks my face.”

Well, there you have it- a three year old who loves animals and is often entertained by them.  Thankfully, she hasn’t asked for any money yet.  Knowing this three year old girl she would want to capitalise on this.

Bella and Buddy

After a long day of training dynamic dogs, this tiny trainer needs a break.  She puts her feet up on her protege, Buddy the Beagle.  Now that is a good day spent.
