ylan Tucker is an Australian ex-pat currently living in the UK. Dylan and his friends have put together a very enjoyable collection of acoustic folksy songs accompanied by guitar, banjo, harmonica, bells, and myriad other instruments and sounds. The vocals are authentic and exceptionally inviting, albeit a little rough around the edges. That doesn’t detract from the overall record, though, because it sounds like a bunch of guys around a campfire on a beach singing praises.
From the opening few bars of “May Our Praise,” it is clear that this album is going to be a creative adventure of sound and lyrics. The infectious rhythms and Irish-like sounds draw the listener in on the up-tempo songs, and the story-like lyrics of slower songs such as “Your Cross Marks the Spot” keep you listening.
Sounds like: Rend Collective (especially their campfire album), Mumford & Sons
