James Elkington – Make It Up
James Elkington is someone you’ve probably never heard of but yet you’ve heard plenty from. That’s because Mr. Elkington has played in several well-known bands, collaborating with such artists as Richard Thompson and James Tweedy. His finger-style guitar licks are a magical bit of musical sorcery here on Make It Up, the lead-off track from Elkington’s forthcoming debut solo LP, Wintres Woma, which is ‘the sound of winter’ in old English. [The record is due to be released on June 30, 2017, but due to forward posting, it has not been released at the time of this writing.]
There’s not enough of the long-player available at the time of this writing to give a more thorough look at the contents of Wintres Woma, but we will try to swing back in a few weeks to take another look. Another track that is available now is Sister Of Mine, a more laid back introspective tune than Make It Up, which shows off Elkington’s diverse interests and styles.
