I became aware of Louisa John-krol when I stocked an album by Oophoi (Gianluigi Gasparetti who sadly died some years ago) & Louisa John Krol ‎ "I Hear The Water Dreaming" on the French label Prikosnovénie. For me her voice and style is akin to Kate Bush but I'll let you make your own opinion on that. Throw in abit of Loreena McKennitt and there you have it. Elderbrook will form part of the Elderbrook Chronicles, a story over 4 books of which Elderbrook forms the musical side. Genre: Fantasy, Faery

Original release date 2017.

 

50 elves from 15 nations unite in a trove of ethereal songs.

In a soundtrack to her Elderbrook Chronicles.

After 20 years of indie record labels, Louisa calls upon fable, magic-realism, mythology, folklore & fairy tales, mingling Celtic neo-medieval balladry with dreampop & classical ambience,

from the melodic whimsy of Violin Velvet, to baroque blues of The Dwarf Of Barberry, baroque plushness of Escalder The Green Lady

and shimmering energy of Evander The Unicorn.
