A couple of weeks ago I received an email regarding a brand new artist on the BGM roster and this being Truly Ford. The email basically said that she was an 18 year old dynamo and her songwriting abilities are impeccable.
Truly’s unique vocals and enigmatic live performances have her pegged as 2013’s “Next Big Thing!”. Also she has performed storming sets at Kensington Roof Gardens, Kings Cross Surya and the Cornershop.
So after reading this I decided to check her out myself and this was both at The Luxe and The George And Vulture over the space of 4 days. Ford’s vocals literally blew me away not only can she cover well known songs but Truly’s original material (which will feature on the forthcoming SuperNova EP) is outstanding.
I have witnessed her perform covers of Florence and the Machine, Cold War Kids, Bastille and Laura Marling and she does each song justice. Truly’s take on Girl With One Eye was so incredible it gave me goosebumps just hearing it performed live. There are hints of Amy Macdonald and Lana Del Rey but Ford’s vocals are completely unique.
Other than the covers Truly has her own original material. Each song is pure perfection and just having heard tracks such as Fallen, Noah, Black Dog, Tiger’s Eye and Help Me If I Fall makes me relish the prospect of having the SuperNova EP on my iPod.
Truly Ford is an impeccable artist and she deserves every single bit of success as possible. The fact that the style of music is Folk suits my taste.
