je vous présente le grand ami de Piers Faccini et Emily Loizeau le sud africain Nibs van der Spuy

21 Nov

In mid November 2011, Nibs van der Spuy releases his all acoustic album, ‘Morning Star’, in what is seen as a radical departure to Nibs’ highly acclaimed solo catalogue. What sets this album more apart is that it was recorded in one day and all the material was written 4 months prior to entering the studio. Secondly this is Nibs at his most musically naked. It features only his voice and various guitars recorded simultaneously, usually in the first or second take.

When asked for the reasoning for this different approach, Nibs had the following to say.

“I’ve always wanted to record an album essentially ‘live’ in the studio and totally solo. In pretty much the way Bob Dylan recorded his first 3 solo albums, saying it the way it is, in an organic and real fashion. Those albums still sound fresh and timeless 50 years later. Nick Drake did it 10 years after Dylan with his ‘Pink Moon’ album. Recorded in ten hours, it has now become a folk masterpiece and a reference to the NU FOLK movement of the new millennium”.
