Luke James Williams shares a fantastic slice of folk with new single "This Says"

Cambridge based Luke James Williams has today shared a fantastic slice of folk with his new single "This Says". The track is his first release since his 2019 single "Rabbit Hole".

The single was recorded at Unit Studios in Letchworth and was mixed by Alex Bush, with the track being mastered by Greg Calbi - who's worked with The National - with the piece of work having a community choir being featured, 'Sing For Joy', giving it that added layer of texture to wrap your ears around.

Having had praise from every major radio DJ in the country, such as BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson, Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft all playing it on the radio station. Hes also had attention from Amazing Radio and BBC Itroducing, which meant he's had playlisting from none other than Folk Radio UK, a major player in the folk scene.

The song is terrifically tender with some delightful acoustic guitars and ukulele tones from the off. Every time I get to the chorus there is a massive sense of elation as the choir comes in and gives the track that atmospheric edge. His vocals remind me of the stripped back Frank Turner shows that I've been to, so tender yet fragile at the same time.

Remember the name, Luke James Williams, he will be a big name on the Cambridge Folk Festival when it is hosted again, and if he keeps on writing songs such as "This Says" then the sky is the limit for this up-and-coming songwriter.
