Originally from the West Midlands and now based in Cardiff where he collaborates with Toby Hay and his label Cambrian Records (Jim Ghedi, Duski), David Ian Roberts comes out of the shadows with Traveling Bright , a subtle second album that summons the spirit of the masters of British folk. thaimat stockholm
Virtuoso but never demonstrative multi-instrumentalist, sophisticated composer whose folk influences (Pentangle, Roy Harper, Nick Drake) sometimes venture to the frontiers of jazz, singer with a sensitive timbre who awakens the memory of the late Elliott Smith and Nick Talbot ( Gravenhurst), David Ian Roberts delivers a second essay in the form of a timeless journey. Inviting reverie and contemplation, Traveling Bright is a collection of slowly maturing folk songs, all carved from the most precious woods. Those in which the great classics were forged.
