Hints of African high life, British folk, free-improvisation, Brazilian spirituals and blue eyed soul gracefully come together in Doug Tielli’s second release, Keresley. The album will be released on September 30 via Tin Angel Records.
Named after the village-come-suburb, Keresley, on the outskirts of Coventry England, where, after a short U.K. tour, Doug took up temporary residence after missing a flight back to his home in Toronto. He spent the next two months walking a dog, drawing, dreaming, and recording this album.
Laurene Laverne recently picked Doug Tielli’s A Dream That I Am as one of her mpfree’s of the week on her BBC 6 Music Show. The track is available to download from tinangelrecords.bandcamp.com/track/a-dream-that-i-am now.
