Nitetimemusic – The Yarn Spinner (Self Released)


This would be Melbourne
based artist Bill Knight latest release and it is a 7 track EP that is very
much worth your time. It is a country influenced release and starts off with
the song Kiss which to me a ballad type track with the good use of the fiddle
and captures Bill lyrics and solid vocals.
 Circles starts with a voice over intro and
turns into a track that is very much to me influenced by Paul Kelly and can
easily see it being played on radio. Nice use of the keyboard and the band
behind him know their stuff and help make his tunes stand out. The Lady Who Turned
Into a Book is a little bit of dark ballad guitar and violin work well on the
track. Vocals fit perfectly together.
 Light
a Candle Up for Love is a song that reminds me a lot of fellow Melbourne Singer
Songwriter Mark Gardner and of course Paul Kelly. It’s a nice country track
that shows off lyrics, vocals, musicianship and production of the ep. It’s
another track that is very much ready for radio. Bush Campfire is a song that
has great use of the Tin Fiddle and another song that radio could easily play
and community radio could have a field day with it.
 The same is said for Leprechauns that has a
real Irish influence and u can see it in the writing and a good solid toe tap
track.
  When It’s Sunny finishes off the
ep well and has use of programming for drums that works nicely for the track.
Good solid vocals and lyrics stand out. You can tell Bill has been playing
music for a while and it shows in his songwriting and has the craft and
musicianship to back it up. There is a lot to like about this EP. I enjoyed it
and if you love discovering good Aussie music you can not miss this, worth your
time.
