The pigeonholing of music can be a foolhardy and ultimately futile pastime so rather than finding a meaningless label let's say that Crayon Angels are three pleasant humans playing some nice songs for grown-ups.
The different elements they use - acoustic guitar, a soulful female vocal and atmospheric electric and slide guitars - combine to occupy a musical landscape somewhere around Folk, Americana and Soul.
The subject matter of their songs touches on such thorny issues as: older person love, bedsit love affairs past, the ludicrous behaviour of middle-aged men and the joys (or otherwise) of parenthood.
Others, who know about these things, have written that they are "quintessential English Pop/Folk crossover at its finest" and "quietly magnificent". Well, if you insist...
Their second EP ‘Postcards’ recently popped out on the Submarine Broadcasting Company label and received airplay in all the right quarters (BBC Radio's Genevieve Tudor, Blues & Roots Radio, Liz Franklin, Chris Arscott, Brian Player, Fiona Elcoat among others).
With recent live appearances at such convivial and well established venues and events as The Harrison, Slackfolk, Wilde Sundays, the Running Well and Bishops Stortford acoustic clubs and the Loughton, Royston and St. Neots folk clubs - Crayon Angels are earning a nicely growing reputation as all-round good eggs.
