Auden’s latest ambassador is English folk artist Dan Webster. His new self produced release for 2015 THE TIN MAN is the pinnacle of his work to date. It explores folk, country and rock and roll across the album fusing these styles throughout the body of the work. Webster’s delivery sits perfectly within English folk and American styles through rock and roll to Country/Americana and beyond.
The album is a conceptual look at life journeys both metaphorically and direct. There is a sailor’s journey, told using his arrangements of two English and one traditional American folk song. One To Remember and No.17 discuss journeys in a situational context, No.17examining how small journeys can reflect and offer deeper insight into life and its continuing cycle. Life and loss feature throughout as well as hope and love. This is honest work, Dan lived the song Elvis, met the “old boy’ in One To Remember and rode the No. 17. (That said, in truth, he can’t remember the number of the bus route).
