AROUND KENT FOLK (Feb/March 2010)
Tree of Souls
Each Landermason CD is a voyage of discovery and what a good journey it is. Nine of the ten songs are self-composed but with so many different styles - soulful, bluesy, jazzy, folkrock. All entertaining, nothing harsh about the music, just smooth sounds. The title track is about passing a tree hung with boots and shoes - literally a tree of life and souls (soles). 'Broken' - haunting sax reflecting the brokenness of lost love, 'Scrapbook' & 'Living ona Shoestring' are stories of the trials of life on the road playing clubs and trying to get gigs. 'We mix up folk and jazz, like no-one else has, quite the way we do' (Shoestring). 'One for the Road' - wonderful philosohpy of nothing really matters but happiness. They are a duo whose music would easily fit into folk, jazz and blues clubs and any festival. Fiona and Paul have got something relly special in their music.
