A few weeks back I saw Bella Vista recording artist Holly Macvae playing at The Cluny 2 in Ouseburne, Newcastle. Her support act for the show was Will Stratton, an American singer-songwriter playing on the evening he was about to turn thirty. His songs were unadorned, poetic objects of small beauty in the Nick Drake vein of things. He was excellent. This comes from his latest album, just out.
