Tony Volker is a South London songwriter who makes artfully produced Electro-Folk. Volker’s songs are produced at his home using a mix of classic audio recording and subtle, sparse electronics. Volker delivers vivid imagery courtesy of both experimental, textured sounds and symbolic lyrics delivered with emotion and character.
His last release “Break & Reshape EP” garnered attention from NME and Four Culture Magazine among others with lead single Kingdom of the Beasts being played by Blur’s Dave Rowntree on XFM and Chris Hawkings at BBC Radio 6Music.
Citing James Holden and the Animal Spirits, Francis Bebey and Goat as some of the key influences, his latest release, Where the Light Gets In, draws on, Indian ragas, Electronica, Psychedelia, Folk, Hip Hop, Pop, Grunge and Indie to create a kaleidoscopic and textured listening experience. Lyrically the album attempts to offer a positive and optimistic perspective on contemporary anxieties and traumas on both a personal and social level.
