James Yorkston

Music, intimate and sharing (La musique, l'intime et le partage)

52 min / Published

VIPop #35

Without looking for it in the least, James Yorkston has become a kind of master-standard of folk-music ... For the last twenty years, this Scottish singer-songwriter has made this territory his playground and exploration, by bringing in a pop and libertarian spirit, in particular ... And he's as moving as he's just on totally stripped down songs that he's warmly communicative on songs with more lyrical flights, often shared with other excellent musicians ... And you know why ? ... Simply because James Yorkston has a talent and a heart so huge ! ❤ …

Sans le chercher le moins du monde, James Yorkston est devenu une sorte de maitre-étalon de la folk-music … Depuis une vingtaine d'années, ce singer-songwriter écossais a fait de ce territoire son terrain de jeux et d'explorations, en y faisant entrer notamment un esprit pop et libertaire ... Et il est aussi bouleversant et juste sur des chansons totalement dépouillées qu'il est chaleureusement communicatif sur des envolées plus lyriques souvent partagées avec d'autres excellents musiciens … Et vous savez pourquoi ? … Tout simplement parce que James Yorkston a un talent et un cœur « gros comme ça » ! ❤ …
