South Wales based solo artist Scarbelly, is proud to announce the release of his five song EP release “Elements” available now.
The second release, following the 2013 independently release EP “The Redrock Sessions” from the rocker is an electric mix of country, blues, rock, latin and bluegrass, drawing together Scarbelly’s signature sound with a few magical ingredients thrown into the mix.
The latest release marks a milestone for Scarbelly, as in 2009 he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. After first picking up a guitar at the age of 12 and playing his first gig at the age of 15, the illness put a stop to his musical career and the Welsh rocker had to relearn how to play the guitar and sing once again.
Since recovering, the illness cause a major realignment in his musical direction, giving him the inspiration behind his latest EP. “Elements”. Scarbelly mentions, “My love of writing, playing, singing and recording has been constant and my passion for the music helped me overcome this difficult part of my life”.
“Elements” the new EP available now, truly is a testament to Scarbelly’s love of writing, playing and singing, as the songs from the five track release are paved like dairy entries, wrapped up and embellished with layers of vocal harmonies, guitars and banjitars.
