We’re excited to be welcome Cinder Well to town!

Cadence, the new album from Amelia Baker’s experimental folk project Cinder Well, drifts between two far-flung seas: the hazy California coast where she grew up, and the wind-torn swells of Western Ireland that she’s come to love. Released in April 2023 on Free Dirt Records, the album’s name refers to the cycles of our turbulent lives, to the uncertain tides that push us forward and back.

With Cadence, Baker expands Cinder Well’s sound to include percussion as well as trance electric guitar and expansive string parts courtesy of Cormac MacDiarmada of Lankum. While there are still hints of the doom folk that Cinder Well is known for, Cadence balances heavy lyrics with a more expansive sound that nods to LA’s mythical Laurel Canyon years.

‘There’s a real weight in the opening that pulls you in, lifted by percussion over which Baker’s words really do work their magic’ – Folk Radio UK
