Cheers, Faccini!

Meet Piers Faccini. Get to know Peirs Faccini. Listen to his music. You will like it, even if you don't want to (although I don't know why you wouldn't). This London-based singer-songwriter that writes pieces that range from the sentimental to the funkified soulful kind. His voice is reminiscent of Jack Johnson and Alexi Murdoch (one of CSVMAD's favorites) rolled into one. He's certainly got a funky flavor, and a soft raspy-ish voice to complement the arcing masterpieces that make up his first full release Tearing Sky.

The songs on Tearing Sky put you on river dock, mid-summer, during sunset as you watch the dramatic sunset beyond the tears. The whole album has this low-lit tone, as if it was meant to be listened to with the lights down and the ears perked up. On "Sharpening Bone", you can really experience everything Faccini is able to do with his plucking hands and his unique voice. "If I" features a pretty neat bassline and a catchy chorus of "If I's" that will be ringing in your head long after the 3:49 is over.

Go and get Tearing Sky.
Listen to "If I"
Listen to "Sharpening Bone"
