Product Description

Product Description

The third album by the much acclaimed, BBC Folk Award nominated singer songwriter Bella Hardy, is a stunning, ambitious step forward. Having made a name for herself in traditional English music with her debut album "Night Visiting" and its follow-up "In the Shadow of Mountains", it was clear that Bella was more than just a fine interpreter of folk songs. Having been nominated for a BBC Folk Award for the self-penned "Three Black Feathers" (later covered by Jim Moray on his award winning album "Low Culture") Bella's next record featured much more of her own work, including the Lennon & McCartney-esque 'Sylvie Sovay', a re-imagining of folk's eponymous highway-woman as an abused wife on the brink. It was described by English Dance & Song magazine as "destined for classic status". "Songs Lost & Stolen" combines the traditional styles and ballad forms that have always been at the centre of Bella Hardy's work with an added gift for poetry and Angela Carter-inspired twisted tales. Consisting of 12 self-written songs that touch on both the fantastical, storytelling elements of Kate Bush and the lovelorn songwriting craft of Carole King, her lyrics range in subject matter from fairytales to English working class history via childhood nostalgia, myths, murder and the human condition. At the centre of all this is Bella's soaring and captivating voice, inhabiting her characters and spinning her stories with an equal balance of strength and sensitivity.

"More than a new generation folk revivalist….her potential is massive." - --MOJO

"...an often bleak, thoughtful set that echoes anything from British traditional ballads to country music and theatrical pop and proves she is a fine storyteller....an impressive set."
-- The Guardian ****

"..marvellously assured"
-- Financial Times ****

"More than a new generation folk revivalist....her potential is massive." -- fRoots

"The freshest spring voice of the nu-folk scene."

Format: Audio CD
'Songs Lost & Stolen' is Bella Hardy's third album and a step up from her previous releases (though they were also good records). Comprising
of 100% self written new songs this time around,'The Herring Girl' nevertheless sounds like a classic trad folk tune passed down through
the years, while 'Walk It With You' is a lovely country ballad performed as a duet with Kris Drever. The album is produced by Mattie Foulds
of The Burns Unit, and, just as with their 2010 debut album, he's done a great job. Highly recommended stuff.

I enjoyed Bella's previous albums but this this is the best of the three. Bella's powerful and evocative voice combines with a rich variety of backing musicians who do full justice to Bella's intriguing songwriting. All the songs are original but this is not your average navel gazing singer/songwriter material. The CD is a grower, repeated plays reveal more and more depth to the songs and the arrangements. Fabulous.

It has been interesting to watch Bella Hardy's progress. In Songs Lost and Stolen she emerges as a mature singer songwriter, with excellent and varied material and always beautiful presentation. Her songs range from traditional sounding ballads like The Herring Girls to the ethereal Full Moon over Amsterdam to the exuberant Written in Green - and all moods in between. It's a lovely album.

Recently getting into a bit of folk/traditional music and really enjoying Bella Hardy. This album is superb and the more I listen the better it gets. Great tunes and lyrics and just lovely to chill out to with a glass or two. Also saw her live recently and fell a bit in love with her but that's not particularly relevant. Just buy it.

A stunning showcase of original and sophisticated story telling woven seamlessly with evocative and accomplished composition and vocals. This album showcases in full the talent which earlier original works have given us much cherished glimpses of. A superb album.

I kept hearing the "herring girl" and decided after some time to try the album. I like Bella Hardy's music and the album is something to kick back to and just chill out. Excellent
