Today I’m proud to premiere something timeless and almost otherwordly. French Life is A Minestrone has been responsible of creating excellent various artist compilations during the last few years, but the proper birth of Life Is A Minestrone Records happens on the 24th of August when they release a remarkable album from Joel Henry Little.
Joel Henry Little is a young singer-songwriter from New York City and his moving and incredibly beautiful album Spuyten Duyvil is a work of art. His music has echoes of the work of classic pop composers like Harry Nilsson, Emitt Rhodes, Jimmy Webb and Jimmy Campbell. Another main ingredient is his love of Broadway musicals and these influences effortlessly blend together to form a glorious and timeless combination of classic 70s pop/folk songwriting, baroque pop and Broadway musicals. Spuyten Duyvil is an exceptional album that takes you on a imaginative musical journey that leaves a lasting impression.
Spuyten Duyvil is out this Friday on Life Is A Minestrone Records. Listen to the beautiful album below and pre-order it from Life Is a Minestrone’s Bandcamp.
