ERA and ERA 2 are wonderful!

also a great musician and songwriter is Aimee Mann. she wrote the music to the movie magnolia. just that she wrote the music before the movie existet and they made the movie because of her songs! she is really great and i love her lyrics.


it's a bit late but.. I love love Era! Especially the first two albums.. do you know if they are going to make a new album?

Just letting you know that not all of Era's songs are in latin although they sound like Latin, namely, they ALSO use a fictitious nonsense language!! I have read this from some online source but cannot remember where... But, not everything is in Latin!

Personally I have got some of Era's albums but I listen to them seldom because of so strong guitars & drums! I am not a fan of Enigma for same reasons neither...

Sorry to interupt the convo.., but i was wondering if anyone had ever heard of/likes/hates an artist called Seth lakeman. I've been listening to some samples of his over on itunes and to me he sounds almost like a male eliza carthy.. could anyone give me some advice?

I recently stumbled across an artist called Emma Shapplin. Has anyone heard of her, or does anyone like her music? I looked on her site and it seems she has two albums out, Carmine Meo and Etterna.

Any info and opinions on her would be great :mrgreen:

I once had Carmine Meo loaned from the local library, but the pop beat in the background of Emma's songs isn't just my taste! I love the melody of Spente Le Stelle for example, but alas the drumbeat...! Have seen Etterna for sale over here as well, but as I listened to it in the shop once, I just did not like it. Too Sarah Brightman-ish for me, so no thanks!

Basic info: an amazing violinist, Cara Dillon's brother-in-law, a Mercury Music Prize nominee (for Kitty Jay).

I have been a fan of his since I first heard the violin in Cara's High Tide. I had a massive Kitty Jay obsession in the summer of 2004. It may not be everybody's cup of tea, but I love it: John Lomas, The Bold Knight, The Storm, The Ballad of Josie, and, of course, the title track.

I saw him play in November - without his band, just he and his violin - I had not seen such a powerful live performance before and I don't think I will anytime soon. I talked to him after the gig, he was extremely nice.

His new album Freedom Fields was released on the 20th. It is perhaps even better than Kitty J - his singing and song-writing skills have taken a giant leap.

My favourite Seth song is Captain's Court from his album with Steve Knightley (Show of Hands) and Jenna - Western Approaches.

:o Goodness, I sound like a total maniac! But the Dillons and the Lakemans are so talented!

yeah, i also thought i read that somewhere, but it's a long long while ago, and my memory is bad :lol:. still, it's a made-up language in a latin style it seems to me.
i don't know if they have a new album coming up. and as the 3rd album sounded like the 1st album, i lost a bit interest.

but something great as well are the german "Gregorians". they sing very famous pop songs in a gregorian hymn-style. "Losing my Religion" in that way makes me shiver (not because it's bad, folks! :mrgreen: )

Yep, I also got a bit fed up with Era as they seemed to release albums with so "samey" music, so that's why I only have Era, Era 2 and The Mass!

Yep, the group Gregorian Masters of Chant was also very popular here for some time, and the group even performed in Helsinki, but now the interest seems to have passed! I think that people lost interest similarly than what I did with Era, too samey songs album after album! Ha, and Gregorian have also recorded "Evening Falls" by Enya, quite an interesting version that is...!

If there is a male Eliza Carthy, it is her Ratcatchers, John Spiers & Jon Boden. Have you heard of them? They perform as a duo and with the band Bellowhead. If you like Eliza's Rough Music, you will likely enjoy their duo stuff too.
