Introducing Almost Autumn

almost-autumn, singer, musicianWhen the weather is cold and Christmas songs are played on repeat almost everywhere you go, sometimes, all you want is something fresh, exciting and a little different to listen to. Luckily, I have the perfect antidote to cure your winter music blues - say hello to Almost Autumn.

Almost Autumn is the performing name of Joelle-Marianne, an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Liverpool, UK. At the tender age of just 20 years old, Joelle is in her final year of studying towards a music degree, an impressive feat considering the high quality of her songs already.

Working primarily within the pop, folk, and indie-acoustic genres, Almost Autumn is an audio diary project, recording Joelle's daily life from a musical perspective and documenting the student experience from a whole new angle. Love, lust and heartbreak are just a few of the signature themes, set against a shining city backdrop to a classic, feel-good pop melody and catchy lyrics. It's fresh, it's different and it's unique - the perfect way to stave off the cold winter weather.

It's clear that Joelle is certainly no stranger to the music scene, appearing in various bands and projects throughout the North-West music circuit for over seven years. She won her place at the prestigious Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts after appearing live on BBC Introducing and from there Almost Autumn was born.

Perhaps even more remarkably, each and every track was recorded from the confines of her student flat in Liverpool city centre, a fact which only further contributes to the homegrown student-led feel of the music.

Almost Autumn's debut release is 'A Little More', the perfect soundtrack for the transition between autumn and winter. It's simple and sweet yet memorable in all the right ways, serving as the ideal introduction to her sound as we enter the New Year.

You can find Almost Autumn on YouTube and Bandcamp, or to catch up with Joelle herself, follow her on Facebook.
