Loney Dear & Tom Cooney

July 2, 2010

The first time we saw Emil Svanängen, aka LONEY DEAR, was at la Flèche d'Or, a Parisian venue, in 2006 , where he was wedged between the heavy guitar sound of JAI-ALAI SAVANT and the much-hyped VOXTROT. To begin with the audience was a little restless and uninterested, but, armed with just one guitar, the Swedish songwriter played a short and moving set and silenced everyone. Bravo, Emil!

Since then, thanks to his six albums (including 2009's very beautiful Dear John) we have discovered Emil's talent for subtle, crafted pop songs.
In the intimate surroundings of 7ème Ciel, this young multi-instrumentalist gave a very attentive audience a lovely evening.

Sounding like a cross between BELLE AND SEBASTIAN and RYAN ADAMS, that night TOM COONEY's melancholic songs travelled all the way from his native Australia to ring out across our rooftops in Paris. His music recalls an ideal type of folk: melodic and elegant.
Discovered in Paris along with JOSH T. PEARSON and H-BURNS in the West Country Session, he had been shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize a few years ealier. Tom previewed songs from his forthcoming album, The Repetition
