BEATING DRUM presents HEAR MY VOICE in a new collection of recordings produced by Piers Faccini and released in limited edition 12” vinyl, Beating Drum aims to carry the torch for an eclectic and innovative 21st century form of songwriting. Behind every beautiful song lies an original story and with this new series, the label aims to champion the cause of some of today’s exciting new voices.
For Hear My Voice, the label aims to give a platform to a select group of new and exciting artists the label encounters. Each Ep, beautifully conceived by house designer Uncle O will feature a portrait of the artist drawn by Piers Faccini. The first releases will feature three distinct voices, Gnut, TUi MAMAKi, and Horsedreamer.
TUi MAMAKi can thank her adventurous troubadour family for giving her a taste for sounds from far-away places. Born and raised in New Zealand, she ended up more recently, living and studying music in Bulgaria, having fallen in love as a young child with their traditional folk singing. Her four beautiful songs for the ep combine the odd meters and musical styles of traditional Bulgarian music with the English of her native New Zealand.
