'People Like You', by Lost Parade: Music Review
People Like You is the new album out today, November 1st, by Dublin based group Lost Parade. You may not have heard of them here in Donegal and the North West, but once you do, you will listen again and again. Check them out on Soundcloud for a snippet.
The album is available now on iTunes, Google Play, Rhapsody, Rdio and many more online sites. You can also buy the CD from the bands website, www.lostparademusiccom
Lost Parade have been together since 2006. They have performed live on Today FM’s “Ray D’arcy Show” , RTE Radio 1′s “John Murray Show” and “Pat Kenny Show”, Shannonside FM and East Coast FM. The band have supported artists such as Damien Dempsey and Sharon Shannon and have played on stages including The Olympia Theatre, Vicar Street and Dolans.
This new collection consists of 10 tracks and each one is so different that it’s impossible to choose a favourite. All the lyrics are written by lead vocalist Martin Staunton. It has a real bluegrass/folk and at times traditional feel to it from start to finish. On first listening to the new single ‘Canada’, I couldn't help but imagine I was listening to a young Bruce Springsteen. Martins voice is deep but wonderfully evocative. The backing band are exquisite musicians which you will hear on listening. This is a sound which will appeal to all ages and musical tastes. Go check this music out and see for yourself. You really won’t be disappointed.
Lost Parade consists of brother and sister, Martin and Emma Staunton. The band is led by Martin on vocals and guitar and accompanied by Emma, (backing vocals, saxophone), James Kemp (bass), Sebastian Jezzi (drums, backing vocals), Roberto J.J Leto (slide guitar) and Grainne Foster (violin and piano).
