“It’s always great to discover an unknown gem. Kramies is a Dutch-American singer-songwriter who lives in Colorado, and gained some fame through his well-received EP The Wooden Heart, which was produced by Jason Lytle of Grandaddy. On his new EP, he plays at the Grand Théâtre in the Angers (France) in front of seven hundred fans.
With just an acoustic guitar and his voice, Kramies performs intimate, dreamy songs. With only a guitar and a voice, it is of course not possible to hide behind all sorts of sounds and effects. The result is quite naked, but because of this his class floats upwards. Kramies has a warm and mature voice that catches your attention. Sometimes he reminds me of The Waterboys, Sophia or Jasper Erkens. This musician brings five songs on this EP, only The Wooden Heart is less impressive, but the other four tracks are top songs!
A fine EP for people who love folk or dreampop and it’s even free on Bandcamp.”
