Hidden Shoal in Textura’s Ten Favourite Labels of 2018 List!

Hidden Shoal is incredibly honoured to have been selected as one of Textura’s Ten Favourite Labels of 2018. Textura is, in our opinion, the premiere new music magazine and favourite of the label team for unearthing and exposing new and exciting new music. This is the second time Hidden Shoal has been selected in Textura’s best labels list and as always we are nestled against some other very special labels, all of who you should check out. Now for a very brief and unnecessary acceptance speech – we are nothing without our incredible roster of artists, who continually amaze, inspire and surprise us.

Joe Sampson, Nathaniel Rateliff & Devotchka to Play Refugee Benefit

This is very exciting news! Our very own Joe Sampson is supporting Nathaniel Rateliff and Devotchka at a special refugee benefit at the Ogden Theatre, Colorado on March 23. A little birdy also told us that a certain Kramies may be joining Joe on stage for a few songs. I’d urge you to go if you’re in and around the area but the show has sold out!

Joe Sampson’s “Chansons de Parade” Out Now!

We’re excited to announce the official release of Joe Sampson‘s stunning new release Chansons de Parade, featuring the single ‘Wealth‘. The album is available now exclusively via BandCamp as a “pay what you want” and will also be available via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon et al later next week. Joe will be launching the album tonight (Dec 1st) with label mate Kramies in support at the Ubisububi Room in Denver The follow-up to his acclaimed EP Songs of Delay released earlier this year, Chansons de Parade is another exquisitely crafted collection of songs from Joe Sampson, with an uncanny ability to quietly get under your skin. While drawing from the musical spirit of Simon & Garfunkel, Iron & Wine, and Low, the songs on Chansons de Parade sound familial rather than familiar. Combining haunting yet playful lyrical narratives, a mesmerising road-worn baritone vocal, and a delicious melodic sensibility, these nine songs feel like long-term friends from the first listen. The music’s intimacy, gently lilting country slant and spacious, restrained instrumentation add depth and resonance to Sampson’s rustic folk influences.
