The Gentle Good – Amser

For about 6 seconds there is complete silence, at which point ‘Amser’ gracefully jumps from the speakers. You’ll hear Nick Drake in the vocals, the svelt finger pickin’ and the lush instrumentation but this is no lost classic (a future one perhaps) it is the work of Cardiff singer Gareth Bonello. The remarkable thing is that Bonello as the Gentle Good remains unsigned and his only recorded output to date has been an EP from around 2005. Things seems to be progressing well on the debut album stakes but surely there must be a savvy label out there willing to push such high quality material. With heart wrenching songs like ‘Amser’ it would be a tragedy if Gentle was to pass unnoticed into that Good night. KD
