Kev Walford-Discography 2007-2021
This was my 1 st recording of original material for many years. Recorded in 2006 in Henley ,Suffolk by Mike Briggs. Far Cry were me, Daren Brown-vocals and Andy Bannan-vocals and guitar... Andy and I had met when we were both playing folk clubs in Suffolk and I loved his voice and playing style, so we began to gig together for a while.

(a slightly different version of this cd was released a little later with fewer tracks and the opening song was replaced by "Half Awake"-that was called "Far Cry-The Secret Sessions"-put together by Andy Heasman in 2008)
"7 Songs For 7 Sisters" Recorded by Andy Heasman with Kev Walford, Reb Capper, Andy Bannan ,Daren Brown and Neil Morley-Cello A 7 track c.d. Strange number of songs but I wanted to use that title!!

7: Snakes and Water
Ine 2010 Andy Heasman and I recorded a Live e.p.with some of our most popular songs from our gigs, as we were keeping pretty busy back then!!! Tracks included "No Eden Here" and "My, My, My". This project unfortunately never saw the light of day.
A promo single for U.S.A. and Canada recorded in 2012 by Paul Nicholas, video filmed by Adrian Birtwell and backing by John Clarke formely of Romford. During this same period Reb and I also recorded 2 tracks for BBC Introducing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of the 1 st Beatles album in 1962. Local artistes were allocated songs from that album to re-record in their own style-we were given "Misery"....Reb had never heard it before, so she did her own thing-just voice, piano and guitar....absolutely beautiful, and I still live in hope that Backwater records will properly release this soon!!!!

An interesting project using a basic band of me + David Booth plus Reb Capper and Graeme Tunnock. We then brought in a 10 piece vocal back-up band to sing the choruses and refrains and make the songs more anthemic. A lot of fun to make!!

Kev Walford + Mark S.Walford
1: Harvest Home
2: Medicine Man
3: Daddy Was A Pegleg Sailor
5: Shake The Devil Down
6: Witches Breath
Recorded during "lockdown" at home with my son Mark. I had 1 brand new song and 4 that hadn't made it to previous recordings for one reason or another. Mark's managed to capture a different side of me on this batch of toons. (As a matter of interest Mark is a very prolific writer using a keyboard/Native instruments samples and Ableton) We do intend to expand on this work in the fullness of time, but at the time of writing I'm currently in an uncreative abyss!!!!!et
So, about this Lockdown business.....Don't know about you, but it's left me in a strange place. We haven't gigged for ages and I really miss that whole social side that goes with that. I have a major Birthday coming up this year, and am now seriously thinking about no longer recording/writing/performing in my own right. It is sometimes an uphill struggle, and I'm thinking of just continuing as a backing musician to other artistes as I do that pretty well and think that perhaps stopping or at least taking a break from the creative side might be a good thing to do. I'll have to get back on that one as I'm just kicking it around at the mo. KEV XX
