When I first heard Ren Faye’s voice, I was immediately reminded, dare I say, of the great Sandy Denny . Her folk influenced style and vocal timbre coupled with a Northern authenticity provide a new and exciting addition to this genre.
The lyrics for ‘Winters End’ are stand alone poetry worthy of analysis by any student of this art form and poignant at this time of year.
Winter’s End I don’t feel… Anything… I’m left here, at winter’s end
Friends, they all… Pass me by… All I need, is to find my winter’s end
It’s dark and I’ve no light Dark….ness, by my side… Tempting storms, Won’t keep me warm,
And all I want… Is a place I can call home and I… and I side by side You don’t know, you don’t know
No-one knows, When I am lost, The window pane,
Gives way to all the frost…
I’m here, and I come home to lay down weary in my bed and there is you… and there is you…
Winter’s End… Winter’s End…
