Original uplifting folk-pop music with a touch of the mystical.
The music is beautiful, enchanting, uplifting, technically impressive and extremely accessible. Faeland have audiences singing along and being moved instantaneously, regardless of whether or not you have heard their music before; there is something in the words and melodies which goes deeper than the everyday, touching on the mystical and the unspoken.
The songs are performed on acoustic guitars, double bass, accordion, banjo, charango, violins, lush vocals and Celtic harp.
Imagine the naturalness and earth of Martha Tilston combined with the instantly appeal of Fleetwood Mac, plus all the heart and sensuality of a modern day Kate Bush.
Faeland are a folk-pop band from Stroud & Bristol, UK. In 2018 Faeland founders Rebecca & Jacob took a professional leap of faith and released their debut album ‘All My Swim’. The album quickly gained support and acclaim from BBC 6Music, Uncut Magazine, Shire Folk Magazine, BBC Introducing and a host of others; acclaim of which is almost unheard of for a band’s debut release.

Her debut album, ‘Looking Out And After’ released 26.10.18 recorded and produced by Patrick Wood, has received airplay on BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio 6 Music and extremely positive acclaim. ‘An excellent and surprising album. Retro feel in places and contemporary in others, but always achingly hip and sophisticated’ Northern Sky Magazine. ’Opens in a dreamlike reverie that recalls Joni Mitchell’s Hejira album’ RnR Magazine.
