about

The Your Elfin Foot LP is the debut release of Autumnal, a project of singer songwriter Richard Besley. A gang of Melbourne’s finest Classical, jazz and pop musicians have joined forces to create an exciting new folk sound.

Your Elfin Foot is a collection of beautiful folk inspired songs. Moving and personal, heartfelt lyrics rest on a lush arrangement of violins, marimba’s, harmoniums and mandolins with a few hooks and grooves thrown in by the pop meisters

Features Michael Barker (John Butler Trio), Joe Creighton (John Farnham, Kylie Minogue), Greg Arnold (Things of Stone and Wood) Rebecca Chan (Melbourne Symphony Orchestra), Dave Beck (Renee Geyer, Joe Chindamo)

Engineered and co-produced by David McCluney (Nick Cave, Vika and Linda, Things of Stone and Wood, Dan Brodie)

RECOMMENDED TRACKS: Nincompoop, Your Elfin Foot, Ache

Michael Barker’s percussion groove on the title track supports a tender song about coping with sensitivity in a harsh world – when your elfin foot sinks deep into this stinking earth will you hold your breath against the smog, brace yourself against the shock?

The sublime violin of Rebecca Chan is a sweet counterpoint to a song about the frustration and fear of isolation in Nincompoop

Ache is a bit of a tear jerker – a ballad of faded love with a heartbreaking violin solo
