Calming River - 'The Actress Pt. II'
Wednesday, September 2, 2015
Calming River is the stage name of British songwriter Joshua Brain.

Delicate and tender, his alternative-acoustic songs shine a melancholic light within a dark and brooding atmosphere. Intricate fingerpicking, numerous tunings and reflective, somber lyrics generate an intimate and beautiful aesthetic, complemented by the harrowing violin of DJ Alvaro Takt (Cassetta Records).

In 2014 Brain released his seven track debut ‘Afflict and Redeem’. To date the EP has caught the attention of numerous radio stations, fanzines and reviewers. Now living in Denmark, the release of Joshua Brain's debut has coincided with numerous shows in country's two biggest cities —Copenhagen and Aarhus. In Autumn 2015, after a summer of live performances, Calming River releases a new four track EP, titled ‘The Ones That We Left Behind’. The record, which was recorded and produced in Aarhus, sees the artist continue his collaboration with DJ and violinst Alvaro Takt.

'The Actress Pt. II' and 'Art Of Wine' can be heard during The #NewMusic Show. 'Art of Wine' debuts at #8 on the Top 10.
