E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like – Calming River

Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Joshua Malcolm aka Calming River. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the magic atmosphere of his music.

What fantastic atmospheres this talented artist proposes…

Beautiful, research, refined music that manages to speak to the heart and soul.

Music capable of making you travel with your thoughts and make you imagine beautiful worlds.

While listening to these songs I felt part of nature and the piano made me feel like a drop of water falling into the ocean, I felt part of the universal harmony.

Beautiful arrangements and execution, the sounds used were recorded to perfection and you can hear the soul of every single instrument.

The chord progression and melodic construction have no weak points and the songs flow and breathe well.

Impeccable production and especially the mix that leaves the right space for each sound element.

A great discovery that I highly recommend to everyone.

Jejune / For Edward is Calming River’s double-A single Out Now!

Marvelous Music!


Alt-folk songwriter Joshua Malcolm, aka Calming River, has always swam against the mainstream in delivering a darkened and moody atmosphere, predominately through the use of fingerpicked guitar.

Largely influenced by the haunting writing of Skip James, Nick Drake, Elliott Smith and Bert Jansch, to name but a few, Malcolm teamed up with Aarhus-based producer Rasmus Nielsen and Copenhagen label Dendron Records to deliver numerous singles and EPs (2014-19).
