Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The Celadors. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the vibes of their music.
The Celadors offer us refined music that runs on well-constructed melodies able to entertain the listener from the first to the last second, keeping you glued to the speakers.
The singer’s voice with its high and decisive timbre is accompanied by a very tight rhythm section.
Very nice second voices that often play in Counterpoint give even more pathos to these fascinating melodies.
The strings intervene at the right moment making the emotions grow even more.
Heartfelt music that comes from the soul because this is a band that has many things to say and wants to spread a message to the world.
We have to talk and confront ourselves because things in the world are not going well, maybe we are not on time anymore but at least we should try. This is what The Celadors are screaming…let’s listen to them and follow them.
A mature band ready for the masses.
Too Little, Too Late is The Celadors’ Single Out Now!
Beautiful music with great meaning!
Quote: “There is a climate emergency and it’s up to us to make some noise about it. If we in the arts have a message to put to people, we mustn’t hide behind layers of metaphor. We need to act. We can’t be vain. There’s no music on a dead planet…
In a world of fake news, fixation with celebrity & a clamour for your attention from social media, The Celadors bring you songs you can relate to from down-to-earth musicians. Yearning vocals, melancholy lyrics which soothe & undulate between light & dark, and accomplished musicianship that puts an arm around your shoulder & tells you everything’s going to be alright.
With well-crafted songs & a warm stage presence, the band were popular on the Manchester gig circuit in the 2010s with a growing following of fans who knew the words to every song. A health scare for pianist Andrew Smith followed by the tragic loss of bassist Mark Jackson saw the band step away from the music scene for a while.
Now, reconnected, they’re ready to perform again. Lead singer, guitarist & songwriter Jack Norbury writes about relationships frayed around the edges, mental health struggles & loss, but the music often juxtaposes smoothly with the weight of the words & emotional draw of the vocals. Andrew Smith brings lush, classically trained piano skills & stirring string arrangements; Stuart Bullock brings distinctive backing vocals and adds colour & depth with lead mandolin, percussion & trumpet; drummer Si Peddle gives the band a raw energy & live feel with his unique style; while the band are further enriched by the soaring violin strings of Emma Scotchmer.
Covering genres from folk to indie to alternative rock – at their core, they play unpretentious songs you can feel & connect with”.
