Wyatt Moss-Wellington – The Supermarket and The Turncoat

$20.00

Debut solo album from progressive folk songwriter Wyatt Moss-Wellington with intricate guitar work, arrestingly unique vocal performances, humanistic narratives, confessionals, humour and an experimental edge.

“Most guitar-strumming singer-songwriters are dull, and the rest tend to sound relentlessly like themselves, as though personal style outweighs universal substance. Wyatt Moss-Wellington turns that on its head, challenging preconceptions of song structure, guitar and vocal techniques, subject matter and stylistic homogeniety. Yes, there may be an element of the Sydneysider still searching for the real him, but much more prevalent is the rampant surprise as the listener is bounced between satire and aching tendernes, power chords and delicate finger-picking – sometimes all within one line! Moss-Wellington makes most of his peers sound like they have never fully considered the breadth of options open to them. An auspicious debut.” Review by John Shand.

Wyatt Moss- Wellington ‘The Supermarket and the Turncoat’

CD Review by John Williams

Wyatt Moss-Wellington is a Sydney based singer/songwriter who has travelled widely and incorporated many folk influences into his writing and performing.This is his debut album.Wyatt wrote all twelve songs on the album and they cover a wide range from love song, humour, life experiences, environment and political.All are accompanied by Wyatt’s sensitive guitar work to create an interesting listening experience.  He is not afraid to experiment with both voice and guitar and is also not afraid to tackle sacred cows.This makes for some interesting tracks.I enjoyed ‘Sydney Love Song’, the opening track.  Another favorite was ‘I come from Nepal’ about the life of a young man Wyatt met in Ecuador.The shortest, funniest anti car song I’ve heard ‘The Most Stressful Car in the World’ will make you laugh and might even turn you into a greenie who sells their car.‘The Turncoat’ is a powerful track inspired by the 2006 Israel/Lebanon War.‘Canterbury Eulogy 2006’ is a tribute to some of Wyatt’s musical heroes who died close together.It is a moving, personal song as you would expect.The CD ends with comedy and the title is enough to give you the idea, ‘James Blunt Is Stalking Me, He Keeps Singing To Me All the Time, He Thinks I’m Beautiful, Why Won’t He Go Away, James Blunt Go Away’.

Enough said!

This is a very diverse CD but all tracks are worth detailed listening.Wyatt Moss-Wellington has a unique voice which at times had me thinking of early Art Garfunkel in some of his quieter works.  Suffice to say it is a voice worth listening to.Wyatt Moss-Wellington is an artist with plenty of ability and lots to say.  I predict he will rise in the folk scene.  Get in on the ground floor and purchase this debut album. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
