Caoilian Sherlock - I'll Be A Fool For You
'I'll Be A Fool For You' is the first solo single, recorded with longtime friend and musical partner Robbie Barron. It's a melancholic love-lorn pop tune which decidedly places itself in the "anthem" section of the stoner folk aisle.
Sherlock embraces his inner troubadour on debut single 'I'll Be A Fool For You', whilst his distinctive voice is unmissable, the sound fostered here is markedly different to that of his band, The Shaker Hymn. You can easily visualise him walking off into the sunset on a midwestern highway with his axe slung over his shoulder. The blending of country tones and folk-rock work well side by side, musically we float in the space somewhere between Richard Hawley's Late Night Final and the Sheffield man's blues twangy guitar, and Dylan's 'I Threw It All Away'. Given Caoilin Sherlock's obvious embeddedness in old world music, and based on this debut single, it will be very interesting to see how his sound shines through on future releases.
