Splitting his time between a small village outside of Cambridgeshire, UK and Oslo, Norway, indie folk singer-songwriter Austin Basham recorded his inaugural release: the aptly titled Linton/Oslo EP. From the release came the standout hit “All Is Well”.
Basham’s 2018 album, recorded between Oslo, Norway, Vancouver, BC and Austin, Texas titled You And Me For Now, remains embedded in the folky, textural ethos he has always been drawn to in making music.
You and Me For Now oscillates from meditative to haunting through sparse chords and Basham’s husky vocals, layered with the glockenspiel, harmonica and horns. It’s about living as much as it is about overcoming.
