“Tanbark began in 2011 as a long-distance songwriting collaboration between Chloe Nelson, who was studying art history in London, and James Jannicelli, a musician in Minneapolis. By 2012, they were both in the Twin Cities, where their country and folk-inspired songwriting and close vocal harmonies began to form the basis of their sound.

“In 2014, Tanbark headed to Los Angeles to team up in the studio with Trevor Welch. Their resulting debut, “Write Soon,” brings together the bareness of the duo’s acoustic folk sound with a fuller, pedal-steel-and-Telecaster country sound.

“After relocating to New York City later in 2014, Tanbark quickly found their place in the thriving Brooklyn music scene. The material for their next album started to come together, and they enlisted engineer and musician Sam Owens (Sam Evian, Cass McCombs) to help bring it to life.

“The resulting nine songs explore themes of innocence and desire against a Laurel Canyon backdrop of pianos and guitars. Nelson’s rich, delicate vocals anchor the sound as the arrangements move between Fleetwood Mac-pop and Neil Young-folk. The album TANBARK was released on May 31, 2019.”

“Aldora Britain Records is an e-zine and record label that promotes the music and work of authentic independent or underground artists from all around the world. Originally established in 2013, they revamped themselves in 2018 with a brand-new approach. Their first weekly compilation, aptly titled THE SECOND COMING, was released in late 2019. They now also release original singles, EPs and charity projects.”
