Calming River

Intimate alt-folk Calming River is the pseudonym of songwriter Joshua Malcolm. The name may conjure tranquillity but there has always been an opposing tide of dissolution and strife flowing against a delicate wave of fingerpicked guitar. Calming River’s previous EP releases (2014's Afflict and Redeem and 2015's The Ones That We Left Behind) have been widely appreciated by folk circles, including a feature in the UK's Unsigned Guide and numerous radio plays across Europe. In 2017 the artist released singles For The Echoes To See and Anniversary, before a host of gigs in Denmark and the UK.
