Inspired by the American West, her music sits somewhere between the expansive melancholy of the desert and unique and distinct character of the far west. Fiona Walden’s resonant deep voice takes us on a journey. Often compared to Patti Smith, Fiona composes and writes with Saad Tabainet, an outstanding multi-instrumentalist.
After a first EP "WANTED" released in 2015, Fiona presents "Shoot Me Down", a taster of her upcoming debut album.
This album touches on the themes of freedom, wide open spaces and a hint of pioneer heroism.
Fiona has specially concocted a selection of music for Sessùn, her ideal playlist. She also agreed to answer a few questions.
