German singer/songwriter Ralf Dee takes a really interesting and alternative take on folk music as can be heard on his second album, Your Time Is Now.
The record is full of excellent musicianship as well as some extremely impressive vocals from the mercurial Dee. The music certainly has its roots set firmly in folk as can be heard on the wonderful A Couple Of Brews, however on tunes like Welcome To My Home Dee gives things a slight bluesy feel. Although there is a similar them throughout the album it manages to not sound monotonous and its tracks like the wonderfully understated Wayfaring Stranger that make such a good listen.
