Made on a shoestring, Distance is the debut album from The Jonathan Stafford Band. With their roots in the small coastal towns of South East Cornwall, the wild, beautiful surroundings inspire a poetic and mesmerising new sound. These five young musicians weave together a compelling soundscape, with each composition inviting the listener into a musical diary/realm of emotion.
Jonathan Stafford’s haunting acoustic-folk music and the delicate innocence of Corinna Elleschild’s guest vocals contrasts well with the hard-core/metal background of Tom Bromley, Phoenix Elleschild and George Martin, contributing towards a raw and energetic live show.
Described as a ‘singer songwriter of exceptional talent’, Jonathan Stafford’s vocal elasticity, song craft and meticulous arrangements are a breath of fresh air in an increasingly overly manufactured industry. He was offered a ‘scouted audition’ for BBC 1’s The Voice in June 2013 but declined the offer to appear on the show preferring instead to focus on his own compositions.
