FoldingLights releases its debut EP 'Exiles' on 26th May 2017 with 7Core Music. The album features first single 'Fear The Night' which is also accompanied by a music video (see below).
Desperate to add some of his colours to the madness of this world, Michael Peter Ball the artist behind FoldingLights has dedicated himself to crafting music that cuts straight to the centre of the soul. He writes with vulnerability, honesty and heart, which is reflected here on his debut 7Core Music EP 'Exiles'. From the soaring uplifting chorus's of 'Fear The Night' and 'Rebuild' to the darker mood of 'Noose' and the more intimate 'Let My Head Decide', Michael proves himself to be an artist of the highest calibre.
Taking musical influences from fellow Irish bands like The Frames, Snow Patrol and Foy Vance, Michael writes about faith, love, death and everything in between. He has performed with many artists throughout his homeland of Northern Ireland including Nathan Jess and Martin Smith.
Drawing inspiration from God, Poets and Scholars alike, he is equally at home performing on the stages of music venues around his native Belfast as he is leading worship in his home church. The intensity of his songs are born from the tension of the sometimes bleak, yet ever beautiful Irish landscape.
FoldingLights is an artist capable of creating a soundscape worthy of audience escapism. If you catch a show then you may understand why.
