Q&A with Ralegh Long
Ralegh Long – is it your real name or alias?
Where are you from?
Originally just outside London, now London.
When did you start making music?
My first album Hoverance was released in 2015. Before that, I released a couple of now hard to find E.Ps.
How much time did you work on ‘Upwards of Summer’?
I guess a year all told. First sessions were Feb 2016. But the songs tend to develop in the back of my mind for a while, as does the overall idea for the record.
What music do you like to listen / favourite artists or bands (if you have) and influences
I like quiet folk music like The Innocence Mission and Nick Drake. But I also really like 8o’s / 90’s power pop. Some of my favourites are the DB’s and Let’s Active.
The last band/singer that you discovered, loved and in your opinion, people should listen to him/her/them
I think Northwest are very good and will go on to great things.
Tell a funny/sad/touching/motivating/whatever story from your life as a musician
Someone told me that they played my song ‘Love Kills All Fear’ just before they got married. Job done.
