“Every Home needs a Maelor in it” Dan Donnelly (The Wonder Stuff/Levellers/Celtic Social Club)

I like what this guy does…”The Lovechild of The Levellers and Billy Bragg” – BBC Introducing


Maelor and his wife Chantelle did the most stunning cover of the Levellers’ track “Elation” for the charity album “Bostin’ Days”. This album was released to raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance.


Maelor’s song writing is varied and interesting; he’s very hard to categorise. Folk with great classical / Spanish guitar influences underneath, the introduction to Maybe Over Time is very Segovian.
The haunting melodies of Morning Sun tell of his emotions when touring and missing his young son. These contrast with ‘Milltown Boy’ which is an upbeat anthem to his home town.
Clearly luck plays a big part in who becomes famous and who doesn’t as Maelor has everything Ed Sheeran has, and much more…
except the radio and T.V. play…
…and possibly the bank balance.
