Paradise FoundParadise Found is an ever growing, ever changing folk/electronica collective of like-minded musicians.

Primarily a guitar and vocal group that focus on simple layered melodies with attention to space and harmony, the group was created by Sylvan Heally and Theodore Smith – two gardeners, artists, music lovers and storytellers who spend most of their time at home with friends, partying and living a river garden lifestyle and making music.

This talented duo recorded their self-titled debut album in the front room of their idyllic home. The album explores themes of letting go of pain and embracing joy, with lyrical content that takes its influence from different ideologies and folklore.

Songs such as Did You Laugh Today and The Joy are reminders that it’s better to be in a state of happiness than anger. Tick The Box suggests that we sometimes carry the weight of the world on our shoulders when it’s better to let go and concentrate on enjoying what’s in front of us.

Paradise Found’s songs follow a similar format, made using simple guitar loops and layered vocals, with building rhythms and drifting ambiances dashed with electronica, imaginatively presented with contemporary arrangements.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself falling into a daydream whilst listening to Paradise Found, for you are almost certain to transcend to a state of meditative peace when listening to their music.
