10 OF THE BEST FROM THE LONDON LABEL.

Way back in the summer of 2006, a bunch of like-minded musicians got together in a West London basement bar. Among those musicians in the Notting Hill Arts Club were members of bands like Mumford and Sons and Bear’s Den, who would go on to dominate what some have called the “new-folk” scene. Soon, a monthly gig night grew into a label, a publisher and a fully fledged concert promotions squad who have put on shows in 70 capacity bars and 10,000 seater arenas. Last week we brought you the latest single from Michael Kiwanuka, one of many new artists on the Communion roster. Past successes have seen acts such as Catfish and the Bottlemen and Gotye put out records on the label. To celebrate their 10th birthday we’ve put together ten of our favourite tracks from the more folky end of the spectrum. We hope you enjoy these acoustic cuts and look forward to another ten years of great records.
