Alana Jagt Swoons On her Latest Offering ‘Stars Of Napperby’

Smooth swooner Alana Jagt has revealed her brand new single, Stars Of Napperby. It’s taken from her forthcoming debut album, Goodbye Grote Bollen.

Stars Of Napperby is one for the lovers of fine dinner time, saloon-style folk music. Toe-tapping vibes meet the excellent storytelling vocal delivery of Jagt as she sucks the listener in with her captivating voice and fantastic songwriting.

A snap-shot of her youth, the track draws a storyboard of Jagt’s childhood home with the feelings and memories attached to the town.

Napperby is where I grew up, a small village on the edge of Wangyarra (Mount Remarkable) National Park in South Australia’s mid-north. There’s not much there, no shops and almost no light pollution at all. So the stars are spectacular. The song is a reflection of my time there, in awe of the sky and the ranges and the beautiful Napperby Gorge, and my feelings looking back at it all.” Alana Jagt.

Stars Of Napperby is a beautiful tune and a great snapshot into Alana Jagt’s songwriting ability; if you close your eyes while listening, you’re instantly transported to a small country tavern late at night. It’s available now, everywhere.
