Ramon de Juan
Foot of film
Born in the Spanish Sahara. Raised in Benidorm next to the notorious Los Pelicanos nightclub, listening to Boney M, Neil Diamond and Miguel Bose.
Whilst the Brits flocked on the first package holidays to Spain to acquire bull fighting posters and sombreros, travelling in the opposite direction Ramon’s family landed in a post punk Thatcherite Britain; where amongst the decade’s misery, things were made a lot easier thanks to Adam and the Ants, Electro and a small piece of lino.
After witnessing three seminal gigs by the Stone Roses, Throwing Muses and the New Fads a guitar was bought, tuned and played…..
Ramon de Juan's assured debut album 'Foot of Film' is a subtle gem, infused with a rare emotional honesty. Transplanted from a childhood in the sunshine of Spain to an adolescence under the florescent lights of
Leeds , these songs grow from a different soil...
"Foot Of Film does not clamour for attention; instead, it draws you in almost imperceptibly with its diet of delicate strummery, patches of melancholy and whimsy and De Juan’s pure, beseeching tones."
Fiona Shepherd of the Scotsman
"Ramon works his listener through eight gently insistent songs of romance, human frailty and bitter-sweet melancholy with great tunes, naturally and seductively extruded from the warmest and most musically sensitive of hearts."
Sam Saunders in Whisperin and Hollerin
"It isn't rock and roll, but it could save your love life."
