The Postmen are a geneva-based group consisting of four musicians who's ages range from 18 to 22 years old. Their compositions offer a variety of melodies in a Pop-Folk style. Largely influenced by music from the 60's and 70's (The beatles, The Mamas and the Papas, Crosby Stills and Nash, The Beach Boys, etc.) but also by more contemporary artists (Coldplay, Matt Costa, Jack Johnson), they make vocal harmonies one of the main foundations of their compositions.

Since their debut in 2008, they took part in over fourty concerts, including the Undertown, the Box and even the Vernier sur Rock music festival's launch contest where they finished second on eighty other registered groups.

The Postmen est un groupe genevois composé de quatre musiciens âgés de 18 à 22 ans. Leurs compositions offrent des mélodies variées dans un style Pop-folk. Largement influencés par la musique des années 60-70 (The Beatles, The Mamas and the Papas, Crosby Stills and Nash, The Beach Boy, etc.) mais aussi par des artistes plus contemporains (Coldplay, Matt Costa, Jack Johnson), ils font des harmonies vocales un pilier central de leurs compositions.

Depuis leurs débuts en 2008, ils ont participé à une quarantaine de concerts notamment à l’Undertown, au Box ou encore au tremplin du festival Vernier sur Rock où ils ont fini deuxièmes sur quatre-vingts groupes inscrits. Après une maquette en 2010, ils sortent leur premier album auto-produit « Desert of Joy » en avril 2012.

This is a really great album. The rhythm is very easy to follow, and very steady. The guitar is well played, and the cello adds a unique flair. The vocals are well crafted, well harmonized, and pleasing to the ear. I like it!

Folkrock im Stile der frühen 70er ist zur Zeit in verschiedenen Ecken der Welt wieder angesagt. So auch in der Schweiz. In Genf wohnen die vier Musiker von The Postmen, die jetzt ihre erste EP bei Jamendo vorgelegt haben. Satzgesang a la CS&N, ein paar Anklänge an die Beatles (wer eigentlich kann guten Gewissens behaupten, überhaupt nicht von ihnen beeinflusst zu sein?), Melancholie im Stil von Coldplay, Singer/Songwriter-Verwandschaft zu James Taylor kann man auch kaum überhören - eine traumhafte Mischung aus Folk und Pop bieten die drei Männer und eine Frau. Das ist sicherlich nicht unbedingt Hitparadenmaterial (hat man eigentlich wirklich Chancen, mit solcher Musik zur Zeit in die Charts zu kommen? Wahrscheinlich nicht, schade.), aber sehr schön und musikalisch auf hohem Niveau produziert. Wenn man mit solchen fünf Liedern seine erste musikalische Visitenkarte abliefert, kann man mit Fug und Recht für die nächsten Jahre noch viel von The Postmen aus Genf erwarten. Ich behalte sie jedenfalls auf der Liste.

Wow - this male singer has a gorgeous voice!! And with the wonderful acoustic guitar strumming, excellent cello, melodies, and lyrics this group should fly pretty high . . . I think their presence would be wonderful to experience live. "December" - with the gorgeous!! cello streaming into my ears and melting my heart including the beautiful lyrics, vocal . . . this extra special folk song became one of my favorites. But, that is not to negate the influence on my mood that the other songs had . . . I can't get over how extra beautiful that voice is . . . very soothing and like warm honey brings sunny gold into every song. . . Just listen to his expressive vocalizations in "Stolen Thief" with a nice lilt and perfect emotion . . . hmmm, I just loved it! I am expecting this pop/folk album to stretch up the charts on Jamendo . . . and become quite popular as other singers have become . . . M^^W PEACE

Ein Album, das bis ins Detail stimmig ist. Wunderschöne und melodiöse Titel, bei denen Musik und Stimme einfach super miteinander harmonieren.
