A project that wouldn’t have come to pass without lockdown or Covid-19, The Foolks are a powerhouse of musicians.
Banded together over their mutual love for music, they have channelled inspirations ranging from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Stooges to bring us ‘The Most Beautiful Queen‘. The first song on The Foolks upcoming self-titled album, ‘The Most Beautiful Queen‘ is set for release August 10th.
With tones and melodies akin to The Rolling Stones, ‘The Most Beautiful Queen’ discusses the idea of second chances. An opportunity to try something again after failing.
“Everybody can achieve their dreams, even if you are down in life. You need to pick yourself up, brush yourself down and strive towards the path of a better life.”
With a powerful guitar riff pushing the song along the entire way through, this track features a beautiful melodic bass adding depth and volume. This is paired perfectly with a jazz-filled drum beat that provides lift to allow soulful and punchy vocals to promote the track’s message.
A project forged in the flames of a pandemic, The Foolks wouldn’t have existed without Covid-19. A reflection of the world’s current situation, their name is based on a combination of the words “folks” (people) and “fool” (crazy).
Formed by French Producer and Songwriter Emmanuel Dron, The Foolks is an elite group of musicians consisting of lead vocalist Jamie Wiltshire, guitarist Emmanuel Dron, drummer Andrew Picha and bassist Charles Berthoud.
With an abundance of music experience between them, The Foolks have overcome the barriers of Covid-19 and worked from around the globe to create a lockdown project unlike any other.

Hey there, I listened to The Foolks: The Most Beautiful Queen. Your review was that it was “akin to The Rolling Stones”, kinda, harmonically there is some resemblance but this sounds very rehearsed like it’s someone’s first recording. It’s very stiff in rhythm. It is exact in its presentation but flat it personality. It would’ve been nice to just hear this live off the floor and raw. However, good on you guys for doing something!
