Hey ho all! Just thought I'd better do a quick update in case anyone was worried I'd fallen down the back of the sofa...
I recorded a new EP! It's called 'Leave The Dark Low EP' and it was recorded in St Thomas A Becket church in Pucklechurch, Bristol... in less than an hour! It's one vocal, one guitar, pretty much one take all the way through. Very much done 'on the fly' with a bit of hasty live mixing by the wonderful Jake Lloyd Johnson, we got it done as quickly as we could while the awesome little church keeper lady pottered around polishing the pews (literally! I think you can actually hear her cough a few times and rustling a carrier bag at some point). It's not the cleanest recording I've ever done, but it's the one I'm most proud of as I feel it actually "captured" the songs how I wanted and is how they sit in their purest forms. I've put a couple of clips on my soundcloud but I'll link to it properly once it's been "launched" at my gig with Scott Matthews at the Colston Hall (Lantern) on 22nd April. Hope to see some of you there! (On that note, a quick recap of upcoming public gigs below) After the 22nd, I'll try and make sure I always take a few copies to gigs (available for any donation, as ever!) and in the future, I'll get it up on my Bandcamp page.
Tues 22nd April - Sam Eason supporting Scott Matthews @ The Lantern, Bristol
Sun 4th May - Sam Eason @ Nunney Acoustic Cafe, Nunney (Frome)
Fri 20th June - Sam Eason @ The Fleece, Bristol
Fri 4th July - Sam Eason @ Nibley Festival
Possibly another one to confirm in Swindon in June that is still TBC and I'm sure a few other things may crop up! As usual, my Facebook page is probably the best bet for keeping up to date :)
Hope you are well and beardy and joyous and things - massive hugs,
