Eb & Sparrow - Country / Folk / Indie / from little ol' New Zealand.
Think Gillian Welch meets Calexico & the Cowboy Junkies at an Indie concert.
Ebony Lamb - Songwriter,Singer, Guitar strummer, started writing the old fashioned way, with the love for country & a background of Indie & a wayward youth. Bryn Heveldt - Guitar virtuoso & friend of dear heart, recorded, played & gigged until the band grew to the current day five piece Alt Country outfit. With a solid reputation locally for lifting you to places far beyond the here & now, filled with laments of life in all the right ways, Eb & Sparrow tend to hit you in the heart, no matter which field of the musical plane you identify with. From their humble beginnings in a homemade studio, they will release their first full length album from award winning studio 'The Sitting room' based in Lyttelton Christchurch. Ebony's unique voice layered over honest songwriting are the essence of the band, with stories twisted around Bryns spanish guitar & lap steel. Jason Johnson on his immaculate bass lines & vocal harmonies, Nick Brown on the ever expanding drum, percussion section & Mr Winter who soars with a trumpet like you never heard, followed by occasional electric guitar.
