The recording was made a couple of months ago in Mark Ronson's Zelig studios where The Red Clay Halo and I recorded direct to vinyl via a link through to Gearbox Records' incredible mastering suite next door. Here's a video which sheds a bit more light on this antiquated direct-to-disc recording method and how we went about making the EP...
So why Songs Beneath The River? The four songs on the EP were chosen from the list we had put together of music that informed and inspired the writing and arranging on our album Dear River...
Tracklist for ‘Songs Beneath The River’:
1. Do Right Woman, Do Right Man
