Leeds based folkster (Joseph) Eaves has streamed ‘Spin’, the first taste of his debut album What Green Feels Like, due for release April 27th 2015 via Heavenly Recordings. The track, whose tenderness and nuance belies the singer’s youth, calls to mind the folk revival of the 1960s, and was recorded, along with the other eight tracks that consist of the album, at Voltaire Studios, London with producer Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar).
The LP is the follow up to the singer’s highly acclaimed debut As Old As The Grave EP, which was released in November of last year, and featured the wonderful ‘Alone In My Mind (For Mannington Bowes)’, a tribute to a London pensioner who was killed during the London Riots. His compositions on his debut LP promise to have similarly weighty themes. “My songs are very emotional and change dramatically. To perform them, I have to be in the zone. I remember where I was when I wrote them and why I wrote them,” explains Joe. “ I have to perform them in the way they were written; otherwise I’m letting myself and the audience down.”
