♠   Eb & Sparrow is a genre–defying, five–piece folk band that has been gaining attention across the country from city bars to folk clubs, festivals to house concerts. ♠   They have supported Rodriguez, Pokey LaFarge, Beth Orton, Wagons, Delaney Davidson & Marlon Williams, The Warratahs, Anika Moa, Tami Neilson, and Aldous Harding.
♠   Eb & Sparrow’s new debut album, released through Home Alone Music, is self–titled and self–assured. The 10 song collection is built on — but far exceeds — their three preceding EPs as it takes the band’s paradoxically woven nature to new heights. ♠   These songs are proudly soaring and grounded, dark and bright, dreamy and direct, country and Spanish, 1850s and 1950s, delicate and propulsive, all the while lamenting and laughing.
♠   “We cast aching crescendoes of a time long gone, into a modern landscape” says singer and songwriter Ebony Lamb. Her impressionistic lyrics are imbued with a simple strength that comes from both heart and heartache. Her voice is unique — a cross between Cat Power and Gillian Welch and seems to resurrect an old–time soul into the here and now.
♠   Lamb has worked tirelessly at her craft with a band that has grown organically around her. Lap–steel, trumpet and electric guitars swirl colourfully above solid and sensitive rhythm playing, moving effortlessly between a country shuffle, a Tex–Mex croon, and a hazy hooning workout.
♠   Eb & Sparrow was recorded by award–winning Lyttelton producer and sound genius Ben Edwards (The Eastern, Delaney Davidson & Marlon Williams, Doprah, The Tiny Lies, Aldous Harding, The Unfaithful Ways, Luckless) at The Sitting Room studios.
Lyrics:
Quietly We Tread
I hear you talking far away
I am not here, far away
I hear your words ringing in my ears
But I am drifting from all of your air
Quietly we tread, quietly we tread on each other
Quietly we tread, quietly we tread on each other
For the highest wants, win the day
But the war is lost, along the way
We drive past the paper trees
Nothing is quite as it seems
All I know is for sure
That theres gonna be a change and an open door                                             //  Eb & Sparrow play The Common Room Hastings! Please don’t delay with presale tickets, last time this little gig sold out completely! After a successful national tour of their self titled album, Eb & Sparrow will keep touring till the cows come home.

Λ  In these post–modem times, it’s easy to be suspicious of throwback folk music with vaudeville era aesthetics. Eb & Sparrow suggest not a yearning for an imagined brighter past, but a desire to participate in a simpler, more humanistic way of life. — Martyn Pepperell, Vanguard Red Magazine. :: http://www.eventfinder.co.nz/2015/eb-and-sparrow/hastings
REVIEW
GARY STEEL, NOVEMBER 18, 2014 10:02 AM / SCORE: Sound = 3.5/5, Music = 3.5/5
Λ   IT’S ALL ABOUT the throat.
Λ   Ebony Lamb has a voice that refuses to just tumble effortlessly out of her mouth, but needs coaxing. She’s been compared to Gillian Welch, but a much better comparison would be Janis Joplin after a hard night of partying on Southern Comfort. Λ   Janis Joplin singing a hybrid of folk and alt–country, that is.
Λ   Lamb’s voice, when it does roll out, sounds hard won and packs an emotive punch, and it’s what makes EB & Sparrow’s debut special. That, and the fact that the music here sounds natural and time–worn, like just about everything recorded at Lyttelton’s The Sitting Room studios with producer Ben Edwards — someone, give this guy an award.
Λ   There are old–time jazz and blues inflexions here, together with flourishes that suggest, rather than genuine Tex–Mex flavourings, too much time spent listening to old Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass records. That anachronistic and rather annoying trumpet is the one major weakness on a debut that sounds like a band that have been playing the traps for decades already. — GARY STEEL
