Introducing… Ephemerals

18 Sep

Ephemerals Stairs Straight At Camera SquareRemember last year when I wrote about the momentous album Hill Of Feathers by Hannah Williams and the Taste Makers? I actually can’t believe it was almost a year ago. It’s funny how things work out sometimes, If I hadn’t have been told by a friend about HW&TT I wouldn’t have written the blog post and I wouldn’t have met Nic or Jimmy Needles or known about Funkology and more to the point I wouldn’t have know that Nic was the composer of said momentous album or anything about his new music project ‘Ephemerals

Having got to know Nic over the last year it has become very clear that he doesn’t like to sit still. He’s always got several projects on the go and I don’t think he would have it any other way. So not being one to rest on his laurels or bask in the success of past projects, while HW&TT were on break for Hannah to Give birth to a beautiful boy (Congratulations Hannah) Nic set upon several new projects, one being writing a new soul album with a particular singer in mind. Nic met Wolfgang Valbrun when his band ‘Marvelous’ supported HW&TT on tour and since Nic was leaving the band to pursue further challenges and find another singer for his next half written soul album, This was the moment Nic he realised he didn’t have to look much further.

Nic set to work on finishing the album which was recorded at ‘Cow Shed Studio‘ and features an all-star soul cast of musicians from bands including Keke Mokoro, Gene Dudley Group, Dakhla, Kalakuta Millionaires, Marvelous & Bombs, and a strings session featuring the Cordicella’s who played on his tracks “Tell Me Something” and the breakout “Work It Out” as well as a session to record the lush backing vocals of Hannah Curtain of HWT.  Add to this blend Wolfgang’s effortless vocal delivery that glides and grits both simultaneously and you have quite a fantastically soulful sound to content with.

There is not a confirmed release date for the album as yet, but I for one am very excited to be able to witness the growth and development of this project from the off! Which brings me the the main point of this post. Ephemerals have hit the road to play there first tour and I am inviting you to be a part of the hype and join the wonderful community of musicians that I am blessed to be a part of. Bloggers, Press and Radio, Watch out because Ephemerals are about to launch!
