If you love great songwriting and storytelling, youâ€™ll love this double EP launch from folk/country artist Will Purdue and alternative multi-instrumentalist Liza Bec.
Fresh from releasing wistful, bluesy duet â€˜Parisâ€™, Lizaâ€™s pure soprano and Will's brooding Cohen-esque baritone soar over their six piece band, transporting you to another time and place.
Liza and Will share a love of songs as stories. Willâ€™s EP â€˜Rumour & Confessionâ€™ is a collection of tales inspired by the great sixties folk singers, with a raw and direct lyrical honesty and power. Liza brings her own unique fusion style to â€˜Beyond the Blondeâ€™ â€“ think Portishead with added recorder and sax. Her thrilling short story of the same name is included as an insert to the limited edition 12â€ vinyl EP.
They have collaborated with visual artists Catalina Velasquez G (Father John Misty), Dan Tombs (Gold Panda, James Holden), Anabel Hazeldine and David Ryder Prangley to create stunning artwork and AV for the launch.
'Hugely talented....(Lizaâ€™s) voice was truly unique, and when you added her abilities on the saxophone, keyboard and recorder to the mix.... you had a potent combination.' -TeamRock
'Joyous....ecstatic, burbling (recorder) improvisations' -The Guardian
