“Ebony Lamb’s standing as one of the country’s coolest, most sultry voices” The Listener
On the back of their previous release Sun/Son (2015, Country Music Award Finalists for album & song 2016) Eb & Sparrow have gained national recognition and have become renowned for their self-carved niche and unique musical style in the ever- widening scope that is New Zealand Americana.
Seeing Things is written by front-woman Ebony Lamb and arranged by Eb & Sparrow, recorded in the historic homestead Ahiaruhe, in the heart of the Wairarapa January 2017, with Tui award winning producer and sound engineer Brett Stanton (NZ/Melbourne) who co-produced with the band. Utilising vintage recording equipment and instruments in the large wooden building to take advantage of the lush textures and presence, the band has pulled out all the stops.
The rhythm section, consists of new drummer Justin Barr (Golden Awesome) Chris Winter on bass, keys & trumpet, Ebony Lamb on electric guitar Gram Antler on electric guitar and bass & Bryn Heveldt on lapsteel.
