The Fruitful Earth Release 'The Fruitful Earth' Ep Out June 2nd 2014

On June 2nd South London-based band The Fruitful Earth release The Fruitful Earth EP. Following on from their second longplayer 'Rising Sun', the EP features new tracks 'Firebird' and 'Honey Bee'. The tracks were recorded in Albury Court Studios, Deptford, and produced by front-woman Sarah Blair in collaboration with Andrew J Jones, whose production CV includes fellow local heroes Squeeze.

The EP merges the spirit of late 60/70s-style classic rock and singer songwriters with Sarah Blair's endearingly esoteric songwriting and masterful piano chops. An enthralling and flamboyant listen, they channel the spirit of greats like Rickie Lee Jones, Judee Sill, Jackson Browne, Randy Newman and 'Tumbleweed Connection'-era Elton John.

The dramatic and rock-laced 'Firebird' kicks-off proceedings with rousing Zeppelin-esque screams and the soulful 'Sometimes You Just Don't Know' takes a reflective turn; while the punchy strutting 'Honey Bee' and 'Live It How You Got To' oozes rock n soul swagger.  

Goldmiths graduate Sarah Blair originally specialised in classical composition and through her passion for other music (especially Bowie and The Stones) formed The Fruitful Earth.

Following a revolving personnel over the last two albums, the line-up is now cemented; joining Sarah to take the album on the road will be the killer live combo of David Gordon on bass (who has played with Julian Lennon & Canned Heat), plus Daniel Mayers on drums.

The EP features former Koot and Lea Shores slide guitarist Jamie Spencer Smith (who has worked with Morcheeba and Sonny J), Ben Ellis on bass, Gabor Dornyei on drums and Andrew J Jones on percussion (also known for his work with The Shortwave Set).

'Sometimes You Just Don't Know' and 'Live It How You Got To' (taken from their debut) were engineered and mixed by Vasken Arslanian at Iguana Studio.  The songs feature Gabor Dornyei on drums, Johnny Copland on bass, Andrea Terrano on guitar and Sarah Blair on piano and vocals.
