After a great month with our Adelaide friends and family in our first home, full of live shows and time on the radio, we’ve returned to Southampton with our last few hard copy CDs in our luggage, ready to pass on to local friends and radio.
If you’ve missed out on a hard copy, don’t worry – the EP is on Bandcamp and all your usual music streaming services, so you can easily grab an electronic copy.
Before we left Adelaide we were lucky enough to chat with Kym-Maree on The Local – SA and share our music at a few more intimate family events and the wonderful and always welcoming Hindmarsh Tiers open mic. You can listen to the podcast of our interview on The Local here: https://www.mixcloud.com/TheLocalSA/interview-with-sarah-and-lloyd-from-feathers-wood-n-string-on-the-local-sa-27-dec-2018/?fbclid=IwAR1XDWXDp13aSoHiaRenUnmcHbckyPcv9WiE2R2QYIrDyAuifsil2jpba2A
Plus, we managed to squeeze in an absolutely awesome photoshoot with our dear friend and amazing artist Emily McAllan, so you might have noticed our profile pictures and banners getting a much-needed update!
So what next? Well, we’ve already started thinking about an EP for 2019, with ideas stacking up in Lloyd’s loop pedal and pages scrawled with topic ideas. Plus, having worked out acoustic versions of some of our tracks for Adelaide open mics and family events, and heard once or twice that a few other venues might have us if we had an acoustic set for them, we’re thinking of simultaneously recording an acoustic EP this year. This will be a whole new mixing world for Lloyd, so yet again he’s set to start on a steep learning curve.
We’re also on the lookout for charity events we could contribute to, support gigs and other opportunities to start to play live in our second home in Southampton, and local acts in both our hometowns that we can mutually encourage and support. If you know of something happening that we don’t know about yet, do give us a shout, and if you have a great local rock band we should check out, send us some links!
‘Til next time – keep enjoying indie music!
🙂 Sarah and Lloyd.
