On Sunday the 17th of July our special guests are Ebony Lamb and Jason Johnson of Eb + Sparrow.

Eb & Sparrow might hail from Wellington city New Zealand, but their heart and musical home is set firmly in the country.

With their pastoral, expansive ballads, rollicking good-time songs, and a few tear inducing torch burners thrown in for good measure, the five piece led by Ebony Lamb have been travelling up and down the country for the past three years. Slowly making their way to each and every town that’ll have them, they’ve been winning over New Zealand audiences not only with their songs, but also with their cheeky wit, oft hilarious tales, and dynamite performances.

The hard working band have been gaining a glowing reputation having opened for a string of international acts including folk star Beth Orton (UK), the sugar man himself Rodriguez (USA), and Pokey LeFarge (USA). Their constant touring has led them to perform alongside local legends including The Eastern, Marlon Williams, Delaney Davidson, and The Warratahs.

This first full lengther is a beautiful - if melancholy - sign of confidence

I was taken somewhere else, maybe somewhere close to Twin Peaks but via a small Parisian bar
