More on the acts...

If the measure of a true artist is their inability to stand still then Ethan Johns easily fits the bill. Having achieved the upper reaches of success as a producer (Ray Lamontagne, Kings of Leon, Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Laura Marling) the artist's voice inside Johns' head could not be quieted. His first solo record, If Not Now,Then When?, released in Summer 2013 was received with acclaim by fans and critics alike. According to the venerable Bud Scoppa, "The results are so convincing the only question is what took him so long?"

For his subsequent record, Johns trades places behind the glass with long-time friend and collaborator Ryan Adams. The Adams-produced album, The Reckoning, was born on tour in the UK, Europe, and the U.S., inspired by the landscapes of the countryside and snippets of life in each stop along the way. "I'd rather learn about the world by traveling than by picking up the newspaper everyday" says Johns. The songs rally around themes of action and consequence, musings on the effects of individual choices and how to navigate the uncertainty of life. The Reckoning is a collection of stories in song, captured in the moment. The Reckoning is slated for a Summer 2014 release.

Support at this show will be coming from the wonderful Eaves

Leeds based artist Joseph Lyons aka Eaves has swiftly evolved from self-releasing a bunch of demos online into providing one of the most engaging live sets taking place in London, supporting the likes of Nick Mulvey, Slow Club and Keaton Henson.
