"Not often do I come across a Kiwi band that with a single album moves from one to watch, to leaving every other contender in its wake" Dominion Post, Tom Cardy 4/9/15
"such beautiful warmth and fragility you're hooked from the first glide of lap steel to the last soaring, vocal phrase" New Zealand Herald, Lydia Jenkin 27/8/15
"Eb & Sparrow’s second full-lengther in little over a year cements Ebony Lamb’s standing as one of the country’s coolest, most sultry voices" The Listener, James Belfield 20/8/15
With an edge that harks back to old time jazz and blues singers' Ebony Lamb of Eb & Sparrow has led her band of talented men on a musical journey that began in 2010. They’ve traversed a pathway that has led them onto stages with an astonishing string of folk-heroes: Rodriguez, Beth Orton, Pokey LaFarge, Wagons, The Warratahs, Tami Neilson and Marlon Williams to name a few.
Eb & Sparrow have carved out a niche, creating a soundscape that is at once spacious and lush, nuanced alt-country music that swings out into folk, soul, and rockabilly. Ebony’s voice slides along the edges of Cat Power and Gillian Welch, and with a captivating presence, she delivers lyrics that dust off the truth to life’s hopes and heartbreaks.
