Leeds based, Bolton raised folk rock singer Eaves (aka Joe Lyons) has announced a gig at The Castle to take place on 7th May, just weeks after his debut album What Green Feels Like, is released (27 April – also the release date of his new single Pylons).
Having previously toured alongside Nick Mulvey, Boy & Bear, Slow Club, Philip Selway and most recently Rhodes, Eaves has announced details of his own headline tour, featuring the full-band line-up, in May.
Still in his early 20s and based in Leeds, having grown up on the other side of the Pennines, Eaves possesses a rare talent that belies his age. What Green Feels Like, his bold, ambitious, Buckley-channeling debut album, eloquently explores themes of place and time.
“I think a lot of it comes from my background. I grew up in Bolton in a family of seven. No family is perfect but it wasn’t the most comfortable environment. A lot of my imagery comes from that working class upbringing and things that were happening as I was growing up. Alcoholism, stuff like that. I’m distanced from it now, but now and again I will come back to it”
The full tour listing:
5 May – Glasgow, Berkeley Suite
6 May – Leeds, Belgrave Music Hall
7 May – Manchester, The Castle
8 May – Nottingham, Chameleon
9 May – Bristol, Louisiana
11 May – Brighton, Prince Albert
12 May – London, Sebright Arms
