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”

5 May   –   Glasgow, Berkeley Suite
6 May   –   Leeds, Belgrave Music Hall
7 May   –   Manchester, The Castle
