NEW ALBUM "SEEING THINGS" OUT 2018!
Eb & Sparrow are a genre-defying band not to be missed, having earned an enviable reputation amongst their contemporaries, critics and music fans alike. With an acclaimed album Sun/Son under their belts (2015) earning them a finalist position for both Album & Song at the NZ Country Music Awards and a touring legacy the country over, Eb & Sparrow brings the goods as an exceptional music group delving into the atmospheric realm of the human condition searching for hope through winding avenues of alt country, folk, indie and old time soul.
“This is the sound of your new favourite band” Simon Sweetman
Their live performances are a feast of warm melodies and impassioned ballads, tempered by foot stomping country-infused rock and roll. Whether delivering their own intricately crafted compositions, or breathing fresh life into long lost standards, Eb & Sparrow have wooed New Zealand audiences with their technical prowess and luscious multi-layered harmonies.
