Devon Sproule has been on my itunes ever since seeing her performance of Old Virginia Block on Jools Holland a few years ago. Her mix of old time country, folk and charming melodies create unique sounds and captivating little worlds and stories.
On what had to be the coldest day of the year, we met Paul and Devon in our friend’s studio in Tulse Hill. Surrounded by sculptures of chimpanzees, with snow on the ground and no heating to speak of, these guys played some of our favorite sessions so far. The Evening Ghost Crab is taken from Devon’s latest album, I Love You, Go Easy, out on Tin Angel Records
We first heard Paul Curreri play when he supported Charlie Parr in Bristol back in November. His humorous songwriting coupled with mad guitar skills, dances between folk and blues, catching our attention from the first listen.

Big thanks to Sophie - the best (only) intern we’ve ever had.
We were introduced to Patrick Sweany’s music by a good friend a few years back, who has been booking his UK tours ever since a chance meeting at SXSW. So it was great to finally meet and listen to his songs completely stripped down. With previous albums produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, his music is a powerful mix of roots, blues and rock n roll.
We filmed this session the day before Patrick’s flight back to Nashville - Trekking across Epsom Downs at sunset with a pocket amp and a big baby blue Dean electric in search of the perfect tree to record a song under …and close enough to the pub to keep warm in! Shoestring is taken from his latest album, That Old Southern Drag.
