EP Launch Invite – Jo Bywater Chasing Tales EP

I’ve been excitedly preparing for this date and here it is! I would like to invite you to my EP launch and latest installment of new and original music.

Date: 27th Sept. 2013 @ View Two Gallery, Liverpool.  I’m very pleased to be doing the launch with the award winning Liverpool Acoustic.  The line-up is amazing – Little Sparrow, Me & Deboe, Anna Corcoran and Me (plus special guests).

In order to buy tickets in advance head to: http://www.wegottickets.com/liverpoolacoustic you will see the event with my name attached.

The EP is also in collaboration with Searching For Dandelions (www.SFDRecords.com) label/collective

Chasing Tales is Acoustic Blues slide guitar meets finger-picking brain food. Raw and finely-crafted beauty with a dark twist, soothed with harmonies, melodies and textures. A worthy follow-up to 2010 album Cycle Grace Pulse Break in creative growth. The EP features guest performances from Andy Jones (Just by Chance) and Blythe Cooper and was mastered by Russell Cottier (Parr St. Studios). It is released in collaboration with Searching For Dandelions Label/Collective. Cover Artwork by Jo Bywater. The first review for the EP has been provided by Ian D. Hall for Liverpool Sound and Vision: http://www.liverpoolsoundandvision.co.uk/2013/09/04/jo-bywater-chasing-tales-e-p-review/ Chasing Tales will be available from CD Baby, Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes and at shows. There are limited CD copies available to buy at shows and online.

It would be a pleasure if you could join us at the launch! For those not able to I hope you enjoy this next chapter of my creativity 🙂 for updated info go to http://www.jobywater.com.   Jo x

‘This Garden’ a song to bring in summer – free download

Hi all,

Well for as much as I’ve been having a hibernate and writing lots so far this year I also appear to have done much! 2 new songs under my belt all good and strong: Last month I set free ‘Woollen Hearts’ into the ether and this month I have my newest ‘This Garden’.

I had a play around with some new textures on this one and added some harmonies and a sprinkling of flute, thanks to my fab Blythe Cooper.   The song is about having somewhere that brings you back to your recharged state.  Somewhere that reminds you of home (where ever that is) and who you are when things my shake you away for a bit.  I wrote this on my newest acoustic guitar (Taylor 314) and as it was crying out for some finger-picking that is exactly what happened.  The guitar has been beautiful to play on and I’m very much looking forward to doing much more writing on it 🙂

You can listen to the song here! It is a free download at the moment so feel free to sing along, upload it to your Ipod etc….

Over the last month I did my first gig at Threshold Festival, Liverpool and was filmed over the weekend by Addistock and Liverpool Live TV performing Woollen Hearts.   You can see both of these vids on my Videos page.   I had a wonderful review of my gig thanks to Ian @ Liverpool Sound and Vision. 

For April….well,  tomorrow I head to finish my session with Addistock by playing a cover song that will be revealed soon enough 🙂 I shall also be live on The Tillerman Show (www.liverradio.co.uk) 4pm – 6pm from The Lomax, Liverpool.

More updates to come soon! 🙂 Until then enjoy the music and create!

See you soon

Jo x
