Ethan Johns with The Black Eyed Dogs in the Benelux next week14-03-2019
Ethan Johns an artist, songwriter & record producer who has worked with Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Kings of Leon, Joe Cocker, Tom Jones, Emmylou Harris and Laura Marling. Ethan is also a fully-fledged front man in his own right, with an unbelievable band and a growing back catalogue of brilliant records: The Black Eyed Dogs.
“I was in some kind of mystic haze/Man I couldn’t see straight,” sings Ethan Johns on the meditative Jackie Lee, coming on like Bob Dylan after a heavy night of Holy Mountain and heartache. At once intensely personal but also asking the bigger, more esoteric questions that have followed Johns since his youth, Anamnesisisn’t like most folk rock records. But then again, most folk rock records aren’t informed by an obscure text from 1616 about spiritual transformation. Ethan Johns’ first album since 2015’s Silver Liner, the musical polymath’s latest release is a whirlwind of a thing, a magical coming together of people and of ideas. Anamnesis then, is where classic British folk meets the sound of wandering American troubadours with a healthy dose of inspiration from the unknown.
