Acclaimed record producer and musician Ethan Johns has announced his first Irish show at the Sugar Club Friday 22nd February 2013 in support of his Debut album “If Not Now Then When?”
The Brit award winning producer, whose vast production credits include The Vaccines, Kings of Leon, Ray Lamontagne, Laura Marling, and Ryan Adams to name but a few, has decided branched out into solo material with the release of his debut album due in February 2013. It is now Johns' moment on lead vox, his own reel of tunes in tow, for a full-length set brought to fruition with the help of talented friends.
The result is 10 tracks that both thrive on the room's raw energy and reveal the voice of a pensive songwriter ruminating on broader topics behind the scenes. From its intimate opening, "Hello Sunshine," in which the lyrics bid a "cruel world" adieu, to pondering the human condition in "Eden," ‘If Not Now Then When?’ broaches a range of daunting questions from a wise, hard-won perspective. Meanwhile, full-band cuts like the fiddle-laced "Rally" and assertive strut of "Don't Reach Too Far" draw on a long tradition of blues, rock and folk influences to rousing effect.
