Smith & Brewer announce their first studio album

Smith & Brewer

Smith & Brewer release their debut studio album on November 1st.

Recorded over the course of a week in early 2018, using a makeshift studio we put together in our friends’ barn, this album is the culmination of the last few years writing and playing together. We wanted to record our best songs, in the way we felt would suit them best – with great musicians playing together in a great sounding room.

Another Shade Of Smith & Brewer ranges from the acoustic duo sound that we’re best known for, through to a full acoustic and electric band. We recruited our old friends Eric Lavansch on drums and Tom Sinnett on bass for our rhythm section, and we all had a lot of fun. Every morning after breakfast we’d make coffee, walk in to the barn, light the fire, and play music together.

It was a wonderful way to record, and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed playing and producing it.

We are currently looking for bookings for 2020, and in addition to playing our own shows to promote the album, we will be touring in early 2020 supporting Fairport Convention on their winter U.K. tour.
