Pleased to announce to you the release of Noel Cowley’s second EP ‘Home Is Everywhere’.
Noel Corley is a singer/songwriter, born in South-East London, who started making his own music in 2006 after The Bexleys, the band he formed with his brother, split up. Noel is now carving a name for himself on the UK acoustic music scene. His music is set deep in the themes of love, loss and hope.
After releasing his debut EP, ‘Hazy Summer Morning’ in November 2012, his music was subsequently featured on BBC Introducing In Essex early 2013. Noel put out his first single ‘Emily’ in October 2013 and is now self-releasing his new EP, which will be available digitally as well as physically, with a limited amount of CDs, from January 14th 2014.
The second EP, ‘Home Is Everywhere’ is inspired by the people closest to him. It delves into childhood memories of growing up in Derry, Dublin and London and focuses on his relationships with loved ones past and present. The songs reflect on what it is to feel at home no matter where you might be. They suggest a fascination with his family’s Irish, English and Scottish backgrounds and are a celebration of these widespread roots.
The lead track, ‘If Nobody Told You’, deals with how, as individuals and as a society, we put barriers in the way of our emotional freedom. It also asks how we might become more able to feel at home in our own skins.
This second EP was recorded in Manchester in November 2013. It was produced by Nigel Stonier, who produced the latest Fran Smith EP as well as the Thea Gilmore albums. It features Dublin based multi-instrumentalist (and brother) Ewan Cowley on piano and guitar, 10CC’s Paul Burgess on drums and backing vocals from esteemed singer-songwriter Tracey Browne.
The EP will be available from Tuesday 14th of January 2014 via Bandcamp and will also be available as hard copies.
