If you have been following CTD for a bit, you will know by now that we are huge fans of experimental guitar virtuoso and singer-songwriter Eric Chenaux. So we’re thrilled to know he’s following his divine Skullsplitter, which was one of our Album Picks of 2015, with a new record called Slowly Paradise. Set for release on March 9th through Constellation, the album is described as “a lovely collection of songs guided by soothing, buttery singing and bent, fried fretwork”.
The album’s closing track ‘Wild Moon’ is the first enveloping and spellbinding single to emerge and it comes with a video directed by Eric Cazdyn. Wrap your ears around it.
To celebrate the album’s release, Eric Chenaux has announced several UK/European live dates in March and April, including a show at the Lexington in London on April 9th. Take a look at all his stops below and go experience his gorgeous and magical songcraft live.
