The Blog is back! And is kicking off 2012 with a brief selection of artists that might just find a little traction on the slippery slopes of the music industry in 2012.
The Ironbath was introduced to The Staves – Jessica, Camilla & Emily Staveley-Taylor – at the end of last year and was mightily impressed by their close harmony. They are currently on tour with The Civil Wars which will surely create a wave of interest across the States. They have released an EP ‘Mexico’ and are in the process of preparing an album with legendary producer, Ethan Johns who is known for his work with Ryan Adams & Laura Marling amongst a great many others.
In December they played a short session on the Dermot O’Leary Saturday Sessions. They talked about their background and played their single, ‘Mexico’ and a cover of The Kings Of Leon song ‘The Bucket’.
You can listen to the whole session here.
The Staves were named as one of 6 new artists to watch in 2012 by the Guardian newspaper. There is a short video interview on their website. A little googling threw up a track that Jessica published on an old MySpace page, and also revealed that she had been a cast member of the iconic British children’s TV show, Grange Hill, some 10 years previously.
