In the last of our Cornbury interviews, we bring you our chat with Eddy Smith and the 507, who are not, despite their name, made up of 508 members, but one of them is actually named Eddy. Now based in London, they come from as far as Kent, the US, Ireland, and Surrey (or is it Sussex?). Lisa sat down and had a chat with the band.
The multi-platinum rock group FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has teamed up with the legendary BRIAN MAY of QUEEN and two of the biggest names in country and blues rock, BRANTLEY GILBERT and KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD to record a special version of the song ‘Blue On Black’ mixed by Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain, Disturbed). Titans in each of their respective genres, the artists came together to merge country and mainstream rock to re-create the classic song originally recorded and co-written by Shepherd. Taking Country Rock to the next level, ‘Blue On Black’ is out now worldwide via Prospect Park (North America) and Eleven Seven Music (ex. North America). The song is available HERE and the artists also premiered an official music video for ‘Blue On Black’ showing the creation of the song.
Earthquake Lights, from New York City, put a different spin on modern rock, with their love of both heavy guitars and softer tones, and inspirations including the likes of Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Beck, and The Who. Their debut album, ‘Distress Signals’, is out early next year and was recorded first at Douglass Recording, Brooklyn, and then Abbey Road Studios, London.
