Joe Slater Swoons on an Emotive New Acoustic Cut
Liverpool needs no introduction when it comes to producing songwriters and Joe Slater is no different. His new single encapsulates all that’s great about the musically talented city.
Inspired by a TV interview with Elvis Presley, ‘Rainbow’ commences with Joe’s sincere vocals at the forefront, before slowly building into a glorious rendition, complete with blues-inspired keys and contemplative echoes from the interview; “You can’t make a Rainbow without a little rain”, all whilst pulling focus to the innovative and stellar songwriting.
It’s the first track from a stellar project, due to launch later this year. The EP – recorded at London’s State of the Ark studios – was produced by Kipper Eldridge (Sting), mixed by Cameron Craig (Adele), and Mastered at Abbey Road. Musicians featured include Robbie McIntosh (Paul McCartney / John Mayer) on guitar; Mat Hector (Iggy Pop / Grace Jones) on drums; Mark Neary (Noel Gallagher / U2) on bass; and jazz maestro Ross Stanley on keys.
