Last year was a busy year for Eb & Sparrow. We opened for Rodriguez, the Sugarman himself, at the TSB Arena - Wellington followed by an opening slot for Anika Moa in Carterton. We recorded our debut album at The Sitting Room in Lyttelton and played to a full house at the Wunderbar. We then opened for Beth Orton, known for her folktronica sound, on her New Zealand Tour.
Thanks to everyone for their support, we so appreciate it!

Here's a great write up from the Wairarapa Times Age.
"Eb & Sparrow are one of the more impressive acts I have seen at the WBS for quite some time. The group were entirely un-amplified, using the full acoustics of the venue to its true potential. Adding to this were the very tasteful, respectful and solid rhythm section - Eb & Sparrow rocked… It would be fitting for Eb & Sparrow to feature at one of NZ's major Folk Festivals.” Andrew Bicknell - President, Wellington Bluegrass Society.
“Another impressive act new to me was Miss Ebony Lamb from Wellington who opened for Delaney (Davidson)and Marlon (Williams) at Aratoi. A singer-songwriter in the Gillian Welch mould, she presented an impressive original set.” Karl du Fresne - Freelance Journalist, Thursday 30th August 2012.
