about

In September 2014, three songwriters met for the first time in a cafe in East Nashville. By the next morning they had put the finishing touches to their first song, 'Applewood Road', which they recorded live to tape at Nashville's all analogue studio, Welcome to 1979.

The song's nostalgic air, along with the clear, sparse arrangement of three vocals accompanied by double bass, drew immediate positive response, and they decided to expand the idea into a full album.

Six months later, they reconvened to write, rehearse and record songs for the self-titled album Applewood Road. The songs were again performed live around a single microphone at Welcome to 1979 and recorded to two-track tape with minimal accompaniment from some of Nashville’s finest session players, including Aaron Lee Tasjan, Josh Day, Fats Kaplin, Jabe Beyer, and Telisha Williams.

The tapes were assembled at London’s most exclusive high-end mastering suite, Gearbox Records, mastered through their vintage analogue outboard, and lacquers cut in-house on their own Heaco lathe.

Applewood Road is Emily Barker, Amber Rubarth and Amy Speace.

lyrics

Purple leaves all around
Silver stars are falling down
I’m saving all these words I know
And kicking up dust down Applewood Road

Leaving my pennies on the track
Can’t say if I’m coming back
Just flying through these fields so slow
And taking my heart down Applewood Road

Tin roof, rattling rain
Watch the moon taking the stage
Spotlight for the night time show
Making its way down Applewood Road
Making our way down Applewood Road
Making our way down Applewood Road
