Greg Laswell Returns with Covers EP
Greg Laswell displays his knack for lush orchestral arrangements and captivating vocals on his new Covers EP which will be released October 6 on Vanguard Records.
The five-song album features covers of Echo & The Bunnymen, Morphine, Mazzy Star, Kate Bush and Kristin Hersh's "Your Ghost" which was recently featured on KCRW's "Today's Top Tune."
In addition to playing most of the instruments on the album, Laswell produced the record himself in a cabin in Mountainaire, Arizona. After several emotionally driven full-length original albums, he is able to seamlessly portray the intended sorrowful images through his thoughtful interpretations. "This EP let me stop singing about my own loss and heartache. I got to channel some other emotions and was able to be objective about the material," Laswell explains.
