Ian Roland & Simon Yapp

On Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show next Sunday (March 5th) we'll be featuring a few a few Americana styled tracks so it was very timeous when Day Became You, the new EP from Ian Roland & Simon Yapp was dropped off via the good offices of the postal service.

Produced by Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore, The Waterboys, Joan Baez, Martha Wainwright, Fairport Convention et al), the EP is the new release by Folk, Americana duo Ian Roland & Simon Yapp.

Released January 2017 it includes new songs, Day Became You and Gravity Inside, as well as a new recording of the excellent Shooting Star



Ranging from the reflective and infectious title track Day Became You, through the delightfully melodious love song Shooting Star that follows and into the bouncy foot-stomper that is Gravity Inside, Ian Roland & Simon Yapp have given us a multi-faceted Americana gem from which we'll be featuring a track on the Radio KC Indie Show on March 5th.

Recorded at Airtight Productions Recording Studios, Manchester, UK, with Séadna McPhail engineering and Alan Lowles mastering the final release, the EP has Nigel Stonier also providing multi-instrumental parts, as well as Séadna adding percussion and Richard Young on drums.
