The In The Garden EP will be the sixth Scott Lloyd release to date and covers insightful themes such as getting older, childhood, mental health and loss. Normally a solo performer, Scott has used a full band to back him on the EP, which is a step away from his previous acoustic sound. The EP was recorded at Limefield Studios, Manchester in July 2016 and will be released independently by Scott.
Scott Lloyd was born in Middlesbrough and moved to Manchester after university. His sound has been likened to folk artists such as Neil Young and Bob Dylan, with a nod to more contemporary British acts like The Coral and Jake Bugg. Stylistically the EP would be placed in the Folk/Rock genre.
In the past, Scott Lloyd has achieved success through radio play such as a live radio session with BBC Introducing Tees back in 2015, as well as having his song Lock The Door featured as ’Single of The Week’ on Salford City Radio.
As a taster for the EP the single In The Garden shows how much Scott has matured both as a songwriter and as a musician, intelligently using the backing of the band to bring a fuller more compelling feel to his musical practice.
