Record producer, engineer, mixer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ethan Johns will play The Lemon Tree on Monday, October 15, having recently released his latest folk rock album, Anamnesis.
Ethan originally made his name as a producer/musician on iconic albums from musicians such as Crowded House, Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, The Kaiser Chiefs, Kings of Leon, Crosby, Stills and Nash and many more.
He is the son of the notable record producer and engineer, Glyn Johns, who is known for working with artists such as The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin and The Who. In 2012, he won the Brit award for Best British Producer.
Anamnesis is Ethan’s first album since 2015’s Silver Liner. The album begins, like many things do, with The Invitation, a swirling Hawkwind-esque instrumental and ends with The Wedding, skipping through a world of magic and mystery in-between. Recorded in the barn at the bottom of his garden over two weeks in the depths of last winter, Johns fourth LP sees him reunited with his long-standing band, who came together for what he calls “legitimately one of the best times I’ve ever had making a record.” Though he might be an acclaimed, Brit Award winning producer, he handed over the reigns to the collective when it came to fine turning the album in the studio. “Everybody had a vital part to play,” he explains. “I was blown away by the sense of community.” Even his wife, who is lovingly credited as ‘den mother’ on the album sleeve, stepped in to lend a hand.
Tickets for Ethan Johns at The Lemon Tree are available from www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, in person at the box office or phone 01224 641122.
