Featuring support from Claire Terry and Steven Toussaint.
When The Good Words were beginning to find their feet, vocalist Nik Jarvie found hers standing on the same stage as two of her musical idols: Warren Maxwell and Lisa Tomlins. After an invitation from Maxwell to record at his studio The Good Words now have their debut EP – Shadow Play.
For one night only at BATS, the band will showcase its playful style, drawing you into the sorcery of their songwriting. Known for taking listeners on a journey, The Good Words created Shadow Play with magic in mind. Weaving through love letters, burning with curiosity, sharpening for revenge, daring to touch on the truth – these songs are stirring and satisfying at once.
The sound of The Good Words is expansive. They have taken the grit from funk, the shimmer of soul-jazz, the hooks of pop, and the energy of a rock band to create 21st Century Diva-Blues. With these ingredients The Good Words have stumbled on a sound that is all their own.
They look forward to sharing their debut studio recording with you.
Available on CD and through the world wide web.
