Silence and Company
'A Companion for the Quiet Part Two'
Silence And Company are an East Anglian based Blues/Rock band that formed in late 2018.
With a passion for the magic of guitar centric music, a knowledge of the blues that belies his age and years of experience fine tuning his sound as a guitar technician Jake has brought together a group of musicians who share a vision of creating a unique sound that combines old school ideas with a modern sound and a colourful live performance.
Their influences range from Eric Clapton, George Benson and John Mayer to Guns n Roses, Chris Stapleton and many more that have helped shaped songs on their first EP ‘A Companion for the Quiet’, which was released March 2019.
This latest release out September 12th is a great companion for part one and the two songs really show the diverse musicality of the band Silence and Company.
If you haven't already checked these guys out then I would recommend it, definitely worth your time, and the music is a very interesting mix of styles, that all seem to work together to create some wonderful tunes.
'A Companion for the Quiet' is a three part ep with each release having two songs. Part one has tracks 'This Ain't A Blues Song' and 'Fall', with part two offering 'Hit Back' and 'Pint Of That', and part three is in the pipeline for a March 2020 release.
'Hit Back' has a very modern and interesting mix of sounds with some wonderful vocals from Millie Wisbeach and a real eclectic mix of musical styles that create a really good tune.
The next track on part two is called 'Pint Of That' and has a slower more mellow, almost a Beautiful South vibe going on. The vocals are shared between Jake and Millie, and they complement each other very well indeed.
TFM gives 'A Companion for the Quiet' a 4/5, definitely worth a listen, and a band to watch out for in the future.
Silence and Company are Jake Wix (vocals/guitar), Millie Wisbeach (vocals), Sean Clayton (drums), and Lewis Young (bass).
EP release party will be held at The Portland Arms in Cambridge on September 12th and you can follow the band at https://www.facebook.com/silenceandco/
