Fossil Collective + Sam Eden
Sun 10th June @ The Yardbird Jazz Club



Fossil Collective, a two-piece from Leeds, consists of multi instrumentalists David Fendick and Jonny Hooker. Their first recordings saw them taking inspiration from classic albums by Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac and Simon and Garfunkel and suggested comparisons with more contemporary artists such as Fleet Foxes, Midlake and Bon Iver. But in truth their exquisitely structured songs and glorious, rich harmonies owe as much, if not more, to a solid English song tradition, and their material holds that distinct English quality that many North American artists hanker after.

“These guys are up-and-coming talents that are going to be up there among the indie-folk elite.” – Obscure Sound



Sam Eden combines powerful vocals and engaging lyrics, with intricate piano melodies and delicate guitar styles. Often compared to Damien Rice, David Gray and Ed Sheeran, Sam has gigged his way across the Midlands and Wales including performances this year at The Big Chill Festival, Birmingham Arts Fest and Worcester Huntingdon Hall where he supported Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash. This year also saw the release of Sam’s debut album ‘Kill The Lights’ which has received rave reviews and some decent air time on BBC Introducing, BRFM and Radio Port Douglas.
