Out today, you can her Gawn’s Thee Essence Ov Everything with us first.
Zach Koenig started arranging songs with Johns Swanson and James Francis around November 2018. Meeting up at a tiny rehearsal space in Brooklyn, NY every day after work and filling it up with every piece of gear they had. Writing, recording and having a roster of different musicians sitting in for gigs and recording sessions.
A few of them who stuck around are EP McRae (Drums), Kyu Lee (guitar), Anders Nils (bass), and Duke Taylor (guitar). After recording a bunch of material, Koenig decided to put a name on the project. After dealing with players who couldn’t play shows on a regular basis, the band started switching it up every show.
It kept it fun and a mystery to what the sets would be. After a year of playing the NYC and East Coast circuit, Gawn will release a nine-song LP in August called Thee Essence Ov Everything and plan on touring the U.S. in September.
