The London Ear 308 // Interview with One Morning in August

Hello! We’re into September and now’s a great opportunity to chat to John Phelan from One Morning in August. The band cleverly released their self titled album on the last Friday of August.

I really enjoyed the chat with John and as I said during our chat, one of the things that I enjoyed about lockdown was the opportunity to get to know some of the musicians I’ve been playing on the radio. Besides having the opportunity of playing great music, it’s great to be able to get to know the people behind the tunes also.

The record, One Morning in August, was completed during lockdown and the pair of musicians are pretty much like the rest of us, not physically seeing each other since February. Technology is brilliant!

If you get the opportunity, I would encourage you to check out the new One Morning in August record. There’s an honesty and purity to this record, it’s not pretending to be anything it’s not and I genuinely love the production, the guitars sound amazing!

Check out One Morning in August on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and right now, the album is available exclusively on Bandcamp.

This week’s #FromTheVault track is 1987’s Gone Forever by Cry Before Dawn taken from their critically acclaimed album ‘Crimes of Conscience’.
