Soulful Georgian R&B rocker Eddie 9V to tour the UK

Hot from Atlanta, Georgia, Eddie 9V has made a name for himself in the blues scene in the US and is set to bring his retro-soul to the UK this spring.

Hailed as one of the most dynamic and highly entertaining guitarists and singer songwriters on the circuit today, Beg, Borrow And Steal is the opening track from his new album, Capricorn. Watch below:

As far back as he can remember, Capricorn Studios was calling Eddie 9V. As a kid scanning the sleeves of his favourite vinyl records, this fabled facility in Macon, Georgia, was always the secret ingredient, adding a little grit and honey to every song born on its floor.

Following acclaimed early albums, Left My Soul in Memphis (2019) and Little Black Flies (2021), Eddie and an 11-strong group hit Capricorn to record his third album. “There was overwhelming excitement at being in such a legendary studio,” he says. “But we hugged and got right to work. Everyone was joyous, loving, and flat-out playing their asses off.”

“In a world where everyone is trying to sound the best, I’m trying to sound like me,” he continued. “I always want the listener to feel like they’re in the room with us. So I’d leave it in if a drum pedal squeaked or someone laughed during a take on the Capricorn album. It’s our way of putting a stamp on the song.

“We made this record the way they would have done in 1969…”

Capricorn is an album of thrilling musical contrasts bursting with ballsy soul and rockin’ R&B. Buy it here
