Sheldonian / Live / EP
The new live EP that was recorded in 2019 at Oxford's Sheldonian from the Kingston visitor and Supergrass man Gaz Coombes.
The EP comes following his charity concert at the Sheldonian Theatre to mark the 350th anniversary of Christopher Wren’s iconic building. Gaz performed a bespoke set with an orchestral arrangement with Luke Lewis conducting. All proceeds from the concert were donated to two local charities, Yellow Submarine of which supports people with learning difficulties, and the Young Women’s Music Project (YWMP) with Suzy Bowtell of the charity opening the show. Previously, Gaz released his album ‘World’s Strongest Man’ back in 2018 which was the follow up to 2015’s ‘Matador’ – a record conceived, recorded and mixed in the studio equivalent of solitary confinement. It transported Gaz from ‘former Supergrass frontman’ to hugely respected Mercury and Ivor Novello nominated solo artist in the space of ten months. After this came ‘Salamander’, the first release after the highly acclaimed album. The track was written and recorded by Gaz at his Oxford studio, co-produced alongside long-time collaborator Ian Davenport, and featured guest performances from members of his incredible touring band.
