TALES - THE LIVE EP.
Tales is the brand new live EP project from Demi Marriner.
The EP was recorded and filmed live in different locations across the country with just one microphone and one camera. Demi was eager to work on a project that captured the element of live performance and the rawness of something that was self mixed and not over produced.
"For me, I write the majority of my songs alone with my guitar. It is always a very real and very organic moment and I wanted to maintain that when producing and recording it with a band. I like the idea of it being a one take kind of thing. I perform at my best when I am performing live and living the song in that very moment. I like the unexpected thing that happen in that, including sometimes the imperfections that come with it. I was keen to share that through this EP."
The EP videos were released on the first of every month on Demi's YouTube Channel, which are all available now!
You can purchase physical hand-made copies of the EP at all of Demi's shows, including limited edition collectable copies with individually drawn front covers and polaroids of the recording process.
You can also purchase the EP at Demi's online store from this website.
