Songwriter heads in new direction on second EP 

LOCALsongwriter Jeremy Tuplin released his second EP ‘Open Letters’   last month on the Resonating Wood label.

Jeremy, from Wanstrow, has been playing across London in recent years and is preparing to record his debut album. ‘Open Letters’ is his second release following the issue of his critically acclaimed ‘Carry The Fire’ in late 2014. This new collection of songs represents a climax of Tuplin’s songwriting which began  in his late teens. Surrounded by music from an early age – his father founded the Dorchester folk club in the sixties – and having migrated to the West Country in his early years, Tuplin cut his musical teeth in intimate venues and folk clubs around Somerset.

On his new EP Jeremy said, “I wanted to try and create something that’s not really specific to any genre. I’ve got loads of different influences – from Cass McCombs to Willy Mason, from Leonard Cohen to Bill Callahan, but also acts from the London circuit who are barely known but incredible.

“There’s that underlying ‘folk’ element, but I’m hoping this EP moves away from that to something more contemporary.”

The new EP is co-produced and recorded with Mark Estall, who also contributes percussion, bass guitar and keys. Other contributors include Oscar Lyons on violin, Grace Banks on backing vocals, Ely Fair (Months Of Indecision) on cello, Jon Hess on e-Bow, and David Nave on trumpet.
