Earlier this year our Violin player Lizz made a decision to leave the Beholden and, rather than look for a replacement, we decided to call time on our 'Glyn Bailey & the Beholden' project and move on...
As a farewell, and a 'Thank You' for your support, we've decided to release an E.P. featuring studio recordings of 4 cover versions, which were a mainstay of our live set from the final 3-piece incarnation of the band. This will be a 'Download Only' release offered 'free of charge' to friends on our mailing list, so get your copy here: LINK
The track listing is Kraftwerk's The Model, Marc Bolan's Life's a Gas, The Beatles' In My Life, and The Buzzcocks' Ever Fallen in Love. They're all performed in our 3-piece 'chamber pop' format, which featured yours truly on Guitar/Vocals/Harmonica, Phil Senior on Bass/Backing Vocal, and of course, Lizz Beahan on Violin/Vocal.
Mixing and mastering were all beautifully handled by Dave Archer of Last Riff Studios, Cincinatti, U.S.of A.

With thanks to Howard Male for allowing use of the title of his first novel, 'Etc Etc Amen' (Which Phil describes as "A spiffing read!") - LINK
I shall continue to perform occasional local gigs and focus on completing my 'solo' album, with help from Phil, and various other musicians ... more news on that as it progresses.
