True Gents EP
The True Gents were formed in the woods of Invermay, Perthshire around 2 years ago by Toby Jeffrey and Euan Nicol, who would regularily meet up armed with acoustic guitars and spend the day writing songs reflecting on love, life and friendship. Before long, they had a shedload of songs written, and met up with local producer Robin Wynn Evans (the view, manic street preachers, dodgy) to record them. The resulting CD was handed out to friends and family, and gradually the True Gents grew from a duo into a fully fledged musical collective. The following year was spent arranging the songs for the new 9-piece lineup and writing lots of new songs with influences drawn from Scottish traditional music, songs of the sea and contemporary folk, with Toby and Euan winning the Songwriting competition at Dougie Maclean's Perthshire Amber festival along the way. The True Gents EP was partly home-recorded by David Macfarlane and partly recorded at T-Pot studios, Dunning, Perthshire by Robin Wynn Evans. The tracks were then mixed by Jamie Maclean at Butterstone Studios.
