David J Roch – video and EP stream

Here is the 2nd in a series of stripped back performances from the wonderful David J Roch:
The Lost Child –
His soon to be released debut album was produced by Jim Sclavunos (The Bad Seeds/Grinderman) and is a collection of compositions of epic sweep. Whether set against a backdrop of lush orchestration, stark electronic ambience or thrumming crescendos, Roch’s voice compels and mesmerizes as it leaps from sonorous baritione to soaring falsetto.
He has supported bands such as British Sea Power, I Am Arrows and The Smoke Fairies, both on his own and with his full band and has made a lasting impression on each audience. In the lead up to the release of the album, David J Roch has made an EP of tracks taken from his debut masterpiece – only he has stripped them back, raw and acoustic, much like his current live set. He has also made a series of videos to accompany the release of the EP. The tracks he’s chosen to perform are all live favourites.
The Acoustic EP – This is For You, Whether I’ve Met You or Not released on the 30th May
Skin & Bones – the debut album by David J Roch is to be released later on in the year. Both are on Dram Records.
