Folk-rock trio The Staves' debut album Dead & Born & Grown is celebrating its 10th Anniversary on the 12th November 2022. To celebrate this we will be re-issuing the album on recycled colour vinyl.
Emily (vocals, synths), Jessica (vocals, guitar, keyboards), and Camilla (vocals, guitar, ukulele) Staveley-Taylor have been making music together since they were children, growing up in Watford, England. Brought up in a house that echoed to the sounds of Simon & Garfunkel; Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Beatles, singing in perfect 3-part harmony came naturally to these three sisters. Having started gigging in local pubs and cafes, The Staves are now captivating audiences on much bigger stages. The Staves released their first full-length album Dead & Born & Grown, produced by Glyn and Ethan Johns, in 2012. The band spent much of the next three years touring the world, including opening spots with Florence + The Machine, The Civil Wars, Ben Howard and Bon Iver. During the Bon Iver run, the sisters formed a bond with Justin Vernon, who invited them to visit his April Base studio, where he ultimately produced their critically acclaimed second album, 2015's If I Was.
The Staves are official 2022 National Album Day Ambassadors, as part of National Album Day 2022 the band will be repressing their debut album on recycled colour vinyl. Having just completed tour dates in the UK and Ireland the band will also be performing two sold out anniversary shows at The Barbican in London on the 22nd November and 3rd December 2022.
