Product Description

Product Description

Following the release of their 2009 CD a.h.a.b., London based duo Callum Adamson and Dave Burn were invited to play a residency at the famous 'Tootsies Orchid Lounge' during Nashville's Country Music Awards week festival in Nashville, Tennessee. Recruiting Seebs Llewellyn and Luke Price into their fledgling expanded line-up, they subsequently spent a week playing twice a day to packed houses and were even given an invite to record at Warner Studios in Nashville. ahab returned to the UK and decided to make the new line-up permanent. They spent two months busking in east London, which is where their unique sound took shape - four part harmonies complementing extremely accomplished songwriting. While busking, the band created such a stir that they were warned by the police not to busk at markets anymore as the crowds that gathered were blocking the streets. It was time to look further afield. In August 2010 ahab were invited to play Fairport Convention's Cropredy Festival on the strength of a YouTube video of them busking. BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris watched them wow the 15,000 strong crowd from the side of the stage and invited them there and then to record a session for his Saturday night programme. At this point the band did not have a release available for their rapidly growing fan base to take home, so in October 2010 they went into London's Snap Studios to record a 5 track CD of self-penned songs. Impressed by the results, Bob Harris offered to host a CD launch party at the BBC Club. Then the word got out. Legendary producer John Leckie attended one of their early shows and offered to return to Snap Studios to record 'Lucy', a download single. In February 2011, to promote 'Lucy', they played their first full national tour comprising of more than 20 shows with most of the dates selling out in advance. In April 2011 ahab recorded another 5 songs at Real World Studios, once again with John Leckie at the helm. Collectively entitled 'kmvt', these will be released by Navigator Records in September 2011. Prior to release, ahab will be busy performing at more than 30 festivals in the UK and Europe as well as playing several of their own shows.

"I loved ahab's terrific performance at Cropredy festival. They are blistering live - alt-country edge and sheer class." Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

At last!! A band that sounds as good on CD as they do live. It doesn't happen very often but ahab sound as comfortable in the studio as anyone who has seen them will tell you they are live. And they've picked 5 of the best live tracks for this EP. They are already attracting a ton of attention so buy now and go and see them. And what the hell does kmvt stand for? They won't tell us.

I too discovered Ahab while they were supporting the fantastic Bellowhead. Their harmonies are amazing and their music really classy - you want to hear more! I immediately brought everything they've done so far and love every track. I'm sure they will be huge in the future. Would thoroughly recommend this!

Saw 'ahab' live last night supporting 'Bellowhead' on their tour. They could have held the stage all night and kept the audience entertained. They're far more than a support act. Amazingly talented guys - great playing and fantastic harmonies. I don't often do it, but I bought their CD's after the show - well worth it. Watch out for this band and see them if you can. You won't be disappointed.

We saw Ahab as an accompanying band on a tour locally. They were so energetic and engaging, we had to get an album.
This is pretty good, but not quite right yet. They have the sound and the energy. But the tracks are of mixed quality.

Was privileged to be at their very first live show on 7th Feb 2012. It was great to hear them saying that, after so much time as street entertainers, they were no used to having an audience that stayed where it was!!!
Great album and a group destined for stardom - I,m doing my bit!
