About the ‘Five Past Lives’ EP:

Five Past Lives is a collection of letters to 5 significant male figures in the history of Johnny Powell, all of which have caused an important spiritual shift and re-direction of mental focus. ‘Five Past Lives’ explores the themes of co-incidence, synchronicity, beauty in death, the origin of suffering, the nature of mind itself, and the importance of extracting meaning from destructive incidents, or relationships.

Five Past Lives is a DIY release, recorded in isolation in a semi-derelict mill (a.k.a. the ‘Mitchell Brothers’ Studio) high on the Old Town moorland above Hebden Bridge. The found sounds and instrumentation all intertwine in a deliberate and focussed manner to conjur the atmosphere of each of the 5 letters.

Reviews from the last release:

Piccadilly Records: 'Johnny Powell, is still teetering on the edge of troubled genius with this new clutch of soul-scraping, larynx-wobbling freak-folk vignettes'
Leeds Music Scene: 4.5/5 'you'll surely shiver when listening to this low-fi, eerie yet brilliantly brash collection of songs. Fans of artists in the vein of Smog, Neutral Milk Hotel & Bon Iver will no doubt receive it well'
BB6 Radio 6 Music 'It’s just got us all chilled out and lovely!'
BBC Introducing 'Exciting times lie ahead for Johnny Powell and co.'
24/7 Magazine: 4.5/5 'Johnny Powell’s new solo venture is a harrowing, ethereal creature that swims in delicate voices and folky reflection - like an even lonelier Devendra Banhart. Interesting and affecting'
