"hits the shuffling melody sweet spot [ . . . ] poignant well-crafted " - The Daily Country
"somewhere between Dylan and the Replacements or The Trouble with Sweeney and Uncle Tupelo. His latest is rollicking and ready for a bar near you." - Twangville
"The obvious touchstone here is Springsteen, who built his legacy crafting indelible blue-collar screeds, but the stormy energy is equally suggestive of the scruffy anti-pop of the Replacements. In any case, it’s brash, smart songwriting, the kind that ably offers what most good music does: a promise of escape." - Immersive Atlanta
Ethan Fogus will release a new record on October 14th 2016. The follow-up to 2013's A Door Swings Back will be a change of pace for the songwriter. Gone are the whimsical instrumentation and abstract lyrics from his previous records. “I wanted to make a record that you could listen to at a party—like something you could put on around your friends and it wouldn’t bum everyone out.”
Southbound, sounds like the E Street Band fronted by Conor Oberst. Recorded live by Damon Moon (Ben Trickey, Small Houses, Sydney Eloise and The Palms) at The Cottage in East Atlanta during whirlwind sessions that Moon said were "so good that they gave me chills." With the help of seasoned players—Brandon Belcher (Dojo Collective) Matthew Pendrick (Cicada Rhythm, Slow Parade), Paul Stevens (Grand Vapids), and Ben Davidow, (Buzzards of Fuzz, Gas Hound). "Without the help of my friends, this would be a completely different record."
“Southbound is really different from my past records. Before it was me in a room for hours perfecting each note. Southbound, though, was recorded live and there’s less emphasis on perfectionism, and more dancing between sleek polish and ragged anthems. These songs have some of my best songwriting ever.”
Look for Southbound on October 14th available on iTunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp.
