Joe Egan comes from Ireland and moved to Göteborg a couple of years ago where he started Madderfield in the beginning of last year. At the start of this summer he released the debut EP, 5 songs that first of all are based around Joe’s sensitive, expressive voice and his acoustic guitar. It varies in the vibe from english folk pop to a touch of country, with some hint of Nick Drake, but still with his very personal style.
The immediate pearl among the songs is “What Happened to the Boy”, which you can listen to and download here below. Listen to the entire EP on Madderfield’s site and on Spotify. Follow him on Facebook.
