DOUBLE EWES - DOUBLE EWES
Double Ewes is an electronic indie folk band founded in 2010 by singer-songwriter Whilden Hughes VI in Janesville, Wisconsin. The band includes myself and Max Jewer as members. Hughes started recording ideas on cassettes while living in a house near to his family farm on the outskirts of Janesville. With the addition of myself and Jewer we were able to use pieces of the early tape recordings to compose songs for the debut self-titled release Double Ewes (2014). The songs are backed by an electronic drum kit and sampling machine which when combined with other instruments create a dense texture comprised of many layers.
A close friend Mike Williams created the cover artwork and logo for this release. We relied heavily on promotion via press and social media to insure the self-release of our album was successful.
Images & videos were used to advance the album release through social media.
Each album sleeve was screen printed with gold metallic ink on matte black card stock and individually hand numbered. Booklet and compact disc were included with purchase. The pressing was limited to 150 copies.
