Album Notes
“As soon as the album’s title track opens proceedings the scope of musicianship within the band becomes evident. The beautifully atmospheric ‘Balloon’ sets the tone for songs that deserve to be heard, rather than trigger happy musicians demanding to be acknowledged. The music is delivered confidently while the vocals purr along in approval.”
Music Review Unsigned November 2012

“I would compare the composition and production of each song on the album to looking at a chest of treasure, every piece is a unique and well crafted gem. The rich multitude of well placed instrumentation and subtly delightful sound-scapes, combined with Josh’s beautifully understated voice and at times, laid back delivery makes for a very inspiring and uplifting listen indeed.”
Samantha Jean Scuffham (The Secret Showcase Presents review December 2012)

Fronted by the strikingly distinctive voice of Josh Mills and supported by a band of instinctive, sympathetic musicians, Soapy Jefferson have created a unique sound that is familiar but difficult to define.
Originally formed as an acoustic trio in late 2009, the band soon developed a darker, heavier, more atmospheric sound that evolved from many hours spent playing music together. They spent early 2010 gigging mainly in their native South London, crafting songs that would eventually be featured on their debut EP ‘Carnival’.

2011 was spent writing, gigging and fine-tuning the songs that would eventually become their debut full-length album ‘Balloon’. Most of the recording took place in a mansion in South London where the band lived for 2 weeks, a setting which contributed to a distinctive atmosphere and sound that can be heard throughout the album. Produced by Shelley Uprichard and Jim Hewins, and featuring a multitude of instruments including guitars, harmonium, double bass, a cement mixer, grand piano and a brass band, ‘Balloon’ is sure to launch this unique band to another level in 2013.
