Hard Work, a 4 track EP by New Zealand singer, songwriter, Davey Beige mixes traditional blues with a slice of Americana, a new direction from his previous folk influenced album, Fold in Two.
While the driving medium for this release was digital, Davey wanted a traditional, physical album to offer collectors or fans at shows. These limited edition EPs feature individually screen printed discs—a process that ensured each disc was completely unique.
With all tracks having a 'road' theme, Davey had a good idea of the direction he wanted for the album artwork. Ultimately it was decided that it was important to showcase the artist on the cover.
Available to stream or purchase from Bandcamp, each track is supported with an individual, downloadable lyric card. With dimensions slightly smaller than the cover, these cards can be printed and inserted into, and amalgamated with, the physical album.
In addition to Bandcamp, Hard Work is available in the iTunes Store.
