Seasons Greetings!

As I’m sure, this is a good time in general, for everyone to retrospect the past year and thats certainly no different for us here at Eden Shadow!

It has certainly been a busy, enjoyable and inspiring year for us. To reflect, we released our debut EP “Hail”, had a lot of fun putting it together and sharing it with you all. We rehearsed prolifically throughout the year and are continuing the work in progress that is our live performance, which we promise will be happening much more in the not too distant future! And speaking of future, we have spent the latter half of this year developing our debut album ‘Phases’. We seriously believe that we have learned so much with our debut album, we have come more together as trio and we look forward to sharing the news…keep an eye out in January!

Considering how newly established we are, we honestly cannot believe the response we had to ‘Hail’ and we would like to share our gratitude with everyone who has found enjoyment in listening to it, those who have sent us their kind words, those who have attended our shows and those who have given advice and shared their passion for music with us. Thank you!!!

In the meantime, we wish everybody a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous new year indeed!

See you on the other side of New Year’s Eve!

Ryan, Alex and Tom
