The Staves (Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor) released their debut album ‘Dead & Born & Grown’ back in 2012 to widespread critical acclaim. The sisters’ ability to deliver pin-point harmonies alongside exceptional lyrics and musicianship evoked as much praise on record as applause on the stage. Over the next 18 months The Staves and their band-mates hit the road relentlessly, performing their songs to packed houses on both sides of the Atlantic. They concluded their 2013 festival run by opening Glastonbury’s Other Stage, and joined Pyramid headliners Mumford & Sons as special guests that same evening. Their headline touring culminated with a sold-out Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.

The Staves Blood I BledThe ‘Blood I Bled’ EP is the first public outing of new tracks written by The Staves. The title track ‘Blood I Bled’ is taken from the forthcoming studio album produced by Justin Vernon and features a full supporting cast of his Bon Iver band-mates.

Resolutely confident and deeply emotional, there’s a heightened and supremely focused sense of drama and atmosphere in these new songs and recordings.
