Home has always been an elusive concept for Amends. Over the years, they garnered a loyal fanbase in Sydney's local scene through honest introspection and lyrical storytelling. Their highly anticipated debut album "So Far From Home" showcases a band with depth and wisdom that belies their youth. It blends the alt-country influence of artists such as Memphis legends Lucero, with the modern rock n roll sensibilities of Dave Hause. It's a distinctly mature approach as singer Luke McDonald explores themes of love and all its pitfalls, disappointing those we hold dear, being an outcast, and learning to live with our failures and shortcomings.
"So Far From Home" was produced and mixed by Tom Sigal and mastered by Aaron Dobos (British India, Stonefield, Ceres, Amanda Palmer). The album also marks the permanent addition of Ellen Tamp on bass and violin, rounding out the four-piece line-up.
