Eroded is Jayson Norris' fourth studio recording and a 5 track collection inspired by songwriting legends such as Johnny Cash, Ben Harper, The Police and Radiohead.
Eroded showcases Jayson's more intimate side in an attempt to get back to his roots. These songs are mature, cleverly crafted offerings with beautiful flowing melodies and addictive choruses.
Of the album Norris says , “Eroded is all about a journey, an adventure. Sometimes it feels pointless and hopeless and you could give it all away to someone else. It's about yearning for that special moment and just when you think no one is listening or feeling what you're trying to say or do, there comes a glimmer of hope”.
Norris invites everyone from home and abroad to experience the album release collectively and simultaneously on October 17th at 8PM as he streams his live performance from his current base in London.
“With social media being such a powerful tool these days, there’s great opportunities to connect with a wider audience. With Facebook Live you can perform live to an audience as well as interact with them. I’m really excited to perform my e.p. for the first time to a global audience, plus, the e.p, is being released digitally simultaneously. If people like what they hear they can go and purchase the e.p. straight away with a simple click.”
Produced by Norris, Eroded was recorded at Rangiputa Records studio in Essex, UK and at I am Giant Studios in London with Paul Matthews ( I Am Giant ) on engineering and mixing dutes. Jayson’s musical talents have infiltrated the e.p. from vocals, piano, guitar to bass to strings and string arrangements.

When I sat down with Australian rockers The Delta Riggs lead singer, Elliot Hammond and bassist Michael Tramonte (Monte) all I knew them for was the fact that Elliot thinks he’s Noel Gallagher and they ruin people’s nights, but as we delve deeper into a fantastically, strange conversation I discovered that the people who say such things are false.
