ABOUT EARLY TO BED:


Early to Bed is a cross-atlantic collaboration between Meagan (Wisdom Tooth) and Henry (Me and the Horse I Rode In On). Meagan lives in the USA. Henry lives in Denmark. Together they make sounds.

Henry and Megan have never met and found each other on the Internet- they have been collaborating ever since.  In Megan’s words:  “I know how to write songs but I can’t lay down a solid instrumental track for the life of me, which is where Henry comes in. He listens to the songs I send him, feels them out, and then translates them into something more polished and eloquent; something that articulates better what the original versions are clumsily trying to communicate.”

A PHOTO INTERVIEW WITH EARLY TO BED The innovative website A NEGATIVE NARRATIVE make interviews with bands, but instead of answering with words, the artists have to take a photograph for each question. We are collaborating with A Negative Narrative on this single-series, and they have made photo-interviews with our single-artists. Visit http://anegativenarrative.com/ and see more bands’ photographic answers to their interview questions.

THE COVER SONG:

We have encouraged the single-bands to make a cover version of a song they think deserve more attention. Early To Bed have chosen to cover “Pair of Bonnie and Clydes”, originally performed by Virgil Shepard Walters.

Early To Bed’s Meagan Day says:
“Virgil Shepard Walters is a disappeared band. I was really into this guy’s music four years or five ago, and he had an internet presence and everything, and then all the sudden it was like he got sick of himself. We all do sometimes, don’t we? Anyway, he erased himself, he’s nowhere to be found.”

The only place we have found traces of him on the internet, is on this last.fm page:
