Debut EP, Deep Down, Official Release – 16th June 2017


"I have been waiting years to produce a sound like this at River House Studios. Of all the production work I have done over the last 25 years, including my work with The Tea Party, Secret Solis' EP, 'Deep Down' is in the top five of work I am most proud of." - Jeff Martin (The Tea Party)

Between sold out tours of Australia and Canada in 2016, Jeff invited new Indie folk / rock duo Secret Solis to record their debut EP, Deep Down at River House Studios near Byron Bay. The sessions produced a five track album of indie folk / rock anthems, the tracks resonating with both Led Zeppelin’s driving acoustic rock and the ethereal ballads of Pink Floyd. Jeff's eastern palette adds an eclectic flavour to the Deep Down EP that is reminiscent of his early albums with The Tea Party, as in Splendor Solis and Edges of Twilight.

Secret Solis was formed in 2012 when established Cairns-based singer/songwriter; Kian Eder met Cally Pysden, a pianist and singer/songwriter from Adelaide. Before meeting Cally, Kian's music was heavily influenced by Pink Floyd, The Tea Party, A Perfect Circle and acoustic rock crossover artists like Ben Harper. Collaborating with Cally added a new dimension to Kian’s vision, elevating the music to new heights with her soaring ethereal vocals the likes of Enya, Dido, Sia and Amy-Lee. Enter Jeff Martin as producer and musician using production techniques straight out of Jimmy Page’s playbook, and Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) on drums and you have a special magic happening in the mix.
