Jack L

I don't know if anyone is aware of Jack L outside of Ireland, I hope so as he's a firm favourite here by the Doors. He played the Galway Festival last night, (sold out as usual) and he's got a new album out - Broken Songs. There is a new openness to his writing, and although you can still hear the influence of Jacques Brel and Scott Walker, these tunes are simpler, less theatrical and beautiful. Have a listen:

Wicked Way

Apes and Angels
