Apologies – this should have been out a few weeks ago. Life has taken over of late – aye the real one.
So this was the email I got back at the end of November
We’re looking (if possible) to have our single ‘Renée’ (out 1st Jan 2014) from upcoming EP ‘Skin To The Bone’ featured in your blog.
We will also be having a launch night for the single in King Tuts Wah Wah Hut on Friday 27th December with tickets priced at £7.
All proceeds from lead single ‘Renée’ and the launch night ticket sales will be donated to the Shelter charity who will be striving help the 4,847 homeless children in Scotland this Christmas.”
So that came from Jonny Jack and if I may be so bold as to say fucking hell !! Fair play to you guys – thats bloody generous !
Heres the pressy type blurb…………….
Jonny Jack is one of the UK’s most promising musical talents of this era with ‘The most instantly recognizable and unforgettable, raw, soulful voices in a long time’ – NME. And he’s Scottish.
Since starting out gigging at the age of 14, Jonny has toured the length and breadth of the UK. Along the way finding himself on the same publishing label as fellow Scot Calvin Harris (Three Six Zero) for debut single ‘Wide Open’ in 2011, striking up a relationship/gaining expert advice from Kylie Minogue’s former management (A&P management) and playing sold out shows up and down the country (King Tuts Wah Wah Hut Summer Nights festival 2013 w/ Sunshine Social).
Now Jonny is set to release his first independent debut EP entitled ‘Skin To The Bone’ with a full Scottish tour to boot and he wants you to know all about it. Recorded in 2013 with a full band including brothers Paul, Michael and good friend Douglas I’Anson at Glasgow’s Stealth Studios
‘Skin To The Bone’ involves following your dreams, falling in love, hard work, breaking up, doing a bit of partying, with a dash of growing up.
‘The EP is really a diary of my inner monologues over the past 2 years – travelling all over the UK pushing myself to make this dream become a reality whilst still trying to have some sort of social life in amongst unintentionally falling for/ breaking up with the girl who lives up the hill from me. That was interesting. If your burning the candle at both ends at some point something will inevitably suffer. And it did. We’re only human. The title Skin To The Bone just kind of stuck with me’.
He has a rich soulful voice – reminiscent of James Morrison at times. Renee is a catchy, groovy wee tune but like it or not its out there for a brilliant reason – I shall repeat………….
All proceeds from lead single ‘Renée’ and the launch night ticket sales will be donated to the Shelter charity who will be striving help the 4,847 homeless children in Scotland this Christmas.
Apologies for the shit post but still struggling with connections etc. Its the thought that counts etc. Go and hit his pages and find out about the single and give it a listen. Its damned fine !!!
