“Through the Deep Dark Valley” THE OH HELLO’S

See on Scoop.itMusic for a London Life

“Hello my old heart. How have you been? Are you still there inside my chest? I’ve been so worried. You’ve been so still, barely beating at all. Oh, don’t leave me here alone. Don’t tell me that we’ve grown for having loved a little while. Oh, I don’t want to be alone. I want to find a home and I want to share it with you. Hello my old heart. It’s been so long since I’ve given you away, and every day I add another stone to the walls I built around you to keep you safe. Hello my old heart. How have you been? How is it being locked away? Well don’t you worry. In there, you’re safe. And it’s true, you’ll never beat — but you’ll never break.

Nothing lasts forever. Some things aren’t meant to be. But you’ll never find the answer until you set your old heart free.”

Luke Jackson – Kitchener Road

See on Scoop.itMusic for a London Life

Luke Jackson performing Kitchener Road at The Merchants Inn, Rugby.

Luke is nominated for two prestigious 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – the Young Folk Award and the Horizon Award for the best emerging talent.

 

Luke impressed the audience at a recent Cecil Sharp House gig, supporting Martyn Joseph. This teenager has a voice you could get lost in. He has a musical maturity and a songwriting ability that belies his years. His roots may be firmly within folk music but his exuberant stage performance@ CSH almost suggested emerging rock star! He continues touring the UK until Dec 9.

One to watch.

Go seek him out!
