For the past couple of years the UK’s JONATHAN JEREMIAH has been making waves all over the place. His style and sound is difficult to pin down, but sophisticated soul folk were quickly won over by the wonderful ‘What’s A Guy Got To Do’. Our man’s been putting the finishing touches to his début album – ‘A Solitary Man’, which is set to be released on March 21st. The same days see the single ‘Happiness’ hit the sales racks, and for once the PR people have managed to describe it perfectly – “bespoke English folk and confessional soul featuring Jonathan’s rich, sonorous voice”.
The single is quite lovely – understated with hugely sympathetic strings courtesy of THE HERITAGE ORCHESTRA – it will remind you of any number of classic soft soul stylists without sounding like anyone else. It augers well for the album.
