“A collaboration between Euros Childs and Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub” says pretty much all you need to know about Jonny.
A free EP before Christmas and now this month the pair’s debut thirteen track album and a tour. The record does favour fans of Euros Childs but as The Line Of Best Fit review put it: “the collaboration is a harmonious one, and one that highlights both musicians’ distinct styles to create an altogether different, yet timeless debut.... With their dream-like and often enigmatic lyrics, Jonny evoke slices of sunshine pop effortlessly and the pair’s simple, yet wonderfully melodic harmonies are a platform from which Jonny can accentuate their light-hearted lyrics.”
Jonny play The Deaf Institute tonight in Manchester before moving on to Birmingham, York, Middlesborough, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sunderland and then Europe. Support tonight only is from Laura J Martin who mixes eastern vibes and jazz rhythms into her acoustic folk-pop - definitely worth getting there early to catch her. Advance tickets are £7.50 or pay more on the door.
