John BlekEmpty Pockets

We may be an island of sensitive singer/songwriters but John Blek (top) is a cut above the rest as the Cork-based musician shows on his new single, the first from his album The Embers due next year.

A hugely empathetic tale of struggle in hard times is complemented by Doniirawan‘s heartbreaking video of a homeless busker’s trials and tribulations.

“This is my fortune; what is the cost?” Blek ponders stoically.

You can catch John live at The Cobblestone, Dublin, on October 18; Cleere’s, Kilkenny, October 19; and De Barras, Clonakilty, Cork, October 20.

Nick says: Any colour you like as long as it’s Blek.
