John Blek – Empty 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.
