Jon McLeod’s, ‘Valuable’ is beautiful in its simple and demure outtake on what ‘is’.
There is a person in front, whom represents the very best of the world that is very hard to comprehend. Delivering a timely and nostalgic instrumental accompaniment, ‘Valuable’, in its ultimate is a solidification of rights of mind and heart.
Difference in style, and alternative in calm – the antics of compelling anguish and celebration, deeply dips into the relevance of Jon’s writings.
He’s been writing, recording and performing in different projects sporadically over the last 10 years and in the past has received airplay on BBC radio stations from Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Tom Robinson, while playing under the pseudonym: The Focussed Distraction.
His singles, ‘Fuck Up’ and ‘The Cavalry Comes’, were released in May 2020, while his 5 song EP, ‘Dream… You’re Awake’ was released on July 24th 2020.
At the end of the year, an album will be offered where “a collection of home recorded songs, written during lockdown periods, based around observations and emotional responses to the current
occurrences in the outside world… when isolation played heavy on the thoughts.”
In-depth and encouraging message of hope and maybe, utter devastation, distinctly thrive in the volcano of emotive anthems, in which Jon’s lyrics provide.
An ancillary assembly, of sight and sound, combine in a roll of enthusiasm that is one and only.
