JOHN BLEK: John Blek is much loved for his enthralling live shows full of humour, pathos and his impassioned musical delivery. A master storyteller and a stunning fingerstyle guitar player. A must-see act for 2020 and a true artist.
Due for release in February 2020 ‘The Embers’ is the fifth solo long player from Cork’s John Blek.
‘The Embers’ will see widespread release in Europe and the UK via K&F Records and Hometown Caravan and in Ireland via John’s own imprint We Are Rats Recordings (WARR). Available on digital, CD and gatefold 180gram Vinyl.
After the fires of love, lust, life and revolution have burned out the embers are all that remain. ‘The Embers’ is the new album from John Blek consisting of 9 visceral songs. Reflections and memories from a time after the affair.
