Jono McCleery - 'There Is' Out Now

Jono McCleery - 'There Is' Out Now

The new album by Jono McCleery, There Is, is out today on Counter Records.

Jamie Woon recently described him in The Observer as “a really fantastic…singer-songwriter,” but There Is proves there’s much more to him than that. McCleery has taken his wonderful, timeless voice and the sheer skill of his songwriting and, with producer Fybe’s talent for electronics and Matt Kelly's arrangements, made a startlingly beautiful and contemporary record. 

There is so much to admire here. The Bryars-esque string introduction to “Tomorrow”, leading to a tune worthy of The Cinematic Orchestra. The tingle down the spine you get when McCleery’s voice first enters on “Fears”. The stately use of space which turns his version of Black’s “Wonderful Life” into something considerably darker and more conflicted than the original. It’s an album of so many subtle, classy delights it’s almost a shame to pick any one.

There Is is available now on CD and download from the Ninjashop and iTunes. Jono will play London's Queen of Hoxton on 13 Oct, with support from Jamie Woon and Jess Bryant - tickets are available here.
