Introducing.. Jono McCleery
Please welcome new Ninja signing Jono McCleery, a man whose voice has been compared - with good reason - to the likes of John Martyn, Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley. The first fruits can be heard on 'Tomorrow', where Jono's sumptuous voice is run up against plucked classical guitar and double bass (which he also plays), harp, strings and the subtlest of programmed percussion. The balance between the organic and the digital is pitch perfect, effortlessly maintained. It reveals McCleery to be not merely in possession of a great voice, but a great talent as a songwriter and musician. The impression is reinforced by 'Alive Again', a song of understated yearning that sucks you into its world and holds you there until its last, fading notes. :: Pre-order 'Tomorrow' on download now.
