Uk singer/songwriter Jonathan Day describes himself. “I like the quiet, the animals and the trees. I grew up in between factories, steel hard and iron grey. Long ago my family lived in the borderlands; I guess I’ve always been heading home. There’s something important in the curve of a bird’s wing as it cuts the wind and the jumbled stones which break the earth on a round hill’s top. Something that shimmers and calls in the buzzard’s mewl or the fox’s flash. I try to hold this sparkling stuff long enough to sing it and remember, before it trickles through my fingers back into the earth.”
He has been described as ‘An artist who, whether through the experience of travel or through deep contemplation of his surroundings, has come to terms with his place in the world, and it is utterly beautiful’ (Thomas Blake, Folk Radio UK talking about Jonathan’s A Spirit Library, one of their Albums of the Year 2019.)
Jonathan is old school and favours actual objects – vinyl, cassettes, CDs. A place to see as well as hear an album. Holding something in your hands – that will last and outlive platforms, services and servers. Something solid. “Orphans in the Storm” is the first of a series of online EPs to give you a taste in case you might be interested.
