The Embers, due for release on 7th February 2020, is the fifth solo long player from Cork’s John Blek. This time it was recorded in its entirety at Wavefield Recordings, Clonakilty with Brian Casey Producing/Engineering and musical contributions from Mick Flannery, Matthew Berrill (Ensemble Eriu) and Davie Ryan (Notify, Atlantic Arc Orchestra).
John Blek is much loved for his enthralling live show full of humor, pathos and his impassioned musical delivery. A master storyteller and a stunning fingerstyle guitar player. A must see act and a true artist.
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.
Pre- orders will be shipped on the week after album release on the 7th.
