Jono McCleery - Wonderful Life - out on Counter Records



Jono McCleery Wonderful Life

(Digital single) Counter Records COUNTDNL040, 2011-06-27

After his Tomorrow single released on Ninja Tune last summer, Jono McCleery returns with Wonderful Life, a beautiful, stately cover of the 80s Black classic. At the hands of McCleery and his producer Fybe, the whole tune is stretched out into an aching lament which ends up not a million miles from the work of James Blake, a tune where the space between notes is as important as the notes themselves. Jono McCleery completed his first album, Darkest Light, in 2008. The record was self-produced and funded by fans, including folk-star Vashti Bunyan and BBC radio DJs Tom Robinson and Fiona Talkington. His new album There Is is scheduled to be released first week in September.

a sampler of Jono McCleery's double A-side single Wonderful Life & Garden, out June 27th 2011. From his forthcoming album with Ninja Tune 'There Is'

Press Release :
Jono McCleery returns with "Wonderful Life", a beautiful, stately cover of the 80s Black classic. At the hands of McCleery and his producer Fybe, the whole tune is stretched out into an aching lament which ends up not a million miles from the work of James Blake, a tune where the space between notes is as important as the notes themselves.

"Garden" sees McCleery back on his own material, a driving, emotional song which shows once again that McCleery is so much more than just someone with a great voice. The remix comes from the one and only Seiji. The don of UK electronic music pitches Jono's vox up in the stars and build a hypnotic broken groove around them. The package is rounded out by Fybe's own remix of "Raise Me," which he reimagines into introspective electronic strands which wind themselves into Jono's sweet-as-a-nut harmonies.

Jono McCleery completed his first album, 'Darkest Light,' in 2008. The record was self-produced and funded by fans, including folk-star Vashti Bunyan and BBC radio DJs Tom Robinson and Fiona Talkington. Jono has toured with the likes of Gil Scott Heron, Bonobo, Fink, Jose Gonzales, Little Dragon and Portico Quartet and cites his main influences as John Coltrane, Nick Drake, Bill Withers, Jeff Buckley and John Martyn. His new album 'There Is' is scheduled to be released first week in September.
