I want share with you all the beautiful acoustic music of Jack Burrell. Here is a musician who has been on my radar for over a year, and someone I have supported on my social media sites. Since 2012 he has been busy sharing his music which is a blend of folk and Americana delivered with the help of his 6 string friend. He released his debut EP ‘I Will Run’ in 2015 which included three songs that showed off his songwriting talent. He has now returned with his follow up EP ‘Wild I Will Run, Wild I Shall Stay’. I would like to share a little more about Jack Burrell but he is a man of mystery so I will talk more about his new release.

‘Wild I Will Run, Wild I Shall Stay’ EP is a no frills releases that is all about the music. Regular readers will know I am a huge fan of music that revolves around the musician and his guitar which is what this EP offers to the listener. His guitar skills are enthralling as he brings a captivating balance of finger picking and strumming techniques that help to give this EP its charm. I know Jack has support from other musicians who add extra layers to his music, but I can’t help but focus on what he brings to it. A great example of this is a highlight of mine called ‘Swallow Song’ which has this wonderful sound and you can’t help but get lost into this song, it’s beautiful stuff. Now let’s talk about his vocals, they may be a little rough around the edges but it’s authentic sound pulls you in with it’s charm. I am not saying he sounds bad, not at all, as when you hear the song ‘Under Snow’ you will hear his fine vocals at work. 12742557_1163034777041160_351415568221702091_n

If you were to ask me ‘Why does the music of Jack Burrell stand out for you?’ then my answer would be very easy as it is his lyrical skills. I love the stories that each song tells which are written with a depth that will easily impress. With each song you get taken on a new journey through his way with words, and my favourite song ‘I Will Run’ showcases this the most. On my first listen of this song it stood out for me as it had me hooked from start to finish. All I will say is give this song a listen and you will understand what I mean.

Overall, this is an EP which showcases a musician with great songwriting talent. If this sounds like your kind of music or you’re curious to hear more from him, then head over to his Bandcamp page (click HERE) to listen to the EP in full as well as purchase a copy for yourself while you are there.

I am really enjoying what Jack Burrell has created so far and I hope there is more in the not so distance future. I do get the impression that his sound will continue to grow resulting in something even more impressive. As I am already following him on his social media sites at Facebook and Twitter I will be kept up to date with how his music is going, I recommend you do the same too. These are also great places to find out about upcoming shows.
