Jono McCleery - Announces New Album 'Pagodes'

The brilliant British singer songwriter Jono McCleery (who recently lent his voice to albums by Portico and Maribou State) will release his third longplayer Pagodes on 2nd October 2015 via the If Music imprint - a newly established record label by the acclaimed Soho-based independent record shop of the same name.

Full of beautiful melody, Pagodes is rooted in the folk tradition with Jono's nimble guitar work and incredible vocals providing the foundations for some subtle and exquisite electronic embellishments. The first track to stream is a triumphant interpretation of Robert Wyatt’s Age of Self - a song McCleery was born to sing - its lyrical content as relevant today as it was 30 years ago.

Jono will celebrate the release of Pagodes in London at Elektrowerkz on Tuesday 13 October.
