Following on from 2015's highly acclaimed 7 track EP "This Family Tree", Luke Jackson returns with his trio for his third full studio album that promises to build-on his enviable reputation as a master storyteller in the vein of Richard Thompson, with a voice which, according to Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2, is reminiscent of Jeff Buckley.

This album demonstrates Luke's assured and mature writing, tackling issues across the emotional and social spectrum, from the gentle and fragile to the brave and challenging. His distinctive voice goes from strength to strength, with increasing range and emotional depth.

There's a more contemporary feel to the songs, but they are firmly rooted in Luke's distinctive rootsy blues-infused sound, but it has a fuller feel than the previous releases. Luke doesn't shy away from tackling difficult subjects such as Alzheimer's in "The Man That Never Was", suicide in "That's All Folks" and mental health in "Aunt Sally" but this is beautifully balanced by uplifting delicate love songs like "Kansas" and "Better Man" and ends on a high note with the anthemic "On The Road"

This is definitely Luke's most complete collection of songs to date and will continue to consolidate and extend his reputation as one of our most influential and captivating young songwriters.
