I miss Martyn Joseph. Well, when I say miss I don’t wake up every morning wondering how I am going to get through the day. But when I hear a recording like this it reminds me how much I like simple but precise guitars and inventive lyrics. John Wright, from Coventry, manages both of these, and very well. This is one of those occasions where the opening track snatches my attention, and then I am left wanting for more because there are only four tracks on the CD. Vocals are evocative of a more tuneful Paul Heaton and the guitars are obviously influenced by the aforementioned Mr Joseph. The four songs reflect the obvious intimate respect that John has for God. A singer/songwriter discerning music lovers need to investigate.
