How is this guy not better known? Maybe the music is somewhat thematic, based on 70s/80s singer-songwriter formulae. Maybe the lyrics are too lateral? For me these are strengths; the poetry of Red Weather and Sylvia Plath's Lullaby are particularly beautiful taken as a kind of stream of consciousness with classy rhythmic use of rhyming. Easter Morning is another stand out track but really all tracks are pretty solid. A fellow Welshman too (look out another compatriot Georgia Ruth).

Every so often you stumble upon a wonderful talent.

One such stumble led me to the wonderful music of Jack Harris.

This album, The Flame and the Pelican is flawless. Beautifully written and exquisitely performed from The Rehearsal all the way to the perfect Donegal

Buy the album, then see him live, then you're hooked

I didn't know too much about Jack Harris until a friend recommended I listen to this, and whilst I'm not usually into the folk-rock kind of thing, I found this to be very accessable. Without wishing to thrust any comparisons onto Jack, it reminded me a lot of the early David Gray stuff, which is not a bad thing at all.
