"All I ever wanted was for people to feel what I feel - the magic of music" - Bap Kennedy, 2016
The one-time purveyor of post punk mayhem in The Energy Orchard has long been bracketed in the box marked "Americana" for his solo work. As the title suggests, the Northern Irishman's latest effort does feel like a fresh start, as it bottles up some of the old, er, energy!
This is most obvious on the fizzling, fiddle-laced Revelation Blues, while the title track suggests a man finding happiness with his "true love"
Bap Kennedy has been making albums for the best part of 25 years, and on this evidence there is still plenty left in the tank!
