Joe Chown - Head Above Water 

Release Date: Out Now

I've been keeping an eye and an ear on Cornish singer-songwriter Joe Chown for a while now and I'm pleased to hear this new material matching the promise he has shown over the past couple of years. 'Head Above Water' is a fiercely strummed acoustic tune that takes the passion of Frank Turner, the gravelly vocals of Springsteen, the punk ethos of Crazy Arm and the raw emotion of Paul Armer to make an enthralling and brilliantly honest piece of songwriting. Chown is a rising talent but he's doing it the right way, with good songs, raw talent and a sense of purpose beyond simple success.
