Independent musician and virtuoso guitarist Jon Gomm releases his new album Secrets Nobody Keeps today, Monday 25th November 2013.
To celebrate, Jon has released a brand new video for album track ‘Telepathy’ which can be seen here:
Jon will also be playing a special online-only virtual launch gig for the album on a ‘pay what you want’ entry fee basis on Sunday December 1st 2013 at 8pm GMT. For more details and to buy an e-ticket for the gig visit – http://bit.ly/gommgig
Not content with just rounding off a near sold out 30 date UK headline tour as well as appearances in China, South Africa and Europe, Jon will soon be announcing a full South American tour for April 2014 followed by a full tour of Ireland in May 2014.
The album has already been critically lauded with Total Guitar hailing it as “perhaps the best percussive guitar album we’ve ever heard” and awarding it a 5/5 review.
Produced by Whiskas, whose expertise at painting sonic landscapes in the studio and his background (as founder of the legendary DIY label Dance To The Radio and the band Forward Russia), made him the perfect fit musically and business-ethic-wise for the project, Secrets Nobody Keeps was 100% crowd funded in the short space of 4 weeks in a whirlwind PledgeMusic campaign that drew on the power of Jon’s millions of fans and viewers worldwide.
The album title itself, ‘Secrets Nobody Keeps’ is a nod to Jon’s gratitude for the power of social networks. Ever since the day a simple one word Tweet from Stephen Fry linking to Jon’s Passionflower video (nearly 5 million views and counting) started the snowball rolling on his career, he’s been an advocate of, in his own words, “having that private little moment of discovery on Youtube, then sharing the music everywhere.” Gomm’s list of high profile fans also includes the legendary Eric Clapton, Chaka Khan, Jon Anderson, David Crosby, Tommy Lee and Devin Townsend.
