We have the great pleasure in premiering ‘Waiting For P To Have a Vision’, the new digital single from Brighton-based artist and troubadour Jinnwoo (aka Ben Webb).
In 2014, Jinnwoo released his debut ‘Your Baby’ E.P. , a series of singles, including the E.P.’s title track, as well as ‘Solo Man’, ‘You Should Be Feeling This Elliott’ and ‘I Am, I Am, The World’s Oldest Man.’ The releases collectively garnered coverage across the music press with the likes of The Guaradian Guide as well as a video session on Folk Radio UK – all accumulating in Jinnwoo being named one of The Independent’s ‘Faces to Watch 2015’.
Jinnwoo’s charms are evident immediately on listening to his spooked folk songs. His distinctive, fragile vocal and confessional reel are laid bare on stark folk soundscapes. Laced with carefully placed and haunting string arrangements and Jinnwoo’s exceptional acoustic guitar work.
It’s a sound which allowed Jinnwoo as an unheard of new artist to work with established producers and artists such as Young Mantana? (‘Your Baby’); Gerry Diver and Alasdair Roberts (‘Solo Man’); Weikie and Malcolm Middleton (‘I Am, I Am, The World’s Oldest Man’) and Noah Georgeson and Kyla La Grange (‘You Should Be Feeling This Elliott’). All were personally sent early demos by this unique new talent and immediately agreed to collaborate.
After a year laying the finishing touches to it, Jinnwoo’s long-awaited debut album is finally set for release late 2016, preceded by the new digital single ‘Waiting For P To Have a Vision.’ The track is produced by Gerry Diver and released digitally on 20 May via Jinnwoo’s label GFM Records.
