Where to start with Jack Peñate – the man writes awesome crossover songs, somewhere between indie-pop, rockabilly and soul and remains an independent artist, despite his success!
His single, Pull My Heart Away, from second album (Everything Is New), was featured in the end credits of the hit film, Charlie St. Cloud. During the 2009 tour, in support of this album, the now known singer, Jessie Ware, performed backing vocals for him, and finally, the track, Every Glance, from the same album, features backing vocals, from singing sensation Adele, who was relatively unknown at that time!
I have chosen to feature this particular song, So Near, as it is just such an uplifting-sounding track – the groove of the song just takes hold of you and his chants of “I’m so near” force you to sing along! The instrumentals of the song are interesting too; it’s such a well-produced, intricately sculpted masterpiece!
Do you appreciate the beautifully happy sound of this song? Have you got your own #FeelGoodFriday track to share? Please share this link with your family, friends and anyone who’ll listen 🙂
