John Joseph Brill releases new EP ‘I’m Not Alright’
Incredibly talented singer/songwriter John Joseph Brill has just released his brand new EP I’m Not Alright through Kobalt. I adore his powerful vocals! The EP features his hauntingly beautiful new single A Place To Drown, which is my favourite track from this EP, if not my favourite JJB song! I am a sucker for that piano!

Speaking about the EP's inspiration Brill explains,
The EP was intended as the tale of a break up in reverse. It begins with the title track, the moment of realization, 'I'm Not Alright' and ends with the story of how it all began 'The Leaving Song'. In between, in the body of the journey to acceptance the listener is exposed to grief in 'A Place To Drown' and acceptance in 'Smoke'.

Andrew Davie of Bear's Den has both produced and performed on the EP, alongside his band mate's and John's usual collaborators. Speaking about working together on the EP Brill says
We're old friends and for a record this personal I wanted someone I trusted to take care of my songs. I'm delighted with what we were able to create.

Having spent his early 20s fronting London based heavy rock outfit Burning Beard, John Joseph Brill established himself as a mainstay of the West London music scene. The same musical community that bred The Staves, Laura Marling and Bear's Den heavily influenced Brill to explore a more confessional, honest form of songwriting and in 2013 he left his former band and the capital and moved to Liverpool. There he honed his craft as a solo artist, immersed in the oeuvre of Leonard Cohen, Jason Molina and Neil Young he began writing and performing, in his unique baritone style, songs about everything from heartbreak to death and friendship.

John Joseph Brill will headline The Lexington London, on Monday November 20th!
