It’s the first completely new collection of songs by John as a solo artist since he started his adventures away from I Am Kloot. “Leave Alone The Empty Spaces” has been inspired by John’s travels around the UK and Europe performing more than 300, intimate solo gigs.
Travelling in his VW Campervan with his dog Henry, the experience allowed John to explore parts of the country hitherto unknown, develop his solo sound and ideas, and meet an awful lot of interesting people...
The album is inspired by the spirit of liberty, independence, adventure and solitude that John has enjoyed on the road, as well as the diverse emotions that escape and travel can bring about - from sadness to exhilaration.
It’s about rediscovering the romance, intimacy and magic of the live music experience, one to one with the audience.
