Keaton Henson - You don't know how lucky you are (2011)
"...it's sad - you'll love it... " and she is right! I played it about 5 times in a row....
The 23-year-old songwriter from London first came to light as an illustrator and visual artist (he has had exhibitions worldwide and will publish a book this autumn) had never intended for his music to be heard as he hates performing live as he suffers from "crippling panic attacks". Fortunately (or is it unfortunately) for him, he has been put forward by Radio One as one of their ones to watch in 2012.
I just can't believe I hadn't heard of him before! As a fan of Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith, Bon Iver, he's certainly got some elements of all three, with a fragility, that comes across that seems genuine. He's gutted!
|"....I've decided not to perform..."|
Upon further reading I discovered he's released a video in March 2011 for a song called Charon - which shows a puppet committing suicide - and has had over 30000 views. This boy is certainly sad - we'll have to watch him!
