TUESDAY BLUES! Damien Jurado - Museum of Flight

Damien Jurado - Museum of Flight (2012)


Some singers apply their trade for years, building a loyal, cult following but rarely getting any mainstream coverage and one example of this is Seattle based singer/songwriter Damien Jurado.

This beautiful track features on his 10th and latest album "Maraqopa".  I love it's gentle strumming, heartfelt lyrics and melancholy sound - but then again that's no surprise!

Damien Jurado - John C Reilly meets Jon Favreau


I first heard of him years ago when I read that he was (at the time) one of Thom Yorke's favourite singers - and if he was good enough for Thom, he was good enough for me.

He'll be playing some Festivals this year, including the Green Man Festival! - Must get tickets!!!

Now this is spooky. I spent an hour yesterday evening listening to various Damien Jurado tunes, but couldn't decide which one to post. I wake up this morning to find that you've made the decision for me - and what a cracking choice it is!

Maraqopa is produced by Richard Swift whose own albums I would heartily recommend - a 21st Century Harry Nilsson.
