With his first headline tour set to kick off next week, John Joseph Brill has released one of the songs from his debut EP Pieces as a free download.
“It’s a very personal song about loss. The loss of a lover, the loss of a future but at the same time its tinged with hope,” said the Liverpool-based singer-songwriter earlier this year about The Grape and the Grain which is available for free via his official website. “That naïve, yet charming hope that maybe, just maybe if I don’t think about it for long enough then the fucked up thing might not happen.”
Brill will kick off the run of dates at at the Dalston Victoria in London on 9 November, before moving on to Leeds (14th), Bristol (15th) and Manchester (17th).
Released back in February when it picked up support from Radio 1 and 6 Music, Pieces is streaming in full over at the Londoner’s Soundcloud page. Check out his acoustic beauty The Grape and the Grain below.
