Daniel Shutt from Leeds introduces us to a name that will be unfamiliar to many.
Our second Readers’ Pick brings to our attention a Texan singer relatively unknown in the UK, despite a back-catalogue of nine albums stretching back to 2002. Lovers of Bonnie Raitt or Shelby Lynne are in for a treat. Here’s what Daniel had to say about his choice:
“Bonnie was touring the UK in late February 2020 and the night I saw her, I can remember the most I was worried about was catching the train home in the snow afterwards, not realising the storm that would soon engulf all of the UK.
This song, co-written by Chris Stapleton, will always remind me of the early days of COVID-19 when so many of us had to be apart from the ones we love, and that longing to be together that is so beautifully captured in this song.”
‘Readers’ Picks’ invites you to send us your suggestions for a piece of music that you love and that you think others would love too. It could be a video clip of a particularly memorable performance or a particular track that you love – audio tracks can also be suggested. Your choice can be vintage or modern, legendary or obscure, so long as it’s any good!
If you want to suggest something please supply the following:
- Your name and location
- A link to your choice
- A few words (maximum 100) outlining why you have chosen it.
We look forward to hearing from you.
