‘Empty Pockets’ is the new single from John Blek. It’s taken from the Irish singer’s latest solo album, ‘The Embers’, which was released on 7th February. Of course, the embers are all that’s left after love burns out. Blek has an ear for a beautiful melody and this song showcases his gently engaging vocals and fabulous fingerstyle guitar technique. The video for ‘Empty Pockets’ is well-produced and thought-provoking. Well worth checking out.
