John Leighton - Dramatic Life - CD

Regular price £10.00 Sale

'Dramatic Life' is a milestone in the career and personal life of one of Ireland's most ambitious and determined emerging musicians. John Leighton’s debut album reveals the skills of a talented bandleader and composer. The line-up features three of Ireland's most talked-about musicians in saxophonist Michael Buckley, guitarist Mark McKnight and drummer David Lyttle, alongside British vocalist Anna Stott and US bass colossus Michael Janisch.

Leighton's writing merges jazz, country, pop and folk, and albeit a reflection on an individual’s troubled early years, 'Dramatic Life' is more of an appreciation for the experiences which make one stronger. Praised by The Irish Times, with significant airplay on UK radio, including BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Scotland, Leighton's first milestone will surely not be his last.
