Singer-songwriter and youtube guitar hero Jon Gomm is taking a break from his international touring commitments to play a few intimate shows around the UK and Ireland.
He released his latest album Secrets Nobody Keeps last year, with songs described as “masterpieces inflected with tribal rhythms, pop melodic sense and Gomm’s flowing, draped over vocals that would surely make even Eric Clapton blush.” Since the release he’s been busy traversing the globe, with tours having taken in Africa, Asia, South America as well as Europe.

But Gomm is delighted to have a bit of time to reconnect with the audiences he knows best. “Music is communication, and that’s easiest when you speak the same language as the people your performing to,” he admits. “My lyrics are really personal, and I try to put that across overseas but it will be really nice to not have to work so hard in that way.”

Jon will be playing songs from Secrets Nobody Keeps, which includes the song Passionflower which has been watched 6 million times on youtube, and which was tweeted to fame in the UK by Stephen Fry, who is among other celebrity fans including Rod Stewart and Chaka Khan.
