The Sad Lights by Jon Hyde (LP)

The Sad Lights by Jon Hyde (LP)


Multi-instrumentalist Jon Hyde has brought his vocal and instrumental talents to recordings by artists such as Karl Blau, Laura Veirs, The Walkabouts, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, The Transmissionary Six, Jim White, 1Uppers, and many others. Now, he returns with a new collection of songs for his fourth solo album The Sad Lights – his first since 2007.


Nods to some of Jon’s music heroes can be found in the set, from the acerbic wit of Elvis Costello to the melancholic Americana of the Jayhawks, and even to the classic country swoon of George Jones. But Jon’s tunes are not overshadowed by their influences; every song on The Sad Lights lives within its own musical and lyrical landscape, with Jon’s voice, and his originality, rooted firmly in the center.
