Influences: I wish I'd written "Little Palaces" by Elvis Costello, "Rain Roll In" by Eilen Jewell, "Tangled Up In Blue" by Bob Dylan, "The Great Affair" by The Chemists (under-rated Birmingham indie band that I was in, circa 1990), and Laura Marling's "Suite" from "Once I Was An Eagle".
Keepin' it unreal in the pubs of Whitby (occasionally London) since 2004.
If you want to call me by name, I'm Jon Horne. If you like the words, more of them are available in bookshops, Amazon, and Kindle Store.

Sorry mate this FAWM had been a fail due to learning to be a parent! It's too late now but you're welcome to help yourself to the lyrics.
Well, you're very kind to imagine I'm too young for Aztec Camera! Thanks for the comparison, I was quite surprised at that. Nevertheless I know Roddy Frame shares some of the same influences as me, so I'll take that compliment, thanks!
As for the second lines struggling to rhyme, we'll that is an ongoing issue for me, though this time they seemed to come easier than usual. Not totally sure what to do about it if I'm honest!
Oh! I always have my songs marked so people have to sign in to listen. I can change that.
hi there, I’m not sure what you mean by unlock.
Hi Jon, piano stem emailed to you. Thanks, Simon
Thanks for your comments on "Now You Are Gone"...much appreciated...please do write something for this...thank you!!
Thanks for the lovely comment. I've made the track downloadable. Enjoy!
Thanks for the kind words on Terracotta Bureaucrat! Download link has been enabled
yeah, I could never keep the modes straight, until a few years ago i got “volunteered” to teach a beginning music theory class, and had to learn them in a hurry. Nothing motivates like the fear of looking stupid in front of a lot of high schoolers!
I updated the post to include the lyrics and commented as well. thank you so much again for doing a demo!
hi there, I’m so sorry I haven’t been on fawm (I’ve not been feeling well lately). I was very happy to listen but would like to wait to comment for when I’m more clear-headed. thank you for taking the time and again I’m so sorry for not responding sooner
Hi there. Thanks for the comment on my colab. I think that some mixing and arranging on that one will happen post Feb.
That’s so amazing to hear that you liked Yolo, thank you for listening 😀
Haha! Ok...I won't tell you your stuff is shit. Can I at least say it's crap??? 😉 Off to listen!
Hiya. Good to c u again.

Thanks for the comment Jon, I am pleased with that song, I'll have to give it the attention it needs.
Looking forward to more from you.

I heard your songs only at the end of 2018, so I'm looking forward to following you all month this year!
Wotcha mate, yeah I found me way back here ok.
Good to see some familiar faces.

I enjoyed your witty songs last year. Hoping it wasn't a one-off appearance
