The Long Way Home by John Paul White

I’m looking forward to John Paul White’s soon to be released album The Hurting Kind.
The Long Way Home is the first single and promises a continuation of themes of yearning, but maybe a little playfulness is creeping in.

New Music From Both Sides Of The Civil Wars – Joy Williams / John Paul White

It was a bit surreal to get notifications on the same day from both Joy Williams and John Paul White, the former members of duo The Civil Wars, that they each have new songs out.

Williams has released Canary. (and another track, The Problem With Wanting)

White’s song is My Dreams Have All Come True.

What’s So by John Paul White

John Paul White was one half of dissolved duo The Civil Wars.
He’s just released a solo album called Beulah.
It’s a very accomplished guitar and vocal driven work that traverses a range of rock/folk/country/americana/acoustic/electric styles while still sounding recognisable to Civil Wars fans. There’s sadness, happiness and maybe some wisdom in these lyrics.

Here’s a track called What’s So.
