Warm, personal & honest songs that beautifully capture the growing pains of life & love.
Colchester artist Johnno Casson may be also known to many of you as Snippet , the funky folky wonky pop multi instrumentalist, who has delivered an extremely well received range of vibrant releases in the last few years in the shape of 4 e.p's and the debut album ‘Slowly slowly catchee monkey’. In the process Snippet became the most played artist in the history of BBC Introducing:Fresh on the net and was described by Q Magazine as “reminiscent of early Beck”.
This is music with a bitter-sweet bite that lingers like that big kid spoiling for a fight at the end of the school day without seeing that you have a light saber behind your back. A sense of longing never felt this good. We invite you to discover Johnno Casson for yourself.
Whilst preparing for a run of Snippet live shows, Johnno found time to write an album's worth of new songs with a new acoustically minded sound and decided to release this under his real name of Johnno Casson.
Johnno has an innate ability to deliver quirky, intelligent and infectious songs.
On Johnno's forthcoming album 'Window Shopping' he takes a sidestep from the bouncy left-field electro pop music of Snippet into a collection of beautiful, personal, melancholic, honest & acoustic flavoured songs which capture the most interesting nuances he finds in people, in his own experiences and life in all its seeming simplicity.
This is an album full of surprises with songs moving from epic to emotional, from beguiling to compelling, from heartfelt to darkly humorous.
This is music with a bitter-sweet bite that lingers like that big kid spoiling for a fight at the end of the school day or a light that just refuses to go out, refuses to lose its shine or turn its back on you. A sense of longing never felt this good.
Johnno Casson’s album 'Window Shopping' (produced by Wim Oudijk) is released on 8th October 2012 on Folkwit Records.
