Jackson Lake is a UK based artist and singer-songwriter who has been gradually making headway in the UK Country music scene since the release of his first album in 2015. His blend of both contemporary and classic country, along with the warm and wide variety of his 20-year career as a performer result in a powerful delivery of his thoughtful and irresistibly catchy original songs of love, war, heartbreak and headache.
'After the Rains' is the the brand new single following his latest release 'Lost & Found' which hit #1 in the UK country album charts back in 2021. The song was written and recorded in May 2022 whilst Jackson was unable to be on the road with a broken hand. The guitar, played with just two fingers and the addition of harmonica draws on some of Jackson’s folk inspirations and will inevitably draw comparison to singer-songwriters in the style of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. “After The Rains” was in-part inspired by news reports of the Ukraine conflict but making the theme more universal, dealing with human resilience and effectively asking “what next?”.
From the listener's perspective, the folk-driven instrumentation gives the track a sense of home. Although the lyrical content draws on recent conflicts, it also provides a sense of hope that we can hold on to the love that we have made irrespective of what is going on around us.
Release Date: Friday 24th June
