Jon Epwort 

Turn Off Your Name (Leutonia Records)

The music industry's dying, but the music is doing just fine. In the battle between gimmick and pure talent, it's the latter that Jon Epworth fights with. Despite mastering almost every talent musically and technologically, it's Epworth's voice and thoughts that are exposed in the spotlight. The soul-rocker's lyrics read as poetry out of context and his voice ranges from a Bon Scott wail to a serene Thom Yorke mumble. On "Passing Chords" he sings: "I'm a small cog on a smaller set of gears and perhaps we'll reach a few handfuls of ears." Turn Off Your Name deserves more than a few handfuls.
