John Smith has been lauded as one to watch for some time now, attracting effusive praise from peers and press alike. He has opened for the likes of John Martyn and John Renbourn, guested with Jackson Browne and Rodney Crowell, and played sessions alongside David Gray and Joan Baez. Headlong is John’s fifth album, and the impressive rollcall continues, as he employs Cara Dillon on backing vocals and Sam Lakeman both plays and produces. Dedicated to the memory of John’s close friend, John Renbourn, Headlong is a beautifully constructed collection of songs. John’s voice has a gravelly clarity and soulfulness that wraps itself around the listener like a warm blanket.
