Longy - Promise to my People


To welome the summer sun we are proud to bring you one of the most sincere and exciting singer/songwriters that we have seen in a long time. SS’s are normally seen with the same detestable look that the acronym deserves, normally too quickly dismissed as one in the same Longy is a little bit different, mainly in his acceptance in not trying to differentiate himself.

A lonesome performance under a bridge sets the tone for a harrowing and wrenching track which has all the poignant poise of an acoustic song, plied with personality every twanging string strikes a chord not only through the body of the guitar but the body of your soul. Arriving from Leigh-On-Sea in Essex the decaying glamour of the British seaside rings through every note and that accepting of the inevitable is what lends a little more existential substance to whatever his subject may be.

With influences ranging from Ice Cube to Charles Bukowski, what is clear is Longy’s love of lyrics and his intent of compiling a mass of songs dripping with wordsmithery justifies his mysterious nature as most listeners will have a fairly clear image of the man. Simple and heartfelt may seem prehistoric in a time where escapism is the first choice of the populous, but let’s face it some of the most genuinely beautiful things are.
