Hear No Evil Presents... Jono McCleery
Posted 19 Dec 2011 by Pete
Following on from the success of Jake Morley's performance at LEON's on Old Compton Street as part of our 'Hear No Evil Presents...' series we decided to recreate the experience but with a festive twist.
Where better to throw our Christmas party than LEON's basement which evokes feelings of being sat in the cosiest living room of the most well-read person you know. With the lights dimmed and surrounded by walls of books, the perfect atmosphere was created for us to dish out the mulled wine & mince pies and welcome Jono McCleery to the stage.
Signed to Ninja Tune, Jono's beautifully ethereal sound was the perfect complement for a December evening. Luckily we had enough warming mulled wine on hand as his captivating sound sent shivers down the audiences' collective spine.
Jono has recently released his new album There Is to huge acclaim from the online music world, having been described as "Miles Davis, Massive Attack, John Martyn, Fink and Radiohead wrapped up in one exquisitely produced album". He has been appearing alongside some of the most exciting musicians around at the moment including Bonobo, Jose Gonzales, Jamie Woon and Little Dragon.
Jono is currently touring Europe but is back in London and performing in Soho on 3rd March so make sure you catch him then. You can check out the rest of his tour dates here.
