Singer-songwriter and youtube guitar hero Jon Gomm is taking a break from his international touring commitments to play a few intimate shows around the British Isles.
He released his latest album Secrets Nobody Keeps last year, with songs described as "masterpieces inflected with tribal rhythms, pop melodic sense and Gomm’s flowing, draped over vocals that would surely make even Eric Clapton blush." Since the release he's been busy traversing the globe, with tours… Read more
The song is called Everything and it's the 3rd single from my latest album, Secrets Nobody Keeps. It's a twisted love song. It's about obsession, really. It's the song I had the most comments about from the album, which really surprised me, just because it's so prog - nearly ten minutes long, two time signatures, shreddy guitar solo, even cameo appearances from other songs...

I'm gonna be performing the whole of Secrets Nobody Keeps at two very special UK gigs - in Leeds and London - in May. I've specially chosen the venues to make the gigs super-intimate and atmospherey. I've never performed some of the songs live before, so it'll be a unique experience for those who manage to get a ticket.

I'm really proud to announce that my favourite strings are now officially available as a Jon Gomm Signature set! Handmade in Derbyshire by Newtone. These are my personal super-heavy gauge specially chosen after years of experimentation to have a really easy tension at low tunings, and to give a tone that is warm and soulful.
I tune my guitar a tone below concert pitch, and quite often much lower than that. With these strings that brings out a warmth and character completely different to the usual twangy,… Read more

I couldn't decide where to hold the album launch gig for Secrets Nobody Keeps, so... it's gonna be on the internet! I'll be playing live in a studio with 3 cameras and awesome sound, so it should be pretty good!
Tickets are Pay What You Want, and any money raised will go to ChapELFM, a project to build the first ever arts and music venue in East Leeds, the grimy place I call my home.
So the Pledge campaign is over - we reached 100% in 3 weeks in fact, so THANKYOU everybody who Pledged and made the album possible. The relentless enthusiasm and encouragement from social networks and Pledgers made the recording process a joy, which is a new thing for me!
And the epic UK tour is over, with 28 of the 30 dates sold out! Completely baffling, flattering and wonderful. And I had an awesome time playing to you all, there were some unbelievably warm and supportive audiences out there. If you came… Read more
