Born and raised in the United Kingdom, singer-songwriter Wolfe Jackson moved to New York a few years ago to hone his craft and absorb the music scene, and then out to Los Angeles. His soon-to-be-released second record, Nobody Knows Me (Better Than You) has several good, gritty rock-and-roll tunes that show me he found the real LA, and not the one Hollywood thinks it is.
Jackson shows his versatility, though, on a wonderful ballad about how we handle our memories, particularly the sad ones. It’s called Photographs and is basically one man and his piano, with just the right amount of strings added in to convey pure emotion. We’re pleased to premiere Photographs here on Twangville, and keep your eyes peeled for the full EP soon.
