Fresh from the sun-soaked streets of Europe, an acoustic sound and style that tips its hat to the buskers and live raw energy of impromptu festivals – Renny Jackson’s River Roots is a pleasure to turn up loud right about now.
Weaving in a quickly likeable hit of song writing, a personal journey intertwined with imagery and poetry that quickly connects, River Roots is as rhythmically engaging as it is melodically catchy.
The live sound is pure and powerful, the visuals accompanying it furthering that sense of being right in the centre of the experience, and Renny’s accessible, genuine vocal tone and performance style help deliver something decidedly honest and immersive; not unlike the Bristol sound of acts like Nick Mulvey.
Throw in a dash of sax towards the end and we quickly realise we’ve stumbled upon an easy hit. A pleasure to know about.
