Astronaut is the first single released from London-based singer-songwriter Jeremy Tuplin's Debut album I Dreamt I Was An Astronaut.
The album follows 2 independently released EPs: Open Letters (2016) and Carry The Fire (2014).
His voice has a uniqueness expressing itself through the less commonly used, lower register and his song-writing extends beyond the conventions of the genre. In the wordsof BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson, his music is: "Unconventional, conversational and intimate." The Telegraph Culture Section described his music as, "Stunningly candid...A distinctive deep vocal that has hints of Leonard Cohen and Bill Callahan." Clash Music observed, "A cosmic gem..." with Tuplin "Cooking up something special.,"
Recorded with long-time collaborator Mark Estall at Marketstall Studio, South Bermondsey with some recordings taking place in both Tuplin’s and Estall’s living rooms, the album combines electronic and synthesised sounds with acoustic and organic instruments for a ‘retro-futuristic feel’ branching into a genre which could be described as ‘space-folk’.
The theme that underpins this album is escapism, and with that, visions of the cosmos - a debut worthy of attention.
The artist behind the project is multi-instrumentalist Jo Whitby, a West Country girl at heart but now making roots in the Welsh capital Cardiff. We are big fans of Jo's music at Folkwit Records Folkwit Records
