If you have never seen Jon Gomm live it is hard to comprehend exactly what it is he does. Listening to this single, the first in a series of releases under the banner of 'The Domestic Science Singles Series', you would be forgiven for believing that you are listening to a band but no... it is just the one guy with an acoustic guitar. No overdubs or studio trickery.
Passionflower is a beautiful ballad with Gomm's voice sounding better than it ever has. The playing is stunning and goes far beyond what most people would thing an acoustic guitar would be capable of and it is this understanding of pushing boundaries and ignoring limitations that makes Gomm so special. The single is available to download for 'pay what you want' from Gomm's website and check out the video while you are there and have your mind blown.
10% of the proceeds will go to The Happy House children's home in Watamu, Kenya.
