MP3 of the Day: "Sorrow" by Jim Wurster
When he split from Black Janet after six years with that band, Wurster took a different musical tack, focusing instead on rootsier rock. It's just as interesting, and carries on from his previous band a distinctly tart, melancholic thread.
Wurster's last full-length, 2007's Hallelujah, was a mostly acoustic affair that stood in contrast to the rocking sounds of his previous album, Wake Up! A new one is due out soon, though, produced by Jack Shawde.
Here's a track from that forthcoming album. It's called "Sorrow" and features sweet male-female harmonies. Visit Jim Wurster's official web site and Myspace page for updates on the album and upcoming live appearances.
