Last year, Derek Clegg released an album that I quite enjoyed (KJC), so I was happy to learn he’s got something new out this year as well. It’s a nice solo album with various instruments, and is just as good as KJC. There’s also a hint of country in there, which is good news if I ever want to do a country-only podcast (which I do).
To be honest though, this isn’t a “listen anytime” type of album – it’s a little on the slow side. That said, there are definitely some upbeat tunes on this album that are pretty good for a “listen anytime” playlist. I still recommend the album even though sometimes it can sound like a bit of a downer (though the lyrics suggest otherwise).
You can download the new album, Beautiful World, from his Bandcamp website.
