Jon Budworth is a singer/songwriter originally from Lancashire but now very much an honorary Yorkshireman living in the bustling market town of Otley. Jon is a relative latecomer to the wonderful world of folk and acoustic music having spent many years cast adrift in the dark and seedy underbelly of rock. Jon changed musical direction in 2010 after happening upon a youtube video of Richard Thompson playing his beautiful and evocative Beeswing. There has been no looking back ever since.
We All Share The Same Sky is Jon’s first full length album. It features nine self-penned tracks and one traditional. Some of the tracks are more ‘produced’ than others but all started life on just an acoustic guitar and voice. Jon played most of the instruments himself but also enlisted the services of some excellent local musicians. Wendy Ross-violin, Lynne O’Malley-backing vocals and Phil Snell-mandolin. The songs cover various cheery topics including depression, war, insomnia, musings on life in general and, oh yes, a song about a house!
