With 2016 being as it is, you’re going to need some musical accompaniment to get through what’s coming. With this in mind, we asked Jack Harris, a singer-songwriter from mid-Wales, to curate a playlist to complement your reading experience for Issue 6, Chasing Chimeras. Here you will find a compilation of songs about monsters, about change, and about human folly, and sometimes all of these things at once. The playlist features songs by Robert Johnson, KC & the Sunshine Band and Tom Petty: sit back and enjoy them.

Jack has been described as a ‘priest of song’ by folk singer Anaïs Mitchell, and his latest album, The Wide Afternoon is out now. Read more about Jack and listen to some of his work over on his website.





Jack Harris writes literate, compassionate songs and then goes out and sings them. His new album, 'The Wide Afternoon', produced by Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp, Tom Robinson) gathers 11 new songs, and sets them to a moody, expansive soundscape. It's coming out in November 2016. Jack won the Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk award in 2005. Previous winners include Anais Mitchell, Gillian Welch and Devon Sproule. He was a SXSW showcasing artist at 17. He's played clubs, arts centres and skating rinks across the UK and abroad. He likes doing this above all things.
