Album Notes
'Distractions of an Age' is the third studio album from Galway-based songwriter JT Songs. Ten tracks culled from a large collection originally planned for a 4-EP release, the album spans a range of musical and lyrical styles while honing in on themes of the battleground of the modern love affair and 21st century existential crises. Highlights include the anthemic 'No Man's Land', the brass-laden 'Goodwood Blues' and the quintessential fan favourite 'The Black Went Down'. Clocking in at just over 48 minutes, 'Distractions of an Age' is a dense and layered album which combines the contrasting styles of JT's first two release while adding a lyrical depth borne from grave experience.


'I have just heard the new JT Songs record, DISTRACTIONS OF AN AGE, and it is positively stuh-ling (to be said with the sincerity of Woody in THIS IS ENGLAND). If you don’t believe me, listen for yourself right here (link).

..JT covers some heartily impressive musical ground. “No Man’s Land” is a bona fide radio hit; “Goodwood Blues” showcases JT’s clever lyrical wordplay; “The Black Went Down” pays respect to classic wordsmiths like Bob and Townes; and, for my money, the boot-stomping anthem “You Just Let Me Go” might be the best of the bunch.'

Love it
What can I say? JT is one of the best artists working today. His lyrics are super witty, his voice is great, and the music supports the 2 in a brilliant way.

I just listen to this album again and again.

I'm not a fan of most folk music, unless it's oozing character, like Devendra or Gyra, and JT's music is at the same category.
