Roots and Americana artist Pokey LaFarge has just released his seventh album Manic Revelations. “The manic revelation is the state where artists create,” says Pokey. “I got to the point in writing these songs where I felt like a house on fire that just kept burning.” He continues, “This album is about confronting yourself. It’s about confronting your city, its relation with the world, and all its people.”
We caught up with Pokey in London as he passed through as part of a short European tour and he kindly recorded a session for us. The first song, taken from the new album, is ‘Better Man Than Me’.
