I was browsing Twitter the yesterday when I noticed that Gilles Peterson had posted a link to Instagram.

Because I am essentially a Gilles Peterson groupie and hadn’t started following him on Instagram yet, I decided to do so.
It was a good decision.
This was the next photo I saw.
Because I was on my phone anyway I typed Matt Deighton into Spotify and found the album, You Are The Healer. I’m really glad that I did.
It’s kind of like a cross between John Martyn, Terry Callier and Paul Weller; finding out that he was the vocalist in Mother Earth and therefore responsible for the amazing Jesse, made a lot of sense. It sounds like an autumn morning, and would undoubtedly sound great on a sunny afternoon. He’s done a couple of albums since and I’m looking forward to hearing what else he has to say. Obviously, he hardly sells any records. Maybe he should get his foofa on.
In the meantime, I’ll be keeping my eyes on Twitter and Instagram for more great new music. Which just goes to show…
