Blake’s Fortune Unveils ‘Searcher’

The new single and video from Irish songwriter and musician John Lennon – ‘Searcher’ by Blake’s Fortune is out 20/03/20.

‘Searcher’ is an ethereal tale of love, loss, and hope. It is the first single to be released from Blake’s Fortune’s second album ‘Searcher Dreamer’. ‘Searcher’ is accompanied by a stunning music video directed by A. Parkes and is shot in the beautiful setting of Glendalough. Fusing alternative folk roots with Ailbhe Reddy’s haunting backing vocals ‘Searcher’ invites the listener into a story that ebbs and flows both melodically and lyrically. The viewer is taken on a journey with uncertainty as to what will come next.

The album ‘Searcher Dreamer’ was recorded over a week by producer Darragh Nolan in Asta Kalapa Studio’s in Wexford. 

Ailbhe Reddy’s stunning backing vocals feature on all 10 tracks. Blake’s Fortune is also supported on bass, guitar and drums by brothers Lorcan and Cillian Byrne of Basciville fame.

Blake’s Fortune is the work of Irish songwriter and musician John Lennon who hails from Dublin. He previously recorded and toured with Pina Kollars, an Austrian-born folk rock singer, when they were signed to Peter Gabriel’s Real World Records. 

His debut album ‘Hello World’ was self released in 2017 and garnered positive reviews. His style could be described at alternative folk, and he draws influence from the like of The Divine Comedy, The Magnetic Fields, Fred Neil and BECK

“Searcher is an ethereal tale of love and loss, and trying so desperately to find hope from within a seemingly hopeless situation. The writing, recording and filming of Searcher was very much a cathartic experience for me. I hope it gives the listener (and the viewer) something interesting to think about” – Blake’s Fortune
