Reliably informed

A conjured and sophisticated naivety spreads across Jack Aaron Greensmith’s single, Live Off The Land. Carefree particularity assembled with observations that ring through from the opening moments, an acoustic guitar gearing up to deliver a track of wonder and ambition.

From that echoing, singular strum comes a tender build, one that presents Greensmith as an artist with delicacy and sophistication at his core in a similar vein to Donnie Emerson. Folk constructs are clear throughout; living off the land and the fears of ageing, a timeless response that fits in with lyrics that feel similar to that of John Steinbeck’s storytelling. Greensmith creates a delicate and marked treat, with the perils of the folk genre navigated expertly and intimately.
