GuestPost – Jon Veale

Many Times Before is the third single from Wiltshire-based songwriter Jon Veale – a story of resisting temptation; the song was written earlier this year during the lockdown. It features the vocals of Paul Stagg, the guitar of Neil Hopkins, the trumpets of Felix Lailey, and the big name of Woody from Bastille fame on the drums (his second collaboration with Jon)

The song is catchy with a slight funk edge and features a dramatic, almost cinematic middle section that surprises the listener. ‘I had the basic structure of Many Times Before for ages, but when we went into the studio (Badger Set in Devizes), that’s where it took off and went in a direction that I couldn’t foresee, but I ended up loving it, and I hope you guys do too’ (links to listen below)
