This week’s First Signs Of Love track is ’21, Promises’ by Jacko Hooper, a delicate ode to musical aspirations.

“I want to live on the stage, so I can buy you a house one day, I know it seems far away, but I mean these words I say.”

As the song progresses it appears this journey is not going to be without it’s challenges, his impassioned vocals soar and elevate this song to become something truly very special. The chiming opening chords and powerful fragility to his voice could easily lead to Jeff Buckley comparisons but it’s also clear that Jacko Hooper has ideas of his own. Jacko Hooper is an exciting talent and a simple choice for this week’s First Signs Of Love. #FSOL.
