Irish singer-songwriter Barry Locke has returned with the release of his 4th official release, the much awaited ‘One Will Make The Jump’.
Cited as the 1st track of a trilogy of songs from Barry’s as yet unreleased album ‘ O N E ‘, OWMTJ is a song about purpose and intention. It’s about driving yourself forwards, pushing back against all of those things that hold you back and to go boldly after your dreams, taking your life into your own hands and committing to the calling in your heart.
In Barry’s own words “This song was written 8 years ago and really it was the reason I left Ireland. I used it to reinforce my decisions and now, after an unfortunate disaster which saw me lose 4 years of unbacked up recording data, the song has never been more appropriate. We managed to salvage it just in time for the release. I hear it in my head all the time, reminding me ‘Keep Going’ you know? It’s very important to me how it’s come back round like some sort of unintentional prediction that I was going to need to find the strength to continue after losing so much ‘ready for release” music. It’s sort of been a blessing really…”
The track also comes with a homemade lyric video which was also released on July 5th. Watch here. OWMTJ is succeeded by ‘One Of These Days’, which is available as a live session on YouTube and the previously Released ‘Home Is Not Your Enemy’.
