Singer-songwriter and visual artist Jinnwoo is a distinctive new voice. His work, described as ‘confessional folk’ is an outpouring of personal experiences and lingering emotions. Accompanied by atmospheric folk-soundscapes, ghostly string arrangements and exceptional acoustic guitar work, there is something of the fragile delivery of REM singer Michael Stipe in his style, yet the sound is altogether original.
Jinnwoo released his debut album ‘Strangers Bring Me No Light’ last autumn, featuring collaborations with Alistair Roberts, Malcolm Middleton and Kyla la Grange.
Jinnwoo is the most singular new folk talent I’ve heard in some time.’ – The Independent
