All The Way Home: Leighton Jones

All The Way Home by Leighton Jones was developed as part of the 2015 Skye and Lochalsh Talent Development Initiative.

The EP is an immersive tale of a love lost by the sea, found by the sea and brought back home by the sea. The record is inspired by the two places Jones calls home, the Isle of Skye where he moved with his parents when nine years old, and West Yorkshire on the Keighley Worth Valley Railway where he spent his early childhood.

It draws stylistically on the musical influences, geography and atmospheric parallels of these areas – the folk music of the islands, colliery brass bands, wide-open moors and mountains, the ocean and big horizons.
