Video Premiere: Vikesh Kapoor “Blue-Eyed Baby”

vikesh-kapoor-blueeyedbaby1

Happy to premiere this video for Vikesh Kapoor’s “Blue-Eyed Baby”, from his terrific debut album “The Ballad of Willy Robbins”. I don’t know much about folk music but I find there’s a honesty in his music that I don’t hear in a lot of the folk pop that’s become so popular. Really beautiful stuff.

Vikesh is headlining a tour around the UK/Ireland next month, so for those of you who live out that way, I’ve included a list of tour dates along with the video below!
