The song featured above is called Though I Know. One of our favourites from the album (and it’s a free download on SoundCloud).

This is the description of the album from his website:

What Colour Is Your Raindrop is a personal photograph of all the sights and sounds that have shaped him. From the gaps between notes of Erik Satie to the wail of Albert King, from the serenity of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan to the innocence of Iranian cinema, this debut album is his journey through all of them.
