Fistful of Mercy is comprised of Ben Harper, Joseph Arthur and Dhani Harrison (George’s son) – a supergroup of sorts I guess. The band’s debut album, As I Call You Down, was released last month via Hot Records.
We’ve got a taster for you below, Father’s Son. To be honest we weren’t expecting a great deal and we were pleasantly surprised and it was a reminder that pre-judging a band or song on not very much at all is a dumb occupation. Call it folk, blues, country, whatever you will, slightly more CSNY than the Beatles is what we would say, but most enjoyable and that’s the main thing.
