Jonas Alaska – Diamond In The Shadow (Acoustic Session)

We’ve been loving the new album from Jonas Alaska – Fear Is A Demon (see episode #78). If you haven’t heard it, go get it now! Links below.

One of the best songs on this album is “Diamond In The Shadow”, and we are happy to premiere a new acoustic video of this song!

Jonas says of the track…

“I wrote “Diamond In The Shadow” right after David Bowie died. He was my first musical hang up, one that lasted for 15 years. I felt an enormous emptiness when I learned that he had passed away, and the world suddenly became a more boring place”

Watch the video and let us know what you think!
