2008 album from the West Country-born singer and songwriter credited with bringing folk music to a whole new audience since his 2005 Mercury nominated debut, Kitty Jay. Seth's third album perfectly captures the raw, rhythmic energy of his live shows. Produced in large part by Seth's brother and fellow band member, Sean Lakeman, Poor Man's Heaven represents a progression for Seth's sound. While remaining firmly rooted in Folk, it moves from a more acoustic-based feel to a fuller, rockier sound, underpinned as ever by emotive lyrics and story telling, this time with a strong coastal theme. Lakeman has been branded the 'Poster Boy of Folk' (much to his exasperation), has toured constantly, performing to a heaving mass of 15,000 in the 'New Band Tent' at last year's V Festival as well as on two stages at Glastonbury, and has made significant inroads internationally. 11 tracks. Relentless.
Why No American Release?

"I bought this CD as a used import on Amazon after reading a review in a British music magazine, and I simply love the music. Very energetic, passionate and powerful. Seth Lakeman is popular in the UK, but sadly not here in the US. I highly recommend you give this a listen."
