Beauty can spring forth from the darkest places. When Keane vocalist Tom Chaplin had descended to the depths of drug abuse and depression, even to the extent of facing his own death, there was really only one way to go. With a wife and very young daughter, he finally realized that he was going to lose the things that were truly important to him. His recovery has been dramatic and the songs on his debut solo album, The Wave, document with detail, clarity and beauty the process of healing. I was fortunate to attend his Cardiff concert, it was sublime.
