Richard Schroder excels himself with this single. Beginning with that ever-professional, crisp & organic country sound, We All Start Somewhere progresses to captivate brilliantly, with detailed, fresh story-telling, and a fine balance between scene-setting & emotional honesty.
Richard Schroder’s latest release feels like far more of a pop hit than anything purely country – not that either direction is preferable, there’s just a notably accessible and quickly engaging, memorable aura to this song, making it an easy one to relate to and enjoy.
The relationship & the descriptive nature of the lyrics at the heart of the song shout out for positivity & hold close to a blissful view of the world. As a modern day love song, it’s refreshing – classic yet new, poetic & accessible, and surprisingly (refreshingly) upbeat – the perfect contemporary country single to be shared between lovers.
I’m finding myself increasingly inspired by 2018’s array of new musical offerings. Wildest Dreams is a beautiful addition, a wonderful song with a full, vibrant musical set-up & a central sentiment that seeks to uplift & motivate you to aim a little higher.
The story has relevance & the full throttle energy of the country-rock build up makes this a great go-to track for those long hours spent driving.
