Countdown To Sunset is an artist who deals with a number of human emotions in a way that lays bare the truth of each thought or feeling – highlighting, in an authentically pure manner, the imperfections that make up a life.
The set up is simplistic, minimalist even. Occasionally the voice & guitar are supported by additional elements that really help brighten things up.
Full to the brim with heartfelt songwriting & seemingly effortless musicianship that is a pleasure to listen to. Well worth exploring.
A refreshing take on the concept of Christmas in music. Far from loaded with the sound of bells & excitement, this is incredibly personal & emotional.
Sometimes a good song is all that’s needed; nothing fancy or over the top to enhance the ideas – just the song, and a performance that means something.
Every element assists the music & emotion as they evolve. The voice rises in passion, the instrumentation intensifies, the lyrics become upfront & direct.
The pairing of the two vocals has a certain energy & feeling of togetherness. It makes you feel involved in the moment, an incredibly enjoyable effect.
The initial drop at one minute in is inspired. What follows is a hypnotic, impeccably original take on an absolute classic. So much individuality.
It makes sense to express these ideas in such a raw, real way – these are stories people can relate to. Music & memories go hand in hand for so many.
Join the superb Acheini Ben-Ameh & Roy Dalley as they perform originals as well as classic covers from Tina Turner, Dusty Springfield, The Eagles, and more.
The intricacy of the guitar playing is incredibly skillful & gives off the impression of there being much more to it than a single instrument.
There’s a sweetness to the song that is quite unexpected – for the most part, the sense of metaphor is prevalent, but it works well in both instances.
