Guiding the way with warm & emotive vocals, a simple piano backdrop, and immediately appreciative, faith-focused lyrics.
The simple strum of an acoustic guitar, the equally raw capture of live drums and a subtle electric lead, followed by long-form melodic structuring that tips its hat to the indie legends of yesteryear…
Following on from the clear & rightful success of Free, singer & songwriter Elyse Saunders returns with a beautifully heartfelt country-pop ballad – one that further underlines her talent & passion as an artist.
Beginning with the beautifully uplifting, energizing folk-pop offering that is Pour It On, immediately we’re gifted with strength of song-writing, soulful & expressive vocals, and pristine production.
Creatively taking its time to build & envelop listeners entirely, Crimson Calamity’s single Ghost proves an artistic & deeply emotive hit of story & song, with a powerful sense of humanity & depth at its core.
An absolute anthem of a folk-pop hit – you can’t help but get swept away on the brightness & positivity of the whole thing.
Things soon progress from good to great on the songwriting front, ultimately resulting in a realm that feels partly pop-rock inspired & partly of the Elliott Smith-esque contemplative writing style.
Beautifully crafted, unique in both set-up & concept, and precisely the kind of alternative, organic pop hit we could all benefit from right about now.
A fascinating songwriter, by all accounts, Maria rolls with the natural artistry and intention of each song, not confined by genre or structure or expectation.
“The song on one hand is mourning the loss of a life, but also brings into question how to responsibly consume the information that’s coming towards us at light speed.”
Utilising quickly catchy yet mellow melodies & beautifully thoughtful, intimate lyrics, the EP brings together classic folk-pop songwriting with a contemporary finish & decidedly unique vocals.
Two Stars Collide – two worlds unite; two artists, of varying genres and experiences, work as one to create something powerful.
