Driving under the label of ethnic country music, Lost Highways bring together elements of country, folk, and middle Eastern musicianship throughout their releases, often taking on classic songs & throwing their own energy & style into the process.
David SweetLow brings together a gentle folk sound & a well-traveled perspective on this single Lean On Me. There’s an immediately delicate warmth to the track, the acoustic guitar picking & SweetLow’s near-whispered, smooth & heartfelt vocals walk hand-in-hand.
Make sure to find the time to listen to this EP in full. Carl Lorusso Jr. has that special something that music fans have missed lately – this organic, soulful, natural ability to embrace & entrance the listener. Feeling all at once familiar & fresh, the songs brighten your view of modern music & remind you of the wonder that still well & truly exists.
Roses and Cigarettes fuse thoughtful, heartfelt songwriting with stunning vocals and expressive guitar work, and this EP is a must for genuine music fans far and wide.
Inches From Sin write and perform from the heart, so regardless of genre, it’s a song that connects in a natural, believable way. Furthermore, though the topic is clearly personal & unique in story-line to the songwriters, it’s presented here in a somewhat vague, widely accessible manner.
Spike’s voice has a traditionally rock-ready tone, so to hear this broken down performance, among talk of the evil of men – it hits with an additional level of pain.
The song itself promotes appreciation in a glorious way and this too adds to the heartfelt vibe of the whole moment. Stunning work, a pleasure to add to the playlist.
As a songwriter, Palko paints a picture from his own meandering viewpoint – telling stories but always still seeming reflective & personal in his presentation of them. His experience as an artist & musician is clear, and this, his ninth studio album, is one that’s easily worth the time it takes to experience.
It’s no easy feat for an artist to simply sit with an acoustic guitar & captivate an audience with his words & melodies. Will Adams seems to achieve this every time though. This album is one that calms you down to the point of deep thought & genuine self awareness.
There’s a clear level of freedom within the writing, a certain sense of being carefree – lost in the harmony, wrapped up in the melody – and thanks to all of this in unison, the effect passes over to you as you listen.
The whole thing provokes thought and invites you to consider yourself and your world a little more closely. The song itself is a beautiful piece of writing and performance, more than fit to accompany that process.
Jamel Myles’ story has been told here in an open and painful manner, which is really the only way to tell it – and it needs to be told if we are ever to see the end of this hatred and evil at the core of bullying and prejudice
