Striving on the simple strength of heartfelt songwriting, Gregory Suarez’ sound and style is an easy pleasure to enjoy.
Around The World leads with an acoustic, folk-pop set up, peacefully organic and with equally peaceful, gentle and breathy vocals to guide you through the poetic stages of the song. From the offset the arrangement appeals, and as the track progresses, the writing and composition gathers more and more appeal.
From humble beginnings, to the unexpectedly anthem-like, choir-style brightness of a hook, from optimism through mild uncertainty, from keys to sax, the whole thing is unpredictable in a beautifully comforting manner. The lyrics hold tight to your attention throughout, and still Suarez maintains this level of calm, of quiet confidence, which lets his lyrics and the overall warmth of his music connect in an all the more immersive and memorable fashion.
Beautiful – increasingly so with each revisit.
