From small talk to songwriting, John Jerome’s new single was inspired by a simple, seemingly throw-away comment, from a colleague in the live setting, and resulted in an exploration of the very concept of small town living – more notably, the desire to pack up and escape, with no set plan other than freedom.
Leading with cascading Americana guitars and the crisp and warm sound of live drums, the new single feels like a timeless country rock classic.
Featuring catchy melodies, short lines and proficient yet accessible vocals, the whole thing feels genuinely relatable, and aptly optimistic as it quickly prompts the mind to wander and the possibilities to rain down all around.
Introducing the songwriter on a definite high, I’m On My Way To Somewhere proves a timeless hit, with fine musicianship and infectious, satisfying melodic curves and resolves.
The natural good vibes of the set-up and performance are effectively magnified by the bigger-pond dreams and desires of the lyrics, and so the completed release works its magic with ease. Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come.
