Soul-funk and immediate positivity in both subject and style – Shep Eppinger works hard to uplift and inspire listeners, with the fearlessly hopeful and inescapably catchy It’s Gonna Be Alright.
Retro in tone but bright in production and clarity, the single and video join forces to present a beautifully captivating, deeply human ode to survival and possibility.
There’s a clear sense of oneness at the heart of the work, along with a dash of faith and a welcoming, fun aura on the whole. Shep has poured his soul and his own natural optimism into the process, and this shines beautifully throughout.
Backed by a series of visuals that progress from people struggling to people consumed by joy, both the writing and the presentation, in audio and visual alike, speaks volumes on behalf of both realism and belief in better.
Impossibly infectious, the song draws you in from the outset, feeling nostalgic yet effective, and later gets you hooked indefinitely as that chorus pours through and repeats just a couple of times over.
Nicely done – enjoy, and feel better!
