Rob Larkin writes & performs from a place of passion & experience, so the finish is always very polished, very well crafted, and simultaneously very natural seeming.
There’s a gorgeously interwoven sense of humanity & community about the sound, about the song in general, which further reinforces this idea of ‘no matter what’ – this concept of permanence, of unconditional affection.
Taking a touch of John Butler Trio & a dash of something a little more pop-driven – Jason Mraz comes to mind – Jack Shea offers up a refreshingly well crafted, uplifting soundscape & melody for his unapologetically honest new single.
This album manages to feel short & quite epic in proportions at the very same time. Across The Board put out new music & creative content as often as possible & there’s no question as to how mighty this level of experience allows their sound to be.
The Silver Bayonets write some of the best songs out there in rock music right now. Their energy & lyricism always get to you, and although this track has been approached from a slightly different angle, the authenticity & inherent character of their sound remains.
Emily’s voice leads with a softness that appears undoubtedly genuine, and with that comes an inclination to really listen to the lyrics – at which point the authenticity of her writing & her whole approach to creativity reaches even greater heights.
Make A Scene strikes with the concept & melody required to make certain it lingers in your mind. The sound is still his, it stays true to his creative desires, but the whole process has been cranked up a few notches & the progression pays off.
The raw passion & energy that Elisabeth brings to the song is infectious, motivational even, and the finish production-wise gives everything the power it needs to strike hard.
Stunning. A totally immersive & addictively emotional song that sky-rockets Zach Andersen to a whole other level of songwriting.
This is exciting music that throws everything onto the table & does so with style & depth. You’ll recognise their music after listening to just a couple of songs, though the album in its entirety is where the real experience lies.
The music is immense, the hook is familiar in an instant, and so when the energy reaches that peak you can barely contain your inclination to sing along. It’s a mighty song made all the more powerful by its delivery.
Taking a dash of Beach Boys, a flicker of Jack Johnson, and a fair helping of something a little more emotionally folk-like, the band emerge as dedicated songwriters & passionate musicians.
