It’s been a crappy series of weeks, and I’m using music as an outlet more than ever. The writing is officially on hold whilst I try to get as back to normal as possible. Here are some of the songs that have helped me out:
1. Tee Shirt – Birdy
One of those songs I could listen to on repeat all day. Gorgeous guitar tangled around beautiful harmonies.
2. Higher Love – James Vincent-McMorrow
Up there with Birdy as one of my acoustic favourites. He is just captivating. I’ve seen him live and his performances are so personal and emotive, it’s hard not to love. This song is my favourite of his, although I like We Don’t Eat, too.
3. Tyrone Wells – You Make My Dreams Come True
One of my favourite covers. I love this song, and its upbeat quality. But this cover focuses in on the lyrics and it is simply wonderful.
4. Beautiful Birds – Passenger feat. Birdy
Two gorgeous voices in an acoustic gem of a song. What a treat. Something I could listen to all day. Harmonies galore, and simple piano to let the lyrics speak for themselves.
5. Silhouette – Aquilo
A stunning song. I have a love of simple lyrics paired with simple piano. This song is one you need to hear, so if you haven’t listened yet, do it. You won’t regret it. It gives me goosebumps.
