SONG PICK: Joe Connor Little – Always
The tender and stripped down production of “Always” got me instantly hooked and throw in velvety charming vocals and the allure is complete! London-based singer/songwriter Joe Connor Little gives us a taste of his talent with “Always” and pairs the single with two equally pleasing releases the mellow “Moving Away” and the bit more fiery “Closing Time”.
When asked about the bittersweet background of “Always”, Little provides:
“Early Summer 2019 saw the beginnings of one of my life’s more significant relationships. Encumbered by poor timing and unfortunate circumstances, the following months proved to be disorientating and emotional. ‘Always’ was written at the start, and is I think a candid and honest depiction of how I felt at the time; tender, warm and starry-eyed.”
The artist knew exactly how he wanted to portray these deep feelings and explains:
“I wanted to create a sound that echoed that tenderness with an intimacy that put as little space as possible between the listener and myself. For that reason, I limited the use of instruments, effects or harmonies, and dispelled percussion entirely – bar the shaker in the choruses.”
Well done, the intimacy is palpable! Listen to the beautiful “Always”, our Song Pick of the Day:
