The Beautiful Story Telling Styles Of Julia Cannon
A gorgeous new single from Julia Cannon is like a lullabye in the form of an acoustic singer songwriter track that whisks you away with lush vocal harmonies, fiddle, and descriptive story telling and musical changes that make you feel.
"The Shore" is absolutely beautiful and even inspiring in it's own way.
You can almost feel the water running over your feet on the shore when you hear the song and there are so many incredible layered melodies that come together that it makes things cinematic.
There is something moving and touching about the song that has you thinking of memories you had as a child. The track;s deepening feel has a way of digging in and getting under your skin and before you know it, you have been taken by it's natural beauty.
There are elements of classic rock ballads in there almost like Fleetwood Mac but I think that has to do with those vocals mostly.
There is also a personal and one on one aesthetic to it all that makes you really pay attention to the words and descriptions.
There is so much detail that it paints a picture you can see in flashes but vividly so.
This was certainly a page from her own life. A memory of Cannon's that she needed to write about to get out part of the emotion she felt from it. This is what great songwriting is about and it's clear as day with "The Shore".
The artist has a natural passion in her voice and it's just dripping with soul.
One of the greatest things is that you can go back through her library of released music and listen to her varying styles of songwriting and how she has an amazing knack for pop music with natural instrumentation.
It's all very impressive and you can tell she's been singing since she was a kid in the back seat of a car probably belting out harmonies to songs on the radio at 4 years old.
If you love "The Shore", you'll love so many of her songs.
