A little while ago Clint Black released a new album on his own. He gave an interview that had lots of great insight including a great description of how music works today vs. how it used to work. Clint said that there are more ways for artists to reach fans today than every before.
That definitely seems to be true. An artist like Zarah Strong can record great music and take it directly to her fans on channels like YouTube or Spotify. Artists are starting to do that on their own and sometimes if they get some traction they’ll partner with the labels and take things to new levels.
So that’s pretty cool and I think Zarah Strong is showing the potential for some good things with her new song.
Chasing The Sun – Zarah Strong
This one is good. The setting for the song seems to be that the narrator is ready to kind of set out into life with the person that she loves. They know that the road ahead might be scary and full of things that they haven’t experienced yet, but together they know they can take on anything. They have each other. They’re still scared, but also excited about the possibilities.
All that is wrapped up in a good melody. It’s a cool song that makes you feel good and positive about life. It’s a good song. I don’t know if it’ll get enough momentum to get on radio, but you never know. We’ll have to see how fans react to this one.
What do you think?
