Jonnie Wallace has made big leaps recently ever since his departure into a solo career.
The singer/songwriter has developed strongly, stepping away from the more rock inspired music of his past with former band Ayakara. He is also evolving, changing things up musically as going from previously being solely a drummer to writing his own guitar songs, his new single ‘You’ is released next month. ‘You’ is a charming and sentimental love song dedicated to an anonymous someone. The song is sweet and warm, featuring careful guitar work and well mixed soft vocals. The song features accompanying strings which build up the wooing romantic tone of the song. Jonnie Wallace sings from the heart with a tune that you can’t help but smile and hum along to. The multi-talented musician writes music that’s made for anyone and this song is perfect for easy listening. Jonnie Wallace is inspired by other acoustic songwriters such as Lewis Capaldi but keeps his songs largely personal and meaningful. ‘You’ is anonymous and lets you fill in the blanks for yourself, maybe even reminding you of who ‘you’ would be to you.
‘You’ is released on the 15th of March. Listen to the rest of Jonnie’s music here:
