We have an influx of tender, thoughtful music coming through the submissions box these days and each seems to serve a different purpose. Some are excellent companions when you’re an emotional wreck. Some would make the perfect soundtrack when faced with a long stretch of road. But when easing into a fresh new day, good mornings should unfold to the music of Ruarri Joseph.
Joseph is a London singer-songwriter who sticks to what he knows best – friendships, relationships and family. Previous albums were recorded in a small shed, pegging this sensitive soul as a solo artist. But it seems that his fourth creation, Brother, required more than one man could produce alone. Joseph “found” his band during unusual but moving circumstances – the celebration of a fallen comrade (for more, watch the video). To use the artist’s own words, “Brother is a love letter to the years that were and the years that will be.”
“Anyway” is the first of many lovely tracks, proving there are few better ways to honor a dear friend than to remember him through music. Free for your downloading pleasure.
