Patrick Ames releases his newest single Reawakened 2020 and channels the theme of change and equality. Definitely drawing inspiration from the world and the political climate, Ames integrates the power of our voice. In terms of when he wrote it, he actually wrote this back in January 2017 during the Inauguration Day for Trump. With the style being sung in that of  Rockhouse Gospel, the power of the words and the vocals being full of spirit, listeners want more from Ames. The mix of Ames and Jon Ireson’s guitars add even more texture to this song. Standout lyrics such as the hour has come for the power of belief reiterates how the power of change and fighting for what we stand for is here to stay. By banding together on shared beliefs and justice, we as a world can take inspiration from Reawakened 2020 and march on to bring a new start all of us want to see begin.

Shawna Virago Pioneers With Latest Single Heaven Sent Delinquent

6 Jun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shawna Virago has pioneered and showed us she channels her strength through her music. With Heaven Sent Delinquent, the single talks about escape and how sometimes you have to blaze through to grow. Lyrics such as “I would have stayed but I had too much pride” carries more weight than a typical song. Guitar instrumentals open up the song just enough with rock that you can sense the angst, but not too heavy so that it gets out of the genre of easy listening. Virago prides herself on performing since the early 1990s, an era before social media and Instagram followers. Just raw, real music. The most organic a musician can get. The themes of storytelling and Americana run through the single and will have listeners closing their eyes envisioning the images that she creates with her lyrics.
