Taken off his recent twelve-track album ‘To Whomever It Becomes‘, Monsters Who Sleep fervently brings us the vivid story of wanting much more in life and the urge to get away from heart-crushing mediocrity on ‘Death In A Texan Manor‘.
Monsters Who Sleep is the stunning solo project of Joshua Richard, the authentic indie folk singer-songwriter from the port city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, which is on the East Coast of Canada.
He delights our eager senses with his signature emotionally-charged music about the fleeting past, putting his future dreams to the fore, with a spellbinding style that lights up your eyes and fills your stomach up with lyrics that are so real.
This is a song that has been brought back from years ago when it was a metal song, re-imagined now and sung with a look to that moment when he was so unhappy and just wanted to live in a big house in Texas for the rest of his life.
‘Death In A Texan Manor‘ from Nova Scotia’s Monsters Who Sleep is a memorable journey into the mind and the belief that you can indeed get out of any situation you are in.
He sings with heartfelt passion that translates into a performance that breaks through the walls of self-doubt, so you can walk through onto the otherwise and follow your dreams to completion.
