Please Stay: Soulfully sweet Bristol singer-songwriter Chrissie Huntley holds on but knows she shouldn’t on the outstanding ‘Supposed To Be’

After a one year hiatus to replenish her sound and to make a few tweaks to what she wanted the world to hear, Chrissie Huntley eagerly returns with absolute aplomb, on her angelic new single that tells us how its ‘Supposed To Be’.

Chrissie Huntley is a wonderful honey-tipped Soul/pop singer-songwriter based in Bristol, England. She sings so beautifully with a calm edge of pureness that is so rare to find, on a heart-racing single that was recorded with upcoming songwriter/producer, Laurence Fazakerley Buglass.

“‘Supposed to Be’ is one of the first songs I ever wrote when I was a teenager and I just got dumped by the guy who I thought was supposed to be “the one”. I think we’ve all been in that position where you know that it’s over, but you just want to hold on and pretend just a little while longer. ” – Chrissie Huntley

After beating her previous anxiousness to leave the house a few years ago, she was inspired to help others with her incredible #LetsTalkAboutIt campaign. This much-needed cause helps tremendously with spreading the word to as many willing ears as possible — about how mental health needs to be spoken about much more to tear off the stigma — to help those who are feeling wrapped down with plastic inside their hearts and minds, and need a hand to breakout from within.

Her stunning vocals and romantic daydreaming memories about a past love on ‘Supposed To Be’, fills you up with so much reflective wonder — as you close your eyes gently — and let her carefully take you on an honest journey whilst holding your hand, through her feelings of knowing that this relationship has ended. You hold on tight as you love them dearly, you need their tender touch, and the way they romantically caress your hair makes you smile so much — however the time has come to part — as you deeply wish that this sweet moment could stay as innocent as it was before, forever and ever.

Supposed To Be’ from the superb Bristol Soul/pop singer-songwriter Chrissie Huntley, bursts through the door to open up a new light, to show us that music really does heal all scars no matter how deep they are. Her sole aim of making people who listen a little bit happier and peachier, has certainly been achieved.

It feels like Chrissie Huntley is only starting to open her wings, with so much beauty and elegance still to come. Genuine souls can win too, if they can fly free.

Alex Bright defies convention with his symphonically visceral electronica album ‘Building’.

Alex Bright

Bristol-based artist and producer Alex Bright is set to release his album, Building, which obliterates the notion of genre and introduces the lister to pure uninhibited electronically-crafted expression.

From neo-classic increments to symphonically cinematic scores complemented with pulsing bass to experimentation with elements of nature; you will find it all on the absorbing 7-track release. Alex Bright isn’t afraid to paint across the tonal spectrum, mischievously throwing together light and dark textures to create stunning sense of utopic/dystopic duality.

With such scarcity of reminiscence,  eclecticism of style and veracity of emotion, Alex Bright’s sound expresses what words cannot, making my job impossibly hard but gratifying all the same. Discovering exceptional producers who defy convention and can still speak to you on a primal level don’t crop up every day.
