Nick Hedden makes his debut with the emotively iron-wrought single “I Promise You”

“I Promise You” is the candidly poignant debut Acoustic Pop Rock single from up and coming artist Nick Hedden. Even when you’re just listening to Nick Hedden’s vocals when there are no instrumentals for them to fall into, there’s powerfully raw energy behind I Promise You which borders on ethereal.

Any fans of Lewis Capaldi, James Bay, and James Arthur will undoubtedly be adding Nick Hedden to their playlists after hearing I Promise You unfold, it isn’t all too often a voice so mesmeric, and sentiment so undiluted hits the airwaves. While there’s no shortage of lovelorn singles with stripped back instrumentals, I Promise You has the potency to make your soul feel suitably rearranged.

Chaise Releases Her Third Ethereally Light Acoustic Pop Single “Far Away”

Up and coming Ohio-based singer songwriter Chaise has recently released their latest Indie Acoustic Pop single “Far Away”. The concordant melodicism of each instrument which sits in celestial arrangement in Far Away feeds into the fact the single resonates as an indulgent offering of catharsis.

There are few tracks as soulful and pure as what you will hear in Far Away and while not many Pop artists get away with fractured, fragile and breathy vocals, there’s a distinctively quaint appeal to the soundscape which Chaise has created for her third single. As much as I liked the track, I’d love to hear stronger vocals from Chaise in the future which make her passion and motivation behind her tracks even more palpable.

You can stream and download Chaise’s latest single which was released on May 10th for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.

Trevy Leon – Stay in California: Organically Captivating Acoustic Pop

“Stay in California” is the latest Acoustic Pop single from up and coming artist Trevy Leon who isn’t lacking in the capacity to captivate you through his intricate guitar progressions and harmonically striking vocals.

While many may rate the likes of Ed Sheeran, Trevy Leon’s distinctive style resonates with a rare poignancy, there’s no plasticity or forced anthemics. Stay in California was a single designed to captivate instead of becoming an infectious earworm. While the main body of the single runs through acoustically, to bring out the outro Trevy Leon utilised a soul-piercingly striking electronic guitar riff paired with fuzzy reverberant digital effects. So, if you want to check out an Acoustic Pop artist who hasn’t been manufactured and still possesses organic depth Stay in California comes highly recommended.

You can check out Trevy Leon’s latest album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

Cynical Order – Meant to Be: Celestially Mesmeric Acoustic Pop

While the prelude to Cynical Order’s latest single “Meant to Be” may be fairly archetypal, once the single kicks into verse you’re treated to layers of potent expression which went into the orchestration of the track. Each note in Meant to Be adds to the celestially raw tonality of the acoustic Pop single which provides the perfect platform for the domineeringly arrestive vocals to be placed upon.

Meant to Be is fairly different from how we heard the up and coming band back in November with their single Deus Ex Machina with their darker EDM/Rock-driven sound. Yet Christin’s gently mesmeric and simultaneously strikingly distinctive vocals in the slow and transient ballad prove just how dynamic Cynical Order’s sound is. There’s literally no way of knowing what the powerhouse of rhythmically-gifted artists will put out next.

Plastic Messiah Has Returned with His Second Single “Strange”

“Strange” is the stunning new single by acoustic pop artist Plastic Messiah AKA Daniel Karlsson. The melody may have been scarily similar to “Time After Time”, yet, the reinvention of the timeless soundscape was just one of the reasons why the single was resonantly sweet. And with a vocal range as arrestingly wide as Plastic Messiah possesses, it’s hard not to anticipate the up and coming artist climbing his way up the charts. To further the appeal to his sound, the lyrics transcend the usual archetypal lyricism within the genre. It’s no secret that ‘strange’ girls are infinitely endearing. The lyrics to Strange poignantly allude to the frustration felt by someone who loves a dysfunctional person. The lyrics “but you’re my weed supplier” didn’t fail to leave me endeared by the Plastic Messiah.

You can check out Strange which was released on November 2nd for yourself by heading over to SoundCloud now. You might also want to check out Plastic Messiah’s acoustic hip hop rendition of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”. To call it mesmeric would be an understatement.

Dante Palminteri – Beautiful: Soulfully Sonorous Acoustic Pop

Any fans of Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and Jason Mraz are sure to love the delicately romantic soundscape which Dante Palminteri has cooked up with his latest single “Beautiful”.

In the sweetly melodic and deconstructed acoustic single the instrumental arrangements have been kept fairly simple by the New York-based singer songwriter. Yet the pure amount of soul which was poured into the track gives the soundscape an enthrallingly rich resonance. To give his latest single an extra edge the outro to the track meanders into a jazz style progression which doesn’t fail to draw you into the quintessentially accessible style of the up and coming artist. Dante Palminteri’s aural vibrancy shines through both his experimentally quaint guitar chords and his arresting vocal capacity. In short, if you’re looking for a good-vibe Acoustic Pop single you won’t be disappointed with Beautiful.

annabella – Picky: Ethereally Light Acoustic Pop

“Picky” is the first single released from Annabella an up and coming US-based singer, songwriter and performance artist’s up-coming album “Yellow”. Whilst her musical maturity may seem beyond her years, she’s had plenty of time to perfect her ethereally light sound through performing and studying music through her childhood which has enabled her to possess such a resounding aural command at such a young age.

Any fans of Tom Odell, Daughter and Lucy Rose will definitely appreciate the quaint soundscape which Annabella has created with her single Picky. With her subtle and stripped-back vocal style, the single is as easy to listen to as breathing whilst the melodically instrumentals meander through the progression of the single.

Sabrina Soares – Plan A: Rolling with the Lyrical Punches of Acoustic Pop

While the prelude got off to a shaky instrumental start, once the band version of Sabrina Soares latest single “Plan A” kicked into full momentum it was hard not to fall into appreciation for her unique acoustic style. Whilst there are no shortages of up and coming Pop acts, the Toronto-based singer songwriter possesses a raw, quintessential, honest sound which incorporates elements of Pop and Brazilian rhythm. Whilst there was a quite strong reminiscence to Ed Sheeran’s Folk-tinged Pop style, her fast paced vocal deliveries in the verse proved that she has approached her sound with the desire to create something prodigal and fresh. And that’s exactly what you’re treated to with Plan A

You can check out Plan A via SoundCloud from October 21st.

Evan Petruzzi – Breathe: Expressively Soulful Acoustic Pop

Breathe is the debut single from Singer Songwriter Evan Petruzzi. The Long Island, NY-based up and coming performer uses acoustic instrumentals as the perfect platform for her raw and beguilingly sonorous vocal capacity. Her vocal talent shines through the lack of effects on the track, whilst it may be perfectly produced, her sound is kept honest and raw to allow the lyrics to truly resonate.

To describe her style as captivating almost feels like an understatement thanks to her expressively soulful style. The 5-minute duration of the track gives plenty of room for progressive experimentation, which Evan uses to infuse anthemic rock instrumental build ups into the track. There really Is no wonder why her music appeals to such a wide audience.
