Taken off his latest eight-track album called ‘All for Everything‘, Sean Moriarty gives us the inside look into ‘The Story of America‘ as he sees it.

Sean Moriarty is a multi-talented Ledyard, Connecticut-born, Massachusetts-based singer-songwriter and current farmer, who makes that reflective music for us to ponder on, as he soothingly sings from the heart about what he has seen.

The former copywriter knew that world wasn’t for him and decided he needed to be outside to feel free again. He sings with such honesty, almost shyness at times, his talent is easy to hear but he underrates himself. This wonderfully humble man with a striking voice, has the hair on the back of your neck standing up as you feel his life’s journey, finding his way as he looks for a true home.

This is the lesson to always read the wind and set sail when you know the storms are brewing, as following your instinct is the only way to survive this crazy and very strange world. Doing what you have to do in order to feel fulfilled, is the key that unlocks all of your greatness, even if many won’t understand your journey.

The Story of America‘ from the soulful Massachusetts-based farmer, artist and singer-songwriter Sean Moriarty, is that authentic varnished feeling for the heart, his true stories are derived from working around the country and keeping himself busy. The real inside look is fascinating as he only brings peace and tranquility to an often overly-busy world that seems like it is spinning out of control.

Soulful Steve Schuster is back with united ”One Lonely Voice’

The soulful singer-songwriter from Westborough in Massachusetts, Steve Schuster, returns with his new song called ”One Lonely Voice”. This is a united message of speaking up if you have something positive to say and how we should all support this notion. One lonely voice can indeed change the world and its great that Steve has brought out this song during the highly challenging and stressful COVID-19 time.

I like this song for a variety of reasons and the main one is that it is so simple. You could teleport back to the 60’s and it wouldn’t be out of place in that era of game-changing music. This is ear-food for consumption that won’t make you sad but instead do the opposite and inspire you.

With a happy-soaked base, Seattle-born Steve Schuster’s strong lyrical content coupled with a rhythmic guitar riff & his vibrant voice, ensures that ”One Lonely Voice” should be treasured as one of 2020’s most uplifting theme tunes.
