Release Of The Day: "Ghosts" by Josh Savage

Hey guys!

Within the past five years, we have been able to learn a lot about this wild thing they call "the music industry".
It's one of those industries you can love and hate at the very same time. 

You have to constantly evolve, be present at all times and you have to be mega passionate about what you're doing.
And whilst all of that keeps you busy enough already, this mad industry still throws enough sticks and stones your way.

So yeah, it's not easy to keep going all the time - but thankfully, there are those hard working musicians who deserve all the respect and support we can offer.

And today we want to celebrate one hard working artist who just released a new song.
Check it out!

- Release Of The Day -
"Ghosts" by Josh Savage

Josh Savage is a self-managed and independent musician, originally from Winchester, UK - now based in London.

His sound can be described as Indie-Folk with Acoustic elements in it. You'll often find beautiful string arrangements in his songs.
So far, Josh independently released three EPs; "Mountains in Hurricanes", "Spaces" and "Quatre Épines" - the last one showcasing Josh's French roots. 

In 2015, Josh played 79 shows with Sofar Sounds - all across America and Europe, in just 5 months. You can stream the documentary made on the road on Vimeo -> "Living Room Tour".

His previous single "Whisper In The Snow" ft. Alice Pearl was played on Dermot O'Leary's BBC Radio 2 show by Jo Whiley and has been streamed over 260.000 times on Spotify.
And on this lovely day, Josh is treating us with a new release - his single "Ghosts".

"Ghosts" takes you on a dramatic ride through emotions.
It greets you with expressive strings, which will walk you through the song.

The verses are kept rather simple, with their focus on the calm acoustic guitar and Josh's warm vocals - a fantastic pairing.
A moody build-up in the pre-chorus prepares you for the big outburst in the chorus; it's loud, it's passionate and it's dramatic - the strings couldn't have been placed better to intensify the atmosphere.

The personal and frustratingly relatable lyrics literally tie you to the song and make you feel emotions, you didn't even know you were feeling.

Leave it to Josh's clever use of subtle backing vocals to underline the dramaturgy of the song
"Ghosts" is yet another proof that Josh Savage keeps on taking things to another level.
