Song Of The Day: "Be Your Man" by Rhys Lewis

Hey guys!

When you're writing about a song, you're most likely to have that song on repeat throughout the entire process of writing about it.

At least that's how I like to handle it, whilst I work on reviews.

And honestly - that's how you find out whether you like a song or not - because listening to the same track over and over again, can get on your nerves. I'm sure you all know what I mean.

But fortuantely, today's song did not get on my nerves - at all.

So please let me present you our SOTD.

- Song Of The Day -
"Be Your Man" by Rhys Lewis

Rhys Lewis is a singer/songwriter based in London, UK.

His sound is going to make every classic Soul lover's heart beat - combining Soul with elements of Folk, Rock and Blues, Rhys has quickly created a signature sound which will draw your attention to his work.

Spending most of the past year in studios in London, Nashville, Stockholm, Los Angeles, Berlin and Isle Of Wight, the young musician has been writing and recording songs for his upcoming debut album.
His debut single "Waking Up Without You" hit #1 on Spotify's Viral Chart and reached 170 000 streams within two weeks.

Follow-up single "Living In The City" was just as strong and has now been streamed over 1.3 million times - a statement which probably speaks for itself.

His third single "I Know The Feeling" was written for a friend who was going through a tough time. The song and its music video adddress the importance of men's mental health.

And just last week Rhys released his newest track, "Be Your Man" - a powerful ballad.

"Be Your Man" starts off with a beautiful, yet fragile piano melody, which already lets you know this song is going to be an emotional one.

It's the personal and honest storytelling, that makes you feel like you've experienced the heartbreak yourself. The words sound relatable and grab your attention from the very first line until the very last.

Rhys' voice guides you through the song and you can almost feel the pain, as if you were the one experiencing it. It's raw, it's honest but still oh so soulful.

Whilst listening to the track, you can easily overlook the minimalistic arrangements, due to the song being so powerful and gripping - but the simplicity, of just the piano and the vocals, is what creates such vulnerable atmosphere.

The song ends with the same melody it started with and leaves you in an emotional, yet enjoyable state.

Once again Rhys Lewis proves that he's a talented songwriter who can transport feelings through his music.
