Song Of The Day: "Citizen Of The World" by Josh Savage

Hey everyone!

Music deals with so many emotions.
It reflects our deepest and most unique stories, it documents our feelings and sometimes it presents history.

When music is influenced by politics, not only does it connect like-minded people, it also vocalises what can be difficult to express.

We are thrilled to see more and more artists use their voices to share their opinions, whether that's on stage, on social media or through their music.

Today's SOTD is one of those songs that makes you think and stays with you for a while, so enjoy it.

"Citizen Of The World" by Josh Savage

Josh Savage is a singer/songwriter originally from Winchester, UK and is currently based in Berlin, Germany.

His sound is so versatile that you just need to file it under Alternative.
So far Josh has independently relesed two EPs; "Spaces" (2014) and "Quatre Épines" (2015), the latter 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 right here.
Over the years Josh supported artists such as Jack Savoretti, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Razorlight and more.

His singles, "Whisper In The Snow" ft. Alice Pearl and "Ghosts" have racked up hundreds of thousands streams.
He followed up that success with "Blue Luck", a gripping and powerful song which introduced his fans to his eletronic side.

And now he's here with "Citizen Of The World", a ballad which will most likely make you think and reflect.

Although the song has been kept very simple and only features Josh's voice and the piano,
the lyrics dive deeper into the emotions a lot of feel towards today's politics and movements.
The way his warm voice delivers the honest and powerful lyrics really allows you to settle into the song, to feel the emotions, to think the thoughts that led him to writing the track.

Josh told us that he wrote the song after the result of the EU referendum: "I've had the fortune of playing my music around the world and met the most wonderful people on my journey. The song is about their "kindness without borders" which rekindles my faith in humanity and gives me hope."

No matter what style or emotion Josh goes for, he always manages to send a message which allows his listeners to feel understood and represented.
