Performance Of The Day: "Bones" by JC Stewart

Hey everyone!

It's a rainy day here and somehow that just makes me crave beautiful, calming and soulful music.
It's pretty fascinating how much our surroundings influence our taste and mood.

Of course, I have no idea what the weather is like in your area, for all I know the earth could already be headed towards the apocalypse. (#Wasteland, Baby!)
But, if you are looking for a song to thoughtfully look out into the rain, you've come to the right place.

So, grab a cup of tea, a blanket and let's have a proper cliché rain day.

"Bones" by JC Stewart

JC Stewart is a singer/songwriter from Derry, Northern Ireland.

He combines classic singer/songwriter elements with Pop elements.
JC writes about his own life experiences and is often inspired by conversations he has with others,
this results in his songs being honest, direct and vulnerable - giving the listeners so much to identify with.

The young musician is influenced by artists varying from Tom Waits, to Bob Dylan, to The Band and Hozier. These influences give an insight as to why JC Stewart's sound can be so light and delicate in one song but then go oh so dark and anthem-like in others.

JC has been pretty busy releasing new songs - such as "Have You Had Enough Wine?", a gripping and cinematic song that takes you on a journey of confusion and heartbreak. Besides supporting Kodaline, Freya Ridings and Snow Patrol, he also co-wrote "Hollywood" which you'll find on Lewis Capaldi's debut album.
He has a few more support slots for LAUV, Anne-Marie and Vance Joy coming up, so make sure to keep an eye on his socials to catch some of the shows.

Most recently JC Stewart shared the acoustic performance of his latest release "Bones".

Recorded on a couch athestically placed in a field in the outskirts of London, this performance of "Bones" really highlights the ebbs and flows of an ending relationship.
By just focusing on acoustic guitar and vocals, JC has stripped the song down to its bones (#wecamehereforthepuns), showing how well the song works with even just these two elements.

This intimate performance is baring the song's structures perfectly; going from soft and composed to loud and raging, again portraying the sadness and frustration one feels when going through these situations.

The line "it's better to have lost, than never have loved at all" still manages to paint it all in a forgiving and somewhat optimistic light and allows us to move on with a smile on our faces.
