Stephen James Orr – ‘Someone Real’
Musician Stephen James Orr has released the excellent single ‘Someone Real’ in February 2022. It is a song that needs to be heard this Spring!
A funky and inviting beat opens the single before the atmospheric vocals breakthrough. We adore the jangly guitars, layered vocals, and stunning melodies. They all add texture and a unique character to the piece.
The guitar solo sings out beautifully; it has been intelligently composed and takes the song in a fresh direction before the beautiful and memorable chorus kicks back in.
‘Someone Real’ is simply sublime. It captures the listener’s attention from the get-go and holds it effortlessly.
Orr has been joined by the fantastic vocalist Eunice Keitan on this latest release. Together, the duo has crafted a single that will stand the test of time and one which sets the duo ahead of the competition.
We were also intrigued to see that Keitan has a YouTube interview channel called ‘Too Broke for Therapy’, where she regularly talks to fellow musicians about life. We can not wait to check it out!
In addition, Orr curates a live music showcase in Toronto called ‘Rooftop Revue’, where touring artists play. If you are in the area, you do not want to miss these shows!
Orr says about this sensational release, “The music was inspired by neo-soul and modern pop sounds. I wanted the drums to have an electronic feel versus the acoustic kit, and to write something that had a spacey but constant groove.” Objective achieved!
The duo have worked with Kyle Gamble of Caudal Lure Audio on this single. He has superbly mixed and mastered the song and together the team have created a track that will stand the test of time.
Stephen James Orr is a name to make a note of in 2022. We are sure we will be hearing much more from him in the future.
