He Was Never Gone
We’ve missed George’s silky tenor tones over this last year. But no more! Never Really Gone, first single of the year is a passionate performance of loss and longing in his distinctively warm style. It’s also the first kindlings of a very busy year ahead, full of bigger releases and bigger stages that will get him in front of people who aren’t necessarily bigger because that has more to do with diet and exercise.
Podcast: Christmas Spread
A spread of genres bring some variety into the shorter days, with George Croucher’s soft but passionate Never Really Gone standing across from the funky fun of Adam Kelly’s Dangerous. Wade Merritt’s anthemic debut Videotape Time Machine bridges the divide, woven about with thoughts about the year and the state of music.
Wade’s debut single Videotape Time Machine is one of those anthemic gems that you’ll accidentally sing down the street when you think nobody can hear you (we recommend you check your surroundings). Inspired by the generation-defining sounds of the 20th century, it’s a joyful and impressive launchpad.
Adam Kelly’s funk and RnB roots melt into a seamlessly modern sound. Polished and infectious, Dangerous might provoke involuntary dancing. If so, you might want to head to his 15th December gig at The Camden Assembly, otherwise he’s promised us a wealth of performances and new releases for 2024.
