Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Light - Lynette Williams
I'm always a sucker for a good, (deceptively) simple song, and New York singer/songwriter Lynette Williams has released a lovely indie soul/folk called "Light" which is just that. Relying totally on vocals and acoustic guitar, "Light" is one of those tracks that I knew needed to be on DSD as soon as I heard it.
Check out the track below:
Williams' voice is wonderful; she is an excellent storyteller, as she never seems to be trying too hard, giving her lyrics an emotional realism that can often be lost in songs like "Light". Listening to this song is a lot like having a deep, perhaps regretful conversation about a relationship, and connecting to another person, all wrapped up in three minutes.
Williams feels like one of those artists that would be absolutely amazing to see live, in a small, intimate venue, and I hope that you, if you enjoyed "Light" will give her EP Love Thee, Not Chaos from last year a look as well, for more, intimate, beautiful indie soul/folk.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
Remember, if you want me to put these playlists on other services (like Spotify), let me know on Twitter (I've linked it below)
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the playlists for:
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself.
See you again next week!
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
