4 Rad Singer Songwriters You Should Know

Dominick Provenzano

“Twilight Road” 

Choosing a favorite single from Dominick Provenzano’s s/t solo debut was difficult, but as the challenge required repeated visits, I felt up to the challenge. Provenzano’s stellar songwriting style first made an impression on me back when he was performing with Day Before Plastics and, then, Old Star. So, honestly, I just picked a personal favorite with “Twilight Road” but you really need to lock down for the entire six-track release. You won’t be sorry. Provenzano’s pensive indie folk has meat on its bones. Check out the new EP from Dominick Provenzano here

Cecilia Ebba

“Breathe In Breathe Out”

Swedish-born singer-songwriter Cecilia Ebba now calls England home and it was in her London studio where this solo project first began. “Breathe In Breathe Out” is the second single from that effort. On this song, you’ll hear Ebba’s ethereal vocals are layered over a dreamy instrumental landscape to complete the haunting alt-folk sound. After embarking on her solo endeavor, Ebba began collaborating with Lucas Mendes from The Park Studios. You can hear the results of that collaboration on “Breathe In Breathe Out”.

Crys Matthews

“We Must Be Free”

Crys Matthews is a songwriter with a powerful message and voice to match. On her latest single, “We Must Be Free”, Matthews delivers a rousing folk anthem a compelling sense of calm. There’s a gospel feel to the supporting vocals on the track that speaks to the songwriter’s North Carolina roots. Let’s hope listeners take the message behind the music to heart or it could may become one of warning rather than empowerment. “We Must Be Free” is just the first taste of what’s to come from Crys Matthews’ latest EP, Battle Hymn for an Army of Lovers, which is available for your perusal through Spotify.*

Ian Terry

“Cut”

Delaware songwriter Ian Terry has a sweet-tempered voice and somber sound that wraps the listener in gentle harmonies on his new single, “Cut”. Self-recorded and produced, this track has a warm lo-fi sound that feels as intimate as listening to your friend (albeit an extraordinarily talented friend) strum through a song while sitting on the floor in your bedroom. If you enjoyed the mellow of “Cut”, I suggest delving further into Terry’s online offerings through Bandcamp. But, first, start with “Cut” below…
