Blake Havard is your new age storyteller, with a lot of lessons to teach. You might not hear it in some fable format, but his method involves a guitar. A good band behind. As a listener, you just need your favourite drink in your hand and a will to have a good time. This musician represents a future past, and you couldn’t be more delighted. This is his latest single, You Make It Right.
Usually, you’ll hear thousands of songs with these clichés. Blake Havard makes it all new, singing for the moment and person. The chord progression is from the crystal bowl of classic rock. The Petty vibes are strong, and the rhythm is welcoming. It is a frequency switch to 70s radio, where there was a country vibe to the hottest songs. Oh, and I didn’t even look at the photo where Blake is holding the Rickenbacker. That tone just melded with his voice so perfectly, I couldn’t have assumed anything else. Verse by verse, he explains his perspective, while the melodies flow and swoon around him. It is an enjoyable, groovy track with an upbeat spine. It is the kind of song people refuse to sing because they want to be perceived as wise through music. I say, true wisdom lies in making it simple.
Blake Havard has some heat garnering with his singles Bad For Me and Wanted to Believe You. This is an old soul voice, and it is going to be heard loud. This would be perfect in the 2002 movie, Mr. Deeds. Though it flew under the radar, I found it to be a magical love story, and it continues to have a cult following. Listen to his single and follow him for more soulful songs!
