Shaun Scratchley makes music for the road, and in between. The talented songwriter has made some incredible thematic albums and collections that span his thought process during the creation of music. His latest collection is no different, called 303 for the famous Arizona highway. This is the title track from the EP, 303.
From the catchy opening riff to Shaun Scratchley having expressive, image heavy vocals, this is a perfect long drive song. It proceeds to really draw the essence of his thoughts, the way the highway treats him and how he respects it. It is melodic, glass bead indie rock-having all the beauty and sound that would put your heart at ease. His vocals are unstrained as well, almost singing in a state of deep consciousness. The production also focuses on his voice, it is up close and personal, creates a connection from the listener to the songwriter. Harmonies ensure the simple song has a lot of pizzaz, and the open road beckons. Shaun Scratchley is taking us down the 303 with just this one song, and it is beautiful, elegant and as open as our imagination can get.
His album You and singles like Forbidden Love are worth looping for hours. Sideways (2004), would be a perfect movie for this kind of song, and vice versa. Enjoy Shaun’s expressive songwriting and hook melodies with his single, and follow him for more like this!
