Discovery: Simon D James

Dearest Lovely World is the latest release from singer-songwriter Simon D. James, with the track being a sunny and joyful ode to life, and how good it can be.

The driving beat that follows the rest of the song is an interesting choice for this style of track, and mixes thing up a little, with the rest of the instrumentation being pulled along by the rhythm. We also thought the violin solo was quite beautiful, adding an almost mournful contrast to the mostly upbeat tune.

If you’re sick of winter and want something to remind you of the summer, then the new song by Simon D. James may be an ideal listen for you.
