Discovery: Marty James

Marty James is an American singer-songwriter and musician, with Desolation being his latest track to be unleashed upon the world.

By Jane Howkins

Desolation is a folk-pop song with an incredibly catchy melody to it – I loved the whistling tune that starts the track off at the start. There’s something quite melancholic about the whole thing, despite the song having quite an upbeat melody to it. Lyrically, Desolation is about growing up in a small town and the dreams that one has when wanting to escape such a place, which only adds more to the haunting feel of the track – check out Desolation below and see if you agree!
