A Changing Light is a shrewd track. The instrumentals are kept minimal yet interesting while singer Johnny McFadzean’s crisp, soulful vocals take centre stage. As things progress, they build and rich harmonies come in towards the end to create an uplifting finish. It meshes nicely to the track’s message – no matter how hard things get, hold on and there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Based in the Scottish Borders, Johnny has previously caught the attention of BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music and fashion designer Jeff Garner, who invited him to perform at London Fashion Week. Despite his electronic direction, Johnny’s background is classical, having performed in a world touring choir at a young age.
