Discovery: Steve Nicosia

Tragic Optimism is a new song from Steve Nicosia, a singer-songwriter and musician from Canada with a catchy sound to his music.

By Jane Howkins

The song opens with a lovely, warm sounding guitar melody, giving the track a very upbeat sound. It sounds quite jazzy at times, in part due to the rhythm and guitar melodies, although I also felt there was something of a ska vibe to the rhythm guitars in the background. It’s an instrumental piece but don’t let this put you off, as it really helps to display Steve’s musical talents to the world – you can find Tragic Optimism below.
