Discovery: Saul Ayotte

American singer-songwriter Saul Ayotte brings his own brand of rootsy rock and roll to these pages with his amazing new tune, Meant for You.

By Jane Howkins

Meant for You starts out with some lovely acoustic guitar melodies, fingerpicked to perfection. Saul’s vocals soon kick in – they’re extremely soulful, crooning through the track in a heartfelt way, making you feel everything he’s singing about here. The chorus really elevates things, turning Meant for You into an anthemic rock song, reminiscent of the folk rock that artists such as Bruce Springsteen have become so good at. However, Saul has developed his own unique sound here, pushing him well above his peers. Meant for You is also incredibly catchy, making you want to sing along to the chorus on the very first listen!
