Interview: Lorne talks about the artistic and narrational concept of debut single 'Bread Alone'




Sometimes music just finds an echo on all levels necessary for the listener to relentlessly fall for it, strikes a chord in such an engagingly effortless manner that you can't help but be completely captivated by its charmingly genuine, emotionally gripping essence - and what a marvellous experience that is! 

In its early stage already, 'Bread Alone' had this hauntingly yearning, sincerely stirring sentiment about it, hard to shake, one you all too willingly indulge in as it radiates soothing warmth and wistful gravity so beautifully intertwined that you feel the pensive longing, the heartfelt desire for something meaningful to aspire, immediately. (this is at least how Lorne's poignant debut single has been perceived here)

carpe carmina cupid: Lewis Bootle steals hearts aplenty with this charming exclusive of 'The Seed'



'Can't force the seed, just let it grow' - and there is no force nor time needed to make you fall for Lewis Bootle's invitingly intimate performance of this sonic stunner. With mellow melodies, soulful vocal flow and stirringly disarming storytelling 'The Seed' pierces to the heart, and carpe carmina is quite certain that the enthusiastic singer/songwriter knows about his music's very own charm and charisma - sprouting due to heartfelt and smart lyricism, due to its brisk, softly endearing timbre - just as much as we do (well, 'The Seed' has been song of the month on here in august 2016 for good reason(s) and it is surely melting hearts all over again now, especially on a romance-fraught day like feb. 14).
