carmina charm #4

Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony? 

- Leonardo DaVinci

It's harmony that your soul and mind embraces again when listening to music. As sound surrounds you, only some melodies firmly resonate with you, get an immediate emotional response - whilst their approach is a smooth and soft one, whilst they slowly, carefully but steadily cling to you, these melodies eventually grab you with an intensity and force that overwhelms, that fully absorbs and stirs. It's these very melodies that are in chime with your mind and soul, it's music that leaves an imprint on your being and mesmerizes ... music that charms

'I do music for the passion that it brings' - an auspicious remark that sees fruition whilst listening to Henry Maybury's debut EP 'Lost Days': quaint and ensouled nonetheless blithely flaring chords are struck, softly fainting polyphonic features accentuate a wistful, expressive and sensitive vocal lead which ushers through a symphonious and vibrantly pulsatingsoothing music scenery of musefulreflective and sincere lyricism. The Shrewsbury based singer/songwriter courageously opens up to his audience as he lets his soulful music do the speaking for him - honesty and heart in songwriting is revealed as Maybury's listeners embark on a scenic and emotional musical journey, as his listeners indulge in haunting, empathic and heart-rending narrations of a 21 year old musician who strives to make his audience find truth, comfort and affinity in his compositions ....
