It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you the brand new single from London based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ben McKelvey. The track is called Morning I’m Gone and i have no hesitation in telling you straight from the off that I’m a big fan.
McKevely has played hundreds of shows as a solo artist since 2011 with some of those shows forming part of a US tour in 2014. His music has been likened to that of Paul Weller and I think that you can hear a hint of that in this, his latest single.
The thing that I love about this track and suspect that in time that I will love about McKelvey the artist is that its philosophy is very simple. It’s all about the quality of the song. There are no gimmicks, just a strong vocal, good melody, a chorus you can sing along to and well written lyrics. “I know that I fit the lock but I’m not your key” is a personal favourite.
I’ve got nothing negative to say about this track at all. The more you play it, the better it gets and that chorus that I mentioned will get stuck in your head. There really is nothing not to like!
