Joey Paul - Wildheart
Emerging Australian music artist Joey Paul has just released Wild Heart, a stirring and uplifting track that’s sure to propel him into the next level of his burgeoning career.
The indie singer-songwriter has already released a few singles, but it sounds like Wild Heart is the one that’s going to break for him. The new release is a folk-pop track that features an organic sound, subtle hooks, an enticing lyric, and superb performances.
As Joey has said about the lyric, ‘When I was writing the song, I wanted to give people the feeling of when you are on a first date, and you don’t know what the future will bring. Full of uncertainty with so many possibilities.’ That feeling is palpable on Wild Heart, with the level of intimacy heightened by evocative vocal performances.
Wild Heart also features the vocals of Clare Munnings, whose finely wrought cadences provide the perfect accompaniment to Joey’s authentically tender approach. Reminiscent of such artists as Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Passenger and Ed Sheeran, Wild Heart features a stripped back sound, one that allows for the melody to float above the light groove and let Joey’s (and Clare’s) voice shine through.
‘‘‘Intimate and personal, the track also has a whimsical quality, idealistic yet full of hope and positivity. The track is a slow and steady build, with its hooks taking you along for an alluring and life-affirming ride. '
