First Listen: Patrick McCallion – Voices
One instrument I absolutely have a soft spot for is the acoustic guitar. Patrick McCallion has quenched my thirst and then some with a masterful symphony of strings that he calls “Voices”. This track is a songwriter’s “eureka” moment with its pure composition, lyrical yearning and crystal clear melodies, so much so that it can only be called a “future classic”. Bravo!
Sitting over the way from a table of Tories with some very questionable opinions on gay rights. Getting me good and angry for this recording
About Patrick McCallion
As the main singer / songwriter in Small Words, Patrick McCallion already has a growing reputation with fans of gritty social conscience infused indie-pop. Previous releases such as the energetic ‘Light Entertainment’ and the wonderfully catchy ‘Neat Little Package’ marked out Patrick as a songwriter and performer to keep an eye on.
“Voices” is the first of a series of solo singles set for 2016. Renowned Producer David M Allen (The Cure) was behind the desk for this first offering of the year. “Voices” is a gentler, more melodic, dare we say sentimental commentary on love. As usual with Patrick the lyrics are intelligent and well thought out and the music has a raw production with the keys and guitars left to speak for themselves.
With the dates for the “The Unplugged UK Tour” to be released soon and more singles to come, 2016 is going to be quite a year for Patrick McCallion.
