The seventh track, “Princess”, instantly mimics the likes of Taylor Swift as Michelle lyrically speaks of the girl of everyone’s dreams who lives a life that everyone dies to be a part of. “Half is Full” is the eighth track that slows it down into an metaphorical lyrical ode into recognition of an individuals choice of perspective as Michelle commonly chooses the perspective of seeing the light in moments of dark.

The eleventh track, “One For All” featuring Natalie Sharp is an album highlight that lyrically ties in contemplation as an individual forgets the gift of choice within their lives and Michelle reminds them that they can overcome the temporary moments that feel like loss of hope. “Lottery” is the twelfth track that ties in putting a coin into a slot machine for a fun intro instrumental that leads into a Dance/Electronic track which showcases Michelle’s ability to dabble into any and every genre.

Kicking off with the first and title track, “Starry Sounds”, Todd Warner Moore eases into a slow strum as he creates the feeling of nostalgia within listeners as he reflects upon the simple moments in nature that have left memories in his mind that will stick with him until the end of his time. The second track, “Ebb and Flow”, ties in a Classical instrumental feel as Todd lyrically explores the highs and lows of life while ensuring to strive to find peace within going with the flow. “It’s All Happening Today” is the third track that kicks off with the feel of a Dave Matthews Band instrumental as Todd lyrically travels into a space of nothingness that reminds him to return to the place that provides him with the most clarity; the here and now.

Closing out with “Slate”, beautiful instrumentals that sound akin to Sting in his ‘Ten Summoner’s Tales’ days lead into a poetically rich lyrical journey into a clean slate between two that have distanced and reconnected in the present.

San Francisco Musician, Morsifire, Releases New Single – “Contact”

San Francisco Musician, Morsifire, has teamed up with Emily Afton to reveal and heal through a serene and moving track abounding with hypnotic instrumentals that are tied to potent lyricism throughout their recently dropped single, “Contact”. Ahead of Morsifire’s upcoming full-length release, ‘Metanoia’, which is set to be out on October 11th, 2019, “Contact” sets the tone for the inwardly restorative mission that Morsifire approaches his music with both in the studio and throughout his day-to-day life.

Diving into the painful moment of having to watch his sister’s ashes go into the ground rather than being able to watch her bloom in the physical, Morsifire’s vulnerability is atypical and sincerely appreciated by listeners that approach their lives with depth beyond the skin. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Mike Shinoda, Fort Minor and Mac Miller, then keep an eye on the promising and vulnerably rich ride ahead for Morsifire on Spotify.
