(Let Your Light) Shine by TJ Doyle: Review
TJ Doyle channels his inner Bob Dylan with a touch of indie and folk in the track (Let Your Light) Shine. The tune is a reflective one filled with jangly guitars and an energetic drumming presence.
There is a very serene and calming quality to TJ Doyle’s voice. It has a delightfully classic folk feel to it that bodes well with the well-strung chords from the guitar. (Let Your Light) Shine is a song that has a meaningful and thought-provoking sentiment behind it. Throughout each verse and its crescendo, I found elation but at the same time a deep sadness to it. As the track progressed a cinematic flair emerged with some minimal orchestral bits that gave the air around the track a gripping vibe to it. In some layers, there is a type of instrument that reverberates, and its uniqueness was quite intriguing. It sounded like someone was fiddling with a bunch of keys, not keyboards, actual keys. It was a nice addition to the track and further added to its indie nature.
I couldn’t help but admire the songwriting of the track, so here’s an outlook –
“Sometimes we get caught in our heads
Things get going and we forget
None of this can happen if we choose to live from our hearts
You won’t know what this means unless you start”
The lyrics are quite relatable, and because of this, the song’s spirit is much more enjoyable to hear.
