The first single has already topped with over 100,000 streams and features all over the world.
Produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by the acclaimed artist/producer Blake Morgan, “Lucky To Be Here Tonight” opens with shimmering guitars that ripple like gentle waves, setting a serene tone that takes us near the undulating waters outside a town. The imagery is vivid, dimming the city lights and sounds as the listener is immersed in the serene ambiance. The guitar work maintains a soothing quality throughout, setting the tone for introspection.
The consistent and steady thump of the drums provides a grounding energy, anchoring us in the melody’s ebb and flow. Miles East’s vocals are a standout element, delivering the lyrics with a sweet and relaxing quality. His husky voice resonates with authenticity, humility, and simplicity, adding a layer of sincerity to the narrative.
Miles East, along with the collaborative efforts of Blake Morgan and Justin Goldner, has created a masterpiece with the second glimpse of the full-length record, that reverberates with depth and sincerity.
As the release date of ‘Between Lightning and Thunder’ approaches this June 7th,”Lucky To Be Here Tonight” stands tall awaiting the repeat button to calm our souls.
