Faith in me

lead single: #1 UK itunes Top 100 folk/rock singles

"Setting up for success, ‘Faith In Me’ has got everything that you will need to make your mood a little better. The melodious composition is perfectly paired up with the transcending vocals creating a splendid ambiance that is too hard to ignore. The song has several outstanding elements that make it so musically enriched. Starting with the mesmerizing yet emotional vocals that are complemented in an ideal way by the well-written and expressive lyrics. Similarly, the composition has used a fine blend of guitar tunes and riffs along with dynamic drum sounds that enhance the vibe of the track even more, giving it a cool tone of folk rock/Americana music."
