Review

 

Breathe Out performed and co-written by Roseanna Jones (of Worry Dolls fame), is a beautiful song.

The perfect celebration for LGBGTQ+ people who have suffered the anxiety and freedom of coming out and encouragement for those who have yet to do so.

With co-writers including Rebekah Powell (who also co-wrote two singles and 10 songs on the #1 Ward Thomas album Cartwheels) and Worry Dolls colleague Zoe Nicol (who studied song-writing at LIPA in Liverpool), the music and lyrics are undoubtedly well crafted.

Six small words say so much  “Out like the sun after the rain”.

This marks Roseanna’s solo debut and Breathe Out was written to celebrate Coming Out Day on October 11th.  It is clearly close to her heart as it marked her own public coming out.

The choice of piano to lead the track works perfectly with the addition of a violin that adds sensitivity. The lyrics are heartfelt and relate to the freedom of feeling comfortable with your sexuality and the sense of relief at being true to yourself and not living within confines.

I found the video really moving and loved the metaphor of living life in colour. 

100% of the profits will be donated to The Kaleidoscope Trust, a UK-based charity working to uphold the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in countries around the world where they are discriminated against or marginalised due to their sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.

Once again, British females are leading the way with their undeniable strength in delivering well written songs. This is a great debut track and Roseanna’s tone and her impressive range ensure that she can also build a solo career alongside the success of TBCMF 2019 favourites Worry Dolls.  

Congratulations Roseanna

The Shires feat Lauren Alaina | Lightning Strikes

Review From its acapella start, ‘Lightening Strikes’ builds to a catchy rhythm that has more rises and falls than a quickstep. The clever chorus is punctuated with effective tacets, giving it that traditional country sound that will stay with you long after the song...

Sean C Kennedy | Wild Forever

Review   Wild Forever by Scottish born Sean Kennedy is a song that oozes freedom, images of wide open spaces with a worry free existence and it wouldn’t be out of place as the track of choice for a romantic Viennese waltz on Strictly.  Now living permanently in...
