 “Sad Season”

gavin-haley-SIRInfluenced from the sounds and sights of Los Angeles California singer/songwriter Gavin Haley offer his profoundly original pop musings. Haley brings a personal touch to his lyrics that paints a narrative that is universal to all. His latest track “Sad Season” recently released on October 3, 2018.  He again hits the mark with his storytelling, crafting a narrative and setting a feel-good music vibe.

“Sad Season” finds Haley honing his sound of pop-punctuated, electronic inspired and R&B sounds with his subtle vocals. Haley recently signed with Red Bull Records and this track fits the light fun stylings that the energy drink is known for.  With an equally balanced support of music behind him without crowding out his voice, the track is a winning listen.  Allowing listener to hear his voice clearly, including all nuances of his voice. Haley’s singing and lyrics are not about being complex or advanced, his musical prowess is about keeping things relatable, something we need much more of in this heavy world.

Music is meant to transport and uplift, heal and at times inform or protest. Haley’s message is about healing, moving on and regrouping. Tied together with his haunting vocals and emotive angst, “Sad Season,” is for anyone who needs that reassurance and is taking back their personal power.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
