Luke De-Sciscio is a British artist who's "Moon" threw all my standards straight out of the window and didn't only convince me to write about a 'vocally driven' tune, but to listen to it some 20 times on repeat too.
If you're any kind of familiar with our blog, you will know that our very strong preference is for instrumental music and it is extremely rare (in fact I can't remember the last time I did it) when we accept a piece of music with sung lyrics in it, much less write about it.
"Moon" is a masterfully written and performed composition written for guitar and vocals. I am not even going to attempt to throw this into any kind of genre, as it would be too arrogant given the individuality of the endeavor, but I will compare this to the best material from Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and Otis Redding. It is, quite frankly, intersecting at those three, all the while shining blindingly with its own core.
If I don't see this break through and put the artist on big stages some time soon, I'm about done with music business altogether. There I said it.
