New Feature JUST LISTEN: OpenEars Music was founded originally with one true goal in mind, as a place of discovery to help expose talented new artists. In reality, we are mostly a group of photographers who love to go see live music, and of course, shoot live music. We wish we had the time and resources to write about all the rad new music being sent our way everyday. Let’s be honest though, if you are one of those with really open ears, open to new artists, and open to something potentially unique like us, then our words only go so far. You listen for yourself and make your own decisions on the music you like. JUST LISTEN is a place for us to present our latest finds that we are digging. No words needed, just listen…..
JUST LISTEN: Paul Loren “I Know A Place”
Who: Paul Loren
Song: “I Know A Place”
Appears On: 2nd single off of Paul Loren’s upcoming EP Selections from Leisurely
Current Location: New York
Info: Huffington Post premiered Paul Loren’s new single a few weeks ago telling them – “’I Know A Place’ started out as a simple folk song,” explains Loren. “It’s really inspired by the times we live in, and the desire for change through understanding. The song has optimism at its heart. There’s certainly a connective thread to the 1960’s civil rights and peace movements and to songs like ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ and ‘A Change Is Gonna Come.’ Just like then, we are living in trying, often polarizing times. But I do believe that it’s our similarities and strengths which truly bind us—that’s the ‘place’ I’m talking about.”
Comments: The moment that Paul’s voice is introduced in “I Know A Place”, you can feel it. A soothing sound hits your ears and brings you back to a place and time that feels much simpler. The retro soul crooning of Paul Loren’s new single is immediately infectious and takes you back to the heyday of soul music, yet in 2017, this just feels so refreshing; a strong message from a voice that’s needed right now.
