Almost Autumn- Artist Review


                

Almost Autumn is an appropriate name for this time of year. As the sun burns brightly, Autumn is waiting in the wings for its moment. 

Joelle Edwards AKA Almost Autumn is a music producer/singer/songwriter from Liverpool and her infectious pop is as cheery and delicate as the ray of sunlight that kisses the sky on these summer days. I don't usually review pop music, but Edwards is different. She has that knack to write feelgood and punchy songs that is more suitable for the summer, rather than the autumn.

Edwards writes a social account of her life and her lyrics touch on love, lust and other social occurrences you'd expect in a student’s life.
She has yet to release an album, so I shall be picking a selection of songs from her back catalogue, Available through Bandcamp.

Her music is uplifting and pleasant with hints of folk and electronic beats. She has  potential to tap into the chart music territory that is often occupied by better-known stars.

Snow is a piano-driven ballad entrenched with dazzling keys and heartfelt lyrics. Edwards provides herself with a platform to sing an intimate style as if alone in the room with that special someone. I feel she is suited singing with an instrument because it allows her vocals to flourish, and plays to her songwriting strengths.


Only You is an electronic pop track replete with overlapping synth beats that brings a certain charm to the ears. Edwards knows her audience well. She applies a skilful use of rhyming couplets and mellow vocals that sounds gentle and sweet. The message of true love blends with the electronic loops and overall feelgood factor that could be a breakthrough hit within the commercial market.

Unforgettable is a nice folk track that is another love song with that quaint touch. The vocals are warm and easy to listen to with the strong strums of an acoustic guitar that sets it apart from the other tracks more poppier edge.

Heartless is an indie pop song with a strong percussive rythm structure that flows with Edward's contagious demeanour that shines throughout all her songs. I personally feel the track is about falling for someone who may be trouble, but the effective chorus; and high tempo could definitely appeal to a wider audience.

Overall, Almost Autumn produces several tracks that are easy to listen to and relatable to younger fans. Her music is not generic, but warm and cheerful. I believe she has potential to go far.
