Singer/Songwriter Charlsey Etheridge Releases New Album – IndiePulse Music Journal


Since first coming onto the scene only a few years in the past with the discharge of some very credible singer/songwriter content material, Charlsey Etheridge has been elevating eyebrows amongst critics and followers the identical – little question due to the unimaginable voice she has. Her singing has been a focus of many writers’ commentaries prior to now couple of years, however there hasn’t been almost as a lot mentioned concerning the flexibility of her inventive course – till now.

Her new album Scars of Mine places her versatile songwriting talents at middle stage and arguably provides us much more motive to be enthusiastic about this rising star.    Etheridge’s fearless execution is a tough component of her skilled skillset for the competitors to maintain up with, and also you needn’t look a lot additional than “Doin’ Improper Really feel Proper,” “Time,” “So Lengthy,” and “Midnight Prepare” to know what I imply right here. She’s so spot-on with the microphone that it’s laborious to consider that is solely her second studio album; the effectivity of her assault alone places her in some very elite firm.

From what I can inform, she’s solely getting higher with expertise, and these tracks exemplify how little mileage she must go even more durable after the mainstream market.    The timing of the verses within the title lower, “Did You?,” and “Again to You” signifies the potential for a killer stay present right here, however larger than that is the tonal presence Etheridge’s voice has even when it’s standing beside bigger than life instrumentation.

She requires neither a lift from the grasp combine nor a inflexible association to construction her hooks on this document, and whereas there is likely to be different measurements of ability within the nation style, this one has undeniably turn out to be a stable go-to within the post-western period of progressive songwriting.  

Chemistry isn’t simply vital between gamers; it’s important to the cultivation of a superb concord between singer and instrument, and it’s plentiful within the tracklist of Scars of Mine. The heavier melody is a specific favourite of Etheridge’s, giving start to some scathing commentarial moments in “Rhythm of Love” that despatched chills down my again the primary time I heard them. She could possibly be as superb with nothing greater than a backing band and a smoke-filled nightclub’s viewers as she would an entire orchestra, and that simply can’t be mentioned about any of the opposite gamers in her scene proper now. 

Smashing nation music isn’t laborious to seek out in 2023, however intellectually stimulating songcraft is as uncommon a characteristic in Nashville because it’s ever been, which makes somebody like Charlsey Etheridge an actual godsend to music addicts like me. Summer season at all times has a extra distinctive soundtrack than the opposite three seasons do, and Scars of Mine is primed with melodies and mightily poetic verses comprising the temper of the fleeting sunshine higher than I anticipated them to, given the swaggering really feel of Etheridge’s debut. I’m loopy about this LP, and I believe different various nation followers are going to seek out it value celebrating as nicely.
