Everyone has experienced those times when it seems as if the world is upon their shoulders and everything is going wrong. The desire to give up can be overwhelming but, there are times when we are at our lowest points and the only thing that can lift us up out of our darkest hour is a song. One artist has heard the voices of those who face struggle and has decided to share his response of encouragement and enlightenment.
Songwriter and recording artist John Blake joined forces with Elisa Polanco to deliver another earth moving track called “Changes”, a song that is emotionally stirring and inspiring by all accounts. The latest from a series of singles dropped this year, John selflessly opens his heart to the world once again evoking power through music.
Elisa sings on the hook “Everything changes, let go and give it a try, don’t let your life pass you by”, a memorable and relevant statement especially in the face of the most difficult struggles faced by many on a daily basis. John Blake who is recognized for reaching out to his fans through his music in a very direct and personal manner demonstrates his ability to address the issues that affect humanity at its core.
The daunting reality is that mainstream recording artists often avoid engaging with weighty issues that affect society in their music thus leading to a lack of connectivity with those most in need of strong, positive influences. Outside the world of materialistic glorification, glitz and glamour exist regular people who face everyday challenges looking for artists that they can relate to. John Blake, who is embarking on his own road to fame through raw authenticity is the artist of our generation that will motivate, inspire, and address the good, the bad, and the ugly much like Tupac and Biggie did in their time.
“Changes” is a powerful song that is capable touching of a multitude of individuals from various walks of life. The song is an easy listen with a flavor reminiscent of the late 90s and early 2000s before commercial hip-hop ventured slightly away from socially conscious productions. Blake delivers flawless bars and pertinent lyrical content while Elisa Polanco connects the verses with a contemporary R&B hook. From a motivating stance, the song is possibly one of the most inspirational collaborations of the year. Although the song is moving, the production yields a formidable secular presentation thus enabling it to reach a broad spectrum of listeners.
It is evident that John Blake is on a mission and is making moves with his music which never fails to deliver. “Changes” is a sleek production with exceptional vocal and sound quality. Blake’s songwriting is virtually unrivaled when considering the current plight of the independent artist and the lack of original content distributed to the masses. The intent and purpose behind Blake’s music is not only placing him among the most sought after artists of today but it is changing lives one by one.
