Singer-Songwriter & Acoustic Guitarist Saul Behan-Dunne Emerges with New Single “You Keep Me Warm”

Saul Behan-DunnThere are a few styles of music that encapsulate the spirit of love and the joie de vivire that humans often experience through intersecting paths. Acoustic music however, is one of the most natural forms by which singers and songwriters fuse the human experience with sound in a completely authentic and unrefined manner. Acoustic artists have a way of expressing certain truth through sound, free from inhibitions, and void of technical saturation. Because of this, listeners are able to take more away from the listening experience, appreciating the artistry, and relating lyrical substance.

The production yields a genuine love song that will echo with fans who enjoy ingenuous lyrics and uncut music. In a frank tone, he expresses raw emotion against rolling waves of guitar chords and energetic dashes of trumpet play. The tone of song bears a resemblance to the Plain White T’s song “Hey There Delilah” beckoning fans to sing along.

Saul’s vocals are burly but also charming as they are delivered with a youthful tone and carefree approach. Although his vocal performance has the vibrancy of an emerging artist, it is more than evident by the overall musicality of the song, that he has indeed been there and done that and his journey has taken him far beyond the status quo. As a songwriter, his use of metaphorical phrases effectively conveys the theme of the song to fans in a lighthearted and jovial manner. “You Keep Me Warm” is an amiable and fun-loving track that will have star-crossed lovers of all ages walking hand in hand.

Saul Behan-Dunne, known for his work with The Sigh Company has now embarked on his journey as a solo artist. Delivering a pure uncooked acoustic sound, his music is a fearless expression of emotion and life’s various shades. His sounds are manifold consisting of pop, rock, folk, and acoustic styles.

Glender displays his diversity as an artist on tracks such as “Zi Zhu Xiao” where he transports listeners to the continent of Asia where the sounds offer a nostalgic ambiance, inspiring not only the audio but visual use of imagination to appreciate the cultural elements of the music. Glender works proficiently to blend multiple elements and effects into a remarkably powerful listening experience.
