“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife”. I’ve never liked Jane Austen (neither Charlotte Bronte did because, like me, she’s a passion over reason writer), even if my second grade English teacher was fond of her and tried to convince us about her greatness.
So, after this little digression, let’s start again: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in possession of a good musical taste, must be in want to write about it on her blog”. I like a lot of artists and when I say a lot I mean a lot for real and when I say I like, I mean that I can talk or write about their music for hours without getting tired. Many of them (The Cure, Toto, The Script, Ed Sheeran, 5SOS and probably Wheatus) don’t need to be introduced, this is a shout out for the skilled beatboxer Intensi-T, the angelic voice of a songwriter called Gabrielle Sterbenz, the energetic Rivers Monroe, the old but gold Seven band and my favourite duo, that is Josh and Ollie.
First of all forget about that Josh Devine who plays the drums for One Direction and focus on Josh and his ability to play some different instruments, to write lyrics that come directly from the heart and who can write a big range of different style songs. Are you there? Ok. Now add Ollie, another skilled musicians who owns his own label (Vertue music), who collaborated with a lot of different artists, who is able to write very relatable lyrics and excellent music. The aim of their music is not only entertain people, but to lift up their souls, encouraging them and giving them hope. The titles of the songs reminds of a battle against our fears and insecurities that have to be won: Through the fire, Fight for you, Don’t let it go, Jailhouse.
On the other hand they invite us to enjoy the little things and cherish our memories (Making memories, Here to stay, Never fade) and to live our lives at their fullest.

And since music speaks when words fail…
