Single: James Wyatt Crosby – Something Missing

To me, “Something Missing” has always felt like the little brother of an earlier song of mine called “Deep in Yr Mind“. I’ve always tried to avoid repeating myself, but I feel like I subconsciously made “Something Missing” in a similar vein to that song, which I only started to realize towards the end of the recording process. This song has a slow pulse, and it alludes to an ineffable ache that is universally felt. But although it does suggests a deep indefinable sadness on one hand, on the other, it also suggests that solace can be found through sharing our sorrows. The silver lining is that there is always potential to rekindle what has been lost through a kind of mutual commiseration.


As soon as I receive a submission from an artist outside of the United States, I feel doubly pleased. This is because my blog tends to attract mostly US-based musicians, so it’s always exciting to discover new talent from other parts of the world. As someone from the heart of Europe, it’s an incredibly special feeling to know that people care about my taste in music.

Recently, I stumbled upon the latest single from an indie pop-rock artist based in Tiny, Ontario (what a cool name for a town). The song is a slow and mesmerizing journey that takes you on a dreamy ride with just the voice and the music. It’s a beautiful indie pop song that has completely captured my attention. I’ve been listening to it on repeat, completely lost in its vibe.

The video that accompanies the song is a perfect match for its dreamy mood, and I’ve enjoyed watching it as much as I’ve enjoyed listening to the song. All in all, it’s a fantastic piece of work that I’m thrilled to have discovered. I bet you will love it as much as I do.
