C.SHIROCK, “Lost To The Night”
“Lost To The Night” is a compelling song that asks the question: What would you say to a loved one in your immediate family who you haven’t spoken to in many years? The answer lies in the chorus “brother, come home”. Chuck Shirock is a singer/songwriter who divides his time between Nashville and Los Angeles, but “Lost To The Night” is hardly what I would call conventional of either music city. Influences here come from U2 – C.SHIROCK sounds a lot like Bono at times – Coldplay, Peter Gabriel, and too many others to think of, particularly from the 80’s. The big production in contrast to the emotion of the song is consistent with U2 or Peter Gabriel records. C.SHIROCK’s vocal will definitely move you, and a good companion song to it is the recent and deeply personal single by Cobi called “Island In My Mind” which I wrote about a few weeks back. C.SHIROCK definitely holds a lot of promise and with songs like “Lost To The Night” clearly has a lot to offer.
