CHRIS WALLACE, “Let Me Love You”
It’s been great to see L.A.-based singer/songwriter Chris Wallace back and releasing new music after 8 years since the fantabulous “Remember When (Push Rewind)” (from the album also called Push Rewind, which I wrote about back in the day) took over #1 on my chart that summer and finished up as my #2 song of its year. “Time Bomb” and “Keep Me Crazy” also followed into my Top 10, but then Chris’ career went uncharacteristically quiet. In recent years he married and became a dad, but that hardly stops an enthusiastic return. “Let Me Love You” is his third new release (following “Stay Home” and “Insecurities”, whose honesty touched many fans), and is hardly like the aforementioned songs – a warm, romantic ballad that could be a wedding song for future couples, since it was in fact written about the moments leading up to his own marriage proposal (video below). It’s gentle and sung from the heart with a great vocal, and there’s not much more you can ask for with a song like this. Chris is now frequently performing and chatting online on Facebook or Instagram, with much more new music on the way, so I can’t wait to hear what’s coming next!
