CHRIS BLUE, “Moon”
Although he hasn’t been away from releasing music since he won “The Voice” with coach Alicia Keys in 2017, his latest single “Moon” is a restart in a sense. “Moon” returns Knoxville, Tennessee-based Chris Blue to the soul-pop that enticed “The Voice” audience to vote him as the winner of season 12, after performing such diverse songs as Motown classic “The Tracks Of My Tears”, Prince’s “Diamonds and Pearls”, Miguel’s “Adorn”, Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic”, R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, and more. He continued to show his versatility after the show with the top notch, ages-old-soulful but risky “Blue Blood Blues”, as well as a holiday EP. He’s in excellent form in “Moon”, which is a solid original composition that moves along briskly with a memorable lead up to its infectious chorus. It may have taken four years, but with songs like “Moon”, it looks like 2021 will be a very good year indeed for Chris Blue.
