“Tough Love” is jazzy pop diversity at its best from @missMollyMoore

MOLLY MOORE, “Tough Love”

The lush sounds in “Tough Love” shouldn’t be overly surprising considering L.A. based singer/songwriter Molly Moore has dabbled in classics like “Come Fly With Me” on one of her EP’s and contributed to trumpeter Ryan Svendsen’s “Orange Tree Leaves” last year.  “Tough Love”, her first offering of 2018, does go heavy on alt.jazz flavour amid synth flourishes and a crisp vocal that’s more akin to a rock recording.  This is why Molly’s talents are so in-demand, through her other quite different work with beau Brandyn Burnette on his songs and their Cosmos & Creature project, as well as for others, including K-POP sensations EXO.  “Tough Love” is not about throwing everything into a recording but the kitchen sink.  It’s a consciously diverse offering that once again showcases Ryan Svendsen’s recognizable trumpet playing.  Rest assured that it’s a complex and fine introduction to what will come next in 2018 for Molly Moore – as always I am completely engaged 🙂 Add “Tough Love” to your Tasty and Diverse pop playlist using the Spotify link above.

More from the New Classic Vocal Era: “Say You Love Me” by @JessieWare

JESSIE WARE, “Say You Love Me”

29 year old British singer Jessie Ware had many fine moments on her debut album Devotion two years back.  But the songs that she’s been releasing thus far from her sophomore album Tough Love show that these songs are joining a new classic vocal era that was raised to new heights by Adele four years ago.  Sam Smith is the male comparator, of course, and he and Adele and Jessie Ware can join forces and send us all into complete bliss.  “Say You Love Me” is lilting and dreamy pop that is awoken with a choral climax that helps make the song memorable.  The video showcase is simple and understated and all Jessie.  Brilliant and chart bound internationally!  North America gets Tough Love on October 21, eight days after the UK and other countries.  I’m looking forward to seeing her show on October 26 in Toronto 🙂
