Music is not just about melody, it should also about how a singer or an artist delivers the song as well as the beauty of the story being delivered. In mainstream music scene, we rarely see or hear some artists who are great storytellers apart from being good artists. It wasn’t just about the vocal gymnastics, it should also about a song going out from the heart and passes through the mouth, and eventually reach the heart of the listeners.
Here are some of the artists that had so much depth and tells suxh stories with the way they deliver their songs:
Some people say, “she wrote a new song again about her ex”, that’s how people had perceived her. But the way she had written and deliver her songs, you can hear stories. Most of these songs were hidden gems that weren’t released. It was also good to check her old country songs if you want to hear stories from a young lady with a young sweet voice.
I can’t say I am a fan of Eminem because I am really not one. His songs has lots of profanity, yes! But it can’t hardly be said that he lacks depth. He had lots of songs about his life. He love his daughter so much, it’s in his songs. He got hurt by his mom and wife, it’s in his songs. He even tells the story of his fans. He had some serious songs too and he delivered such story well.
I know he is one of the best songwriters nowadays apart from being a good, if not the best, singer. In fact, I love his voice and I am a professed fan. The reason why I became a fan isn’t only about his voice, talent or the lovely melodies of his songs. I can feel the story in his songs as well as how he delivers it perfectly.
Pink is not just about a muscular female singer, showing idiosyncrasies in her videos and singing with her strong vocals. She is also about depth, sharing her experiences and her views. I love how she delivered “Just Give Me a Reason” and how she told the story in “Who Knew”.
Adele may not be a total performer but what makes her standout among these heaps of great performers? It’s the way she interprets and deliver a story with the way she is singing. She may just be standing or sitting in front of you performing, but it’s not just performing. She is pouring her heart and telling the story. It reaches your heart if you will listen to not just the melody, rather the message as well, along with the majestic voice of hers.
