5 Songs I Love w/ Concrete Green
Following the release of his latest single 'One Last Try' we caught up with London-based singer-songwriter Concrete Green to discover what goes into his eclectic sound. If you like Concrete Green's picks be sure to check out 'One Last Try' at the end of the article.
1. Joy Inside My Tears - Stevie Wonder
"It’s a blend of the lyrics, melody and heavy slow arrangement that makes this song so powerful top that with Stevie Wonders’ soulful and virtuous vocals and you’re in for a true emotional journey."
2. Round Midnight’ - Wes Montgomery
"15 years ago I’ve stumbled upon this amazing version of Round Midnight by Thelonious Monk. I couldn’t stop listening to it. I woke up and went to sleep with it. It’s no wonder that I auditioned with this song for my Bachelor Degree."
3. Pillow Of Your Bones - Chris Cornell
"It’s really hard to choose a favourite from Chris Cornell’s album Euphoria Morning. To me it feels like I have at least seven that are my favourite. This song and album are a big representation of my upbringing as a musician and my own personal musical journey."
4. Sail To The Moon - Radiohead
"Again it’s impossible to summarise my love for Radiohead into 1 song, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the song I’ve listened to the most. Maybe ”Pyramid Song” or “Everything In Its Right Place” were played as much."
5. Kumi Venetse Hasadeh - Avishai Cohen
"Everything in this song is beautiful in my opinion, proper soulful and beautiful. Also from a musician point of view it’s very complex and very calculated. An emotional soft song in 11/8 is not something you hear everyday.
