Whether performing solo or collaborating with other artists, Tony Momrelle never fails to disappoint. And it’s not just because the brother can sing. He has a unique way of speaking to our souls with every single and/or project. Recently, he provided music therapy with his infectious groove “Escape” and a stirring remake of Donny Hathaway‘s “Someday We’ll All Be Free.” The tracks were lifted from his newly released EP, Lockdown Acoustic Sessions.
Recorded remotely during the pandemic from locations across Europe, this new EP serves up a nice variety of tunes that will please any music lover. In addition to the previously-released singles, the project features two additional new songs. “Look At Us Now” is an inspirational ballad filled with hope, while “You Got All the Lovin'” slaps with bluesy funk. Lockdown Acoustic Sessions also delights us with two acoustic revisits of Momrelle classics “A Million Ways” and “Spotlight.”
Tony introduces each track with a little backstory that helps make the project feel intimate. In talking of the album, he explains that Lockdown Acoustic Sessions is “an encouragement to everyone to look forward to brighter times and remember that every dark night comes to an end eventually. The last twelve months have tested us all, but music is something that unites everyone, and I’m glad to be able to give people a reason to smile.”
