Singer/songwriter Simon Lunche has packed a near-lifetime of musical experience into just 19 years. Along with taking up guitar at age five—and soon becoming the youngest endorsed artist in the history of Gibson Guitars during his time as the lead singer of The Blondies—he’s built up a vast musical knowledge that includes composing all the instrumental parts to his songs, from violin and cello to trumpet and sax.
Mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Dave Reitzas (Barbra Streisand, The Weeknd), “An Angel’s Love” bears a warm authenticity shaped by Lunche’s longtime love of Van Morrison and Leonard Cohen. The piano-driven track also finds Lunche bringing deeper nuance and a more reflective mood to his lyrics. “I think as you get older, you start to appreciate these little moments in time in a way you maybe never had before,” he says. “A lot of what I’m writing right now isabout dealing with change and trying to move forward, but still holding onto some reminiscence of the past.”
