Sometimes, through a singer’s voice, you can feel much more than what the lyrics say and understand a lot about his music and his approach to life and art. While most artists release photocopied music, tracks with the same loops and beats, and try to chase the dream by focusing more on climbing the digital platforms’ algorithms, there are artists like Barnabas Shane who genuinely believe in what they do, and the result is outstanding! Today, at Planet Singer, we have the great pleasure of listening to some of his tracks. These meaningful songs go straight to the listeners’ hearts, catapulting them into Barnabas’ exciting soundscapes!
