And just like that… with a wave of his right hand, he’s left us behind. Let’s certainly hope that’s not the case, however, because up and coming Melbourne performer Jack Byrnes has one of those soaring emotive voices that simply demands attention. So bursting with soul, so rich, so effortless and so timeless, his vocal at once recalls the smoothness of our own Daniel Merriweather, at another of the extraordinary Renee Geyer. Guided by the cutting-edge pop production of M-Phazes (the gent behind Kimbra and Bliss N Eso), his just-released solo effort ‘You’ve Been Left Behind’ fuses soul with future-focussed production to create a truly exhilarating local pop offering.
We’re really, really excited by this. We’re hoping perhaps that little hand gesture on the cover may well be a sign for you to stop and take in this most impressive track.
