We’ve been secretly enjoying ‘Sunburn’, the new single from Nashville-based singer Ryan Schmidt, in the days and weeks leading up to its release just yesterday (Australian time). Now, however, it’s been set free for everyone to enjoy.
Ryan’s apparently a real estate auctioneer in his day job and cheekily describes himself as a “crazy cat lady by day” and “songwriter by night” and the new single as “Ke$ha meets James Taylor”.
‘Sunburn’ pays tribute to his youth, living out his summer loves and dreams on the US East Coast.
Beyond its electro-pop soundtrack, however, what impressed us most about ‘Sunburn’ is Ryan’s beautiful, smoky vocal. The song’s been made available globally via the iTunes store.
Give it a lil’ listen below.
