Song of the Day: Linger – Fred Lessore

London-based songwriter and musician FRED LESSORE – of Anglo – French and Malagasy descent – has released his stunning record ‘Linger’.

‘Linger’ is written from the perspective of a woman facing doubt. Produced by Pete Boxsta Martin (James Arthur, Jessie J), the stirring ballad pulls on the shadows of a past love, confronting the burning question many of us have to ask ourselves: Am I ready to try again?

Speaking on the release Fred says “It took me less than 20 minutes to write and record the demo for ‘Linger’. It was easy to pull inspiration from the strong women in my family; I’ve seen each of them carry their battle scars with grace, dignity and acceptance. At the crossroads of love and loss, ‘Linger’ is a drop in the ocean of what it might take to build a strong woman, and I only hope that I’ve done them justice.”

Whilst recording new music, Fred has been emerging through London’s live circuit, including bookings at Proud Camden & Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.

NOA Gets ‘Caught Up’ In Her Brand New Single

When singer/songwriter NOA falls for someone, she often gets very Caught Up in her head. Her brand new single is a personal anthem/reminder to stay in the moment and to focus on how amazingly beautiful, vulnerable and scary falling in love can be.

Although it’s NOA‘s personal journey, this song also serves as a reminder that we all should live in the moment and fully embrace all beautiful and new experiences.
