Casey Powell – “Honey.” (feat. Zlynn Harris)


A catchy pop track with samba influence, “Honey.” is a recent release from Louisville-based artist Casey Powell. Powell is joined by vocalist Zlynn Harris, who adds a fantastic dimension to the track; the duet plays beautifully, with the interactions and melodic contrasts working seamlessly. The string-laden guitar twangs around 01:35 also entrance. The subdued “right by your side,” bridge to conclude the effort is also notably effective. “Honey.” is an impressive effort all around, especially considering Powell’s contributions. He wrote, arranged, recorded, mixed, and mastered the track — in addition to playing bass, guitar, drums, keyboard, and vocals.

More information on the track and Powell’s upcoming album below:

Casey also orchestrated a small ensemble of string players to help liven up the track. The ensemble consisted of Violinist’s Trenton Smith and Kojin Tashiro and the world renown cellist Ben Sollee. “Honey.” is centered around being mutually in love and yearning for the company of your loved one. The song is also the second single released off of Casey Powell’s unreleased debut album entitled “Auxygen I : The Gold Opus” set to be released Spring 2020.

“Honey.” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2019’ Spotify playlist.
