Charlie Jefferson – “Alone Time”


Transport yourself to a tranquil haven with “Alone Time,” a beautiful instrumental single from Edinburgh-based artist Charlie Jefferson. Delicate guitars, calming bass, and lush key-laden reflections entice with accessible charm. Orchestral tones subtly appear underneath, fully stretching their legs out in the gorgeous second half. Here, the trickling guitars converge with the hypnotic keys to find spine-chilling accompaniment in this brief yet effective woodwind-guided allure.

“Alone Time” is a ravishing success with meditative entrancement. Per Jefferson, the track “captures the mixed emotions of a turbulent time in my life, a simultaneous mixture of grief and positivity for the future.” Jefferson takes inspiration from landscapes surrounding him within his music, and with “Alone Time” I can’t help but picture beautiful flowing streams, cavernous mountain peaks, and the sense of overwhelming beauty as one takes in nature’s simultaneous stillness and vibrancy.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
