Jazz Soul Award Winning Indie Singer-Songwriter, Author, Producer and multi-award nominee, Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest, has released if single “Emptiness (Remix)”. His previous work, “Follow Your Dreams”, was No1 for 30+ weeks on the Jazz Charts (Reverbnation), Top14 for 3 years straight from 2009. In total it stayed, over 200 weeks on the Top 20. Everest is the first UK and Anglo African artist to achieve that success.
Anthony Everest who has had rave reviews from magazine and radio stations alike, is getting ready to launch his album Road To Freedom. He is one of those rare vocalists who actually seem to be creating a song as he sings it. “Emptiness (Remix)” entwines the lofty ideal of love with the uncommon poetry of longing, across a funky urban beat. The melody slowly builds until the listener is soaring with the song in the choruses.
As talented as he is, Anthony Everest should not only be appreciated for his unique vocal art, but his songwriting flair as well. “Follow Your Dreams” being a prime example. All these musical qualities will surely not go unnoticed by music fans, which will include a vast number of his fellow musicians too, no doubt.
Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest has proved himself to be one of the most unique and foremost voices currently in the music industry and a consummate singer-songwriter with his independent releases thus-far.
His music and voice is pure artistry and he will surely become one of the greatest assets Jazz, R&B, Soul and Pop music will hear over the next few years, providing his management and crew keep steering him in the right direction: which to be honest, is quite simply up, towards the top, where the winds blow stronger and the leaves rustle louder!
One of the most amazing facets of Everest’s performing and singing, is his ability to make the same song a completely different musical experience no matter how many times he has performed it. I heard “Follow Your Dreams” on different occasions and was constantly enchanted by the continued freshness of Everest’s execution.
For those who have never heard Àrèmúorin Anthony Everest, I think you will be amazed at what he can do with a simple song using the considerable power, range and virtuosity of his voice, together with the ingenious embellishments and phrasing that never overpowers the listener but captivates the ear.
However with all due respect, I think that both “Follow Your Dreams” and “Emptiness (Remix)” are great songs with a unique touch, but they are only the iceberg of the creativity and technical quality this UK artist of Nigerian descent can and will deliver in the near future.
Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest is super groovy. Absolutely fabulous…and quietly but humbly reaching out to stardom…which he quite rightly deserves!
