For Me, For Her, For You by John Adams

John Adams is at it again with his latest single. For Me, For Her, For You is the fourth release from his upcoming album of original, acoustic, folk-pop songs. If you recognise his name, it’s probably because you watch X-factor UK (or are a regular reader of my blog). Taking a great leap of faith, Adams quit his job as a maths teacher to pursue his career in music which has been an ongoing success. He has supported Take That, Lemar and Katherine Jenkins as well as nurturing a fan base of 100,000 monthly listeners.

This single contained sonically pleasing vocal harmonies and a beautiful melody in Adams’ falsetto. As always, Adams constructed his melodic phrases expertly over a texturally rich background. However, I felt that the music needed more percussion. Although some rhythm was evident in the guitar, the chorus where the melody is especially syncopated and staccato needed to have a drum kit to build up the song. Regardless, the combination of guitar, strings and synth made for a great listen.

Overall, I found this track to be a good choice as a single. I give it 8/10.
