Lovely vocal and guitar melodies and an upbeat vibe make the latest single from Christo Graham stand out. It’s taken from the Canadian singer-songwriter’s new album, ‘Turnin”, due out on 6th November. The album is a journey through Graham’s memories that was sparked when he took home a four-track tape recorder that belonged to his grandma, on which he found two recordings that she had made many years previously, singing four-part harmonies with herself. This musical treasure proved to be an inspiration and Graham had recorded twelve new songs within a month.
The nostalgic video is a perfect accompaniment to the song as Graham explains: “I had this stack of miniDV tapes from the last four or five years and I hadn’t been able to do anything with the bits of footage. The song is about searching through memories for a specific moment… I thought it would fit perfectly, the music video being a collage of all these scraps.”
Graham began writing and producing music at home at the age of just 13. With just a guitar and a Casio keyboard, he created new ‘Casiocoustic’ folk albums every summer (a brilliant new genre). Life and recording moved on but now Graham has found himself recording at home once again. Beginning with the memories stirred up on ‘Lucky Me’, the new album charts that journey and the way it comes back around to the beginning. Enjoy.
