Smily’s featured track January 2021

Hello all you wonderful music loving humans. It has been a while since I have been actively posting articles on my blog.

Last year I started out active and extra happy, looking forward to sharing many musical and travel adventures in addition to the usual featured tracks and Artists I like to support here.

2020 didn’t quite go as planned for any of us including my plans for the blog and artist support. As we are now starting in 2021 and still unsure if how all will unfold this year, I’d like to remain hopeful. I wish all of you health and the best this year as well.

I would like to kick off the year with my first featured track article. This track is one I discovered last year and played a lot. Let’s get started

A bit about the artist by the artist

Hi there, I am Jeremy Greysmark. I am a music producer and have been playing the piano since a young This is somethang that influenced my music, and made me very melody oriented.

The way I personally like to work is by starting by writing a colourful melody purely on the piano. If it sounds good on there, it will work in a full track.

I was born and raised in Germany. I lived and worked in Scotland and then moved to London in 2014 where I am still currently based.

One of the things I have had the honor to do were writing the music for the closing ceremony of a German music festival called Parookaville in the years 2015 2016 and 2017. I also work as a sound designer for animations.

A bit about the track by the Artist

I wrote Faceless when I lived in Scotland, Aberdeen. In the same year I moved to London and discovered that Jodie my flatmate was an excellent singer.

This song uses a variety of delays and pianos to create this unique sounding melodic plucky instrument. Vocal chops of Jodie have been used in the drop to make it sound different. The vocals have not been pitched like in a lot of other songs, which makes it feel more organic and give this song this deep feel. 

The lyrics and the general feel came from the daily chore of commuting in London or any other big city for that matter. Everything is very anonymous, people just care for themselves and everyone is just out to help themselves. Everybody on a daily commute is literally faceless. People concentrate not to make eye contact in order to make it to the end of the day quicker. Any distraction or hold up is inconvenient and the daily “rat race” just seems never-ending

A bit about the Artist by Smily

Jeremy and I have followed each other on twitter for quite sometime. I’ve always enjoyed our interactions, listening to melodies he created and posted and him commenting on tracks I’ve shared as well as joining in on some of the random things I like to do on Twitter to connect with humans worldwide. I enjoy our conversations and appreciate the way he focuses on the melody.

A bit about the track by Smily

One one of my routine Artist Support playlists I was building, Jeremy sent me this track. When I listened to it I immediately liked it. The melody is great and catchy while remaining unique, I love that the vocals were not autotuned (which I feel gets so overused in this industry) and the message touched me too. I am the kind of human that enjoys connecting with people, and often when these kind of routines fall into place maybe we can feel a distance building.

I enjoyed the track so much that I submitted it to be part of my monthly radioshow that I have had the honor to air on Bostin Radio. They loved the track there as well and have made it a part of their regular rotation of music 🎶

I think after 2020 we all need human connections even more then ever and when we go back to a more adjusted life I hope we will keep this in mind and find the right balance.

Now it is your turn, listen to the music here and let me know your thoughts. Remember to support your artists, they need it so they can continue to make more music 🎶
