Ewan Sim: Tracks That Shaped My Sound

In the throbbing heart of Manchester's music scene, Ewan Sim emerges as a formidable force, making 2024 a monumental year for this extraordinary songwriter. Drawing inspiration from the timeless voices of yesteryear and today, Sim crafts a genre-defying sound that seamlessly fuses Soul, Pop, and R&B. His raw vocals and heartfelt lyrics have earned him notable accolades, with Clash Magazine singing praises for this rising star.

With radio plays on BBC Introducing and BBC Upload in Manchester, Ewan Sim's musical journey is swiftly gaining momentum, promising an electrifying fusion of soulful melodies and poignant storytelling.

Paolo Nutini - Through The Echoes

Been at huge fan of Paolo Nutini for years - seen him live four times including his intimate comeback show at The Leadmill in Sheffield in 2022 which was special to say the least! 

I take huge inspiration from his vocals and ability to put pure soul and passion into his performance and writing. If you haven’t already watch his ‘Iron Sky’ Abbey Road live session on youtube - you will not be disappointed. 

Jorja Smith - Falling or flying

Jorja Smith’s latest album falling or flying was a real stand out for 2023. Her voice, instantly recognisable and it’s clear to see the various genre influences throughout the album, with the underlying foundations of Soul and R&B. ‘Little Things’ along with the title track, both on repeat since release. Manifesting a dream collab with her in the future! 

Maverick Sabre - Let Me Go

Maverick Sabre - another soulful singer songwriter (you can see a pattern to my selections) I’ve really delved into his back catalogue - the mans not afraid to speak his mind and write about his views on the world and society. Something which is very admiral and the true essence of ‘soul’ music. His live show at my favourite Manchester venue, the Albert Hall was an inspirational night for me.  

Joesef - Just Come Home With Me Tonight 

Joesef is an artist that has really stood out to me in recent years - incredible heartfelt vocals, lyrics and the production in his music is amazing. Again, I saw him live at Manchester Academy last year giving a memorable performance. Honest, vulnerable and soulful songwriting, something I myself as an artist try to implement in my own music.
