Of course, Bruno Major would have the perfect voice and intimate artistry to deliver a sublime holiday canticle. I can’t wait to finally see the UK singer songwriter and producer live when he finally makes his way across the pond to perform as part of Noise Pop Festival next February, and now I get to melt into this cozy snug, satin nuzzling song over Christmas, too! Romance is in the air as we sway to I Think It Must Be Christmas, a mellow strumming, jazzy velutinous song. Even Santa would take a moment away from his busy duties on Christmas morning to drift away to the velveteen lullaby. Find out about Bruno Major’s North American tour in early 2018, here. And if you’ve yet to listen to his outstanding debut album A Song For Every Moon, stream it, here.

We already learned from Jack Vallier’s past couple of releases that this rising English artist’s music is good for us. He caresses our hearts and moves the soul with his heartfelt pop on new single Good For You, too. He teams back up with ever brilliant songwriter Bruno Major on this new track about accepting unrequited love. Good For You’s breezy soulful alt pop is a lush stirring, snug thawing dose of poignant romance. It’s sure to keep us warm through the colder months ahead, even in our darkest moments of deep yearning and intense longing. Jack Vallier is working on a debut EP for later this year. You can stream his prior singles on Soundcloud, here.

We’ve been following along with British singer songwriter Bruno Major throughout his ‘A Song For Every Moon’ journey, and it’s brought us such exquisite feels and tear jerking catharsis from start to finish. The musician, who’s also lent his talent to many other artist’s songs lately despite how busy he’s been with his own, completes the project with its final track, On Our Own, a hushed and tender ballad replete with honeyed vocals, lush mournful strings, and gently lamenting keys. Bruno Major wrote the song after the death of his grandmother and a subsequent conversation with his mother about religion. It feels as if we’ve embarked on our own soul searching, heart seeking mission as we sway to his intimate serenade. A Song For Every Moon is available digitally now, and it’ll be released on a limited run of 12″ vinyl come November. Bruno Major will also be embarking on a spate of headline shows across the globe this fall, with stops in Brooklyn, LA, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, and London. For more details about both his album and the tour, head to his official site, here.

Jack Vallier is a newcomer who’s buzzing off the fresh success of debut single Rebekah. The English artist follows the song up with a new blend of emotive pop beats and eloquent songwriting on second single The Boy You Knew, a raw and honest confessional bursting with classy sophistication and lovelorn passion. Aside from presenting us his stunningly soulful, deep and mature voice, The Boy You Knew also sees Jack Vallier linking up with IHM favorite and London based songwriter, producer, and singer Bruno Major. It’s no wonder this alt pop ballad is so unpredictably complex and jazzy articulate, with its soft skidding high hats, evocative keys, and florid soundscape. Jack Vallier has already gained many fans across Radio 1 back in the UK, with a wealth of support from MistaJam and Huw Stephens. His breakout track Rebekah, which you can stream below, has already amassed 800K streams. The Boy You Knew is available for streaming/purchasing, here.

True story, I was listening to that fantastic new London Grammar record (Truth Is A Beautiful Thing) the other day while driving to work when my mind strayed from band member Dot Major to his brother, Bruno Major. I started wondering when we’d hear the next song from the gifted songwriter and musician, having been so moved by each of the treats he’s given us in his song-a-month journey these past 11 months. It felt like it had been ages since we melted to tender piano ballad Places We Won’t Walk, or at least it felt that way, since we’re always looking forward to his next song. I sauntered into work, and what was sitting in my inbox for a lucky preview but this month’s song, Cold Blood, which also happens to be the final release before the UK artist releases a cumulative album. Despite its name, there’s nothing “cold” about this stunning fusion of acoustic instrumentals and twilight atmospheric electronica. It’s like HONNE’s Warm On A Cold Night, but peeled back to its inherent tender rawness. Cold Blood thaws the heart with a weathered, tattered charm even as it woos us with sweet romanticism. And there’s just no resisting Bruno’s soulful crackling, emotionally charged voice. You can listen to Bruno Major’s A Song For Every Moon series on Soundcloud, here

New Los Angeles artist Jae Stephens made an enduring impression on us when she made her debut last month with 24k, a truly solid gold offering that introduced us to her immaculate voice. She now follows it up with another classy elegant, opalescent curling alt R&B and electro soul dazzler named Every Time. She’s even linked up with one of our absolute faves of the year, Bruno Major, on the song. The bold rotund, edgy swelling production on the track is heart stopping, as are Jae Stephens’ plumed, lustrous vocals. Every Time is available now from iTunes, here.

With every new month comes a brand new gem from Bruno Major. Places We Won’t Walk is the latest song in his ongoing series of monthly releases, which will culminate in the release of a full album later this summer. The tender piano ballad is as stripped down as we’ve heard the UK singer songwriter. Despite its simplicity, Places We Won’t Walk is as stirring as ever. It’s a delicately enchanting lullaby and absorbing serenade on which Bruno Major’s comforting voice soothes the heart while evoking dusty memories of our faded youth. Places We Won’t Walk would be perfect for a quiet afternoon at the park, or a lengthy visit to an open air cafe. I could people watch forever in bliss to the sound of this gorgeous tune.
