Acoustic Soul ist ja gerade sehr in Mode. Man denke nur an Michael Kiwanuka und Maverick Sabre. Midé, der 20jährige Songwriter aus London geht auf seiner kostenlosen EP ‚City Lights‘ ähnliche Wege und braucht sich vor den Genannten nicht zu verstecken.
Midé calls it Acoustic Soul and there is no denying the soul in the delightful songs and melodies he delivers. Ever since listening to “Continuum” and “Room for Squares” by John Mayer, a big influence in Midé’s sound, he has developed so much as a songwriter and you only need to hear his new single “City Lights” and new EP to understand. Midé also cites Israel Houghton, Eric Clapton, Jonathan Butler and a host of other greats (united by their expressiveness, soul and their guitars) as his inspiration.
