“"This new single from artist WANDERRAVEN is a sexy well produced jam with hints of electronica and acoustic pop. WANDERRAVEN'S vocals are cut through the rhythm track and make you want to sing along from the first hook and the lyrical play keeps you hanging on to every word until the very last note. This song feels like it was made for radio and could even be featured in some new sexy HBO show at some point. I would definitely put WANDERRAVEN on your playlist now so that you will be able to tell everyone, "I heard him first!""”
“Michael Pearsall, a New Jersey native, has a cool vibey pop, electronic, indie music solo project called Wanderraven. His live performance setup is pretty interesting... he integrates electronic loop triggers mixed with live vocals and melodic guitar riffs.”
The New Jersey native, after traveling the country and the world over with acclaimed rock band Honor By August, settled in East Nashville and began recording his debut solo album last year. Heavily influenced by great songwriters and the worldwide connection to a hot beat, WANDERRAVEN creates a sonic landscape that makes you feel good but also has depth.
A singer/songwriter at heart, he embraced the tradition of music city and co-wrote most of the tracks on the album. One of the two he penned himself, “Wild One”, sounds most like it was recorded in the Nashville that comes to mind when one hears the city’s name. The majority of the songs however are a beat-driven blend of electronic drums, pop synths and funky guitars that keep the groove permeating throughout, while subtle accents of acoustic guitar reveal a human touch. Lyrically, karmic memories and aspirations emerge, dealing with the real world, our spiritual path, and relationships - all delivered authentically in a distinctive voice.
Drawing on an array of influences (The Weeknd, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Ed Sheeran, Chromeo, Gotye) the songs are well crafted and elevated by tasteful production. High energy and passion do not give up easily as songs change, offering new perspectives. As the album progresses, it gives way to intimacy and intention. The process leaves you with all the feels in mind, body and spirit with moments of magic calling you to new levels.
If music is a guide for sacred journeys, WANDERRAVEN is here to make an offering:
Practice The Future.
