If mother nature could sing she’d sound like Nicki Wells.
That pretty much sums up what the singer-composer’s freshest creation ‘Carry On’ sounds like, and you cannot fight us on that. There’s an indescribable greatness behind the song. The thoughtfulness that has gone behind it is just one way its power is manifested. What strikes us is what Wells calls the “heartbeat of the record”: a time-worn and muted toned piano upon which the artist marked her first piano playing memories. The instrument lies at the core of the track and infuses the surrounding sounds with life.
We know we are definitely infused with life listening to ‘Carry On’. The track is the prime example of music successfully reaching its objective. In this case, it’s that of evoking hope, warmth, beauty and serenity. A heavenly crafted number, ‘Carry On’ by Nicki Wells has powers beyond our understanding, and we couldn’t recommend you listen to it enough.
You can also listen to ‘Carry On’ in our Folk This Way playlist.
