One of the newest releases from the Bongo Boy Records endless vault of talent is a single from country/Americana singer-songwriter Junior Burke. Residing in rural Colorado, Burke’s music has been recorded by a multitude of artists, earning him both a Gold Record and a Cable Ace Award. In advance of his upcoming release of an album on Bongo Boy Records titled Nothin’ But, Burke has released an absolutely enthralling single that promises big things from his full-length release. The track, titled Any Eyes But Mine, is a stunning example of fresh, well-composed, heartfelt singer-songwriter music.
Burke’s work on Any Eyes But Mine is reminiscent of hearing James Taylor switch gears into a modern Americana sound. Nuanced but uncomplicated melodies and brilliant lyricism are at the heart of this warm and authentic track. The production is bright and clean, a subtle array of instrumentation that allows the song and its lyrical components to be the main focus. Straightforward and digestible, the message of losing in love is crystal clear and framed in a perfectly relatable way:
“Makes no difference what I do or say,
This is one I wasn’t meant to win.
Though you left me long before today,
All that I keep picturing is the way it should have been.”
Don’t forget the bright and clean guitar solo, a smattering of keys, tastefully doubled vocals, and note-perfect harmonies – this track has it all. For fans of Americana/country with soft-pop sensibilities, Any Eyes But Mine is sure to win you over. With Junior Burke’s first Bongo Boy Records album release slotted for April of this year, this is the perfect time to become a fan and get excited for the full-length project hitting the airwaves soon. Because we’d be willing to be that after three minutes of listening to Burke’s sincere and honest songwriting, you’ll be hooked just like we are.
