Spotlight Interview with Henry Aberson
Henery Aberson teamed up with a few others and released a gorgeous and smooth single that breeds a contemporary pop and an R&B tonality to really build an atmosphere that has a way of taking you to a different place all together.
"At The End of The World" is an incredibly alluring and sultry single that features soulful and passionately performed vocals by Stephanie Oliver.
Oliver adds such a beautiful layer to the already lush track, and they really bring everything together in a smart and addictive way.
Aberson has a way with arrangement and really falls right into those keys and guitars like a champion as the entire song becomes something you can picture in your head somehow.
The performance on the instrumentation is outstanding and it all has such a laid back and effortless feel to it like it's all second nature for Aberson and Oliver obviously vibes with that so well that it all just clicks.
It's a song of appreciation and love. It feels good to listen to and it's absolutely perfect for a slow dance with your loved one.
An experienced and mature sense of musicianship stands out here and it surely makes for a song that breathes as it plays on.
