Top Tracks: Alex Francis – All I’ve Got

Music isn’t an exact science, there’s no ready-made formula for success. People can spend their lives working to make a hit, and sometimes, as with ‘All I’ve Got’, all the elements can come together as if by magic to create something truly compelling and timeless. This track, taken from his upcoming EP A Stronger Love out 1st December, really lets his gritty vocals steal the spotlight in its more subdued, bluesy moments, before kicking into full-blown anthemic territory in the killer chorus. Talking about how we need to take a step back from this material world and focus on the people who really matter, the lyrics keep to the same high standard set by the music. This really is up there with some of the best work that any modern singer/songwriters I’ve heard have to offer.
