Just A Jester
Someone Like You
Timothy Whitaker is set to release his brand new single, Someone Like You; the second track in a couplet of songs aimed at raising awareness of the UK suicide rate. This being averaged at 91 per week, Just A Jester means business with this acoustic rock number. He's no stranger to making a scene, under Tim's belt are already seven appearances at Britain's world famous Glastonbury event. He's also made music with Stuart Copeland of The Police and supplied his talents for the likes of BBC 1 and their seven million strong audience.
It opens with a happy high end fill that's buffeted by quick pace strummed guitar. Drums add a chemistry of jumping around while lyrics throw in their joyous poetical lines. Catchy tunes hold everything together, words with poignant resonances tell the story of someone who isn't happy with who they are. I've been there, it's not easy with all the pressures of society. Accepting who we are is a matter of confidence in ability to learn, making peace with the fact we're not always awesome. The cycles of life are always showing us people who are doing a better job of it, they're our angels.
It's an easy going song with a heavy message, either to be addressed cerebrally as I just did or just listened and danced to in a flurry of summery fun. The riffs strike cheery circulations of progression while the jocular singing style encourages a feel good atmosphere of warmth. This ought to be one to remember.
