AJ Whyte Hits It Home With 'Run'

Run (Single)

AJ Whyte

AJ Whyte takes yet another leap out of Rutland with his release of, 'Run'. The captivating style of the folk artist's songwriting is what keeps me captivated by his latest offering, and it's clear that this is a step in the right direction!

The song 'Run' is all about facing challenges and discovering that one has placed themself in a dangerous situation in life. It is unclear whether the title is meant to suggest that one should run into the danger head first, leaving fear at the door, or to get away from the danger all together, but either way it is a striking narrative that spans itself far through a variety of stories and topics including love and romance as well as war.

Vocally, AJ Whyte is gaining more and more self-assurance with each new track, and he exemplifies his quality here on 'Run,' which he wrote and performed himself. His sound is reminiscent of the work of some of the all-time greats in the folk genre, but it also possesses an endearing quality that is unmistakably AJ's. Also, his playing style, while keeping similar to his previous tune, has plenty more to offer, and the track's numerous twists and turns keeps me fascinated the whole way through.

Towards the end of the track, the passion gets even more intense with the energy levels reaching an all-time-high. It feels like the adrenalin is hitting us squarely in our face and we find ourselves right in the heart of the wordplay and music which AJ provides.
