Rise Rock n’ Shine: Samuel Jack + Chloe Caroline

Whatever reason you’re up early today, we have tunes to make it better.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: A little bit pop, a little bit blues, a whole lot of talent; this is the equation that makes up London singer songwriter Samuel Jack.

What: We’re trying to find the words to describe sparkling pop gem “Feels Like Summer”. What do you say about a song destined for legendary success?

Why: When all your friends tell you about “Feels Like Summer” in a few weeks, you’ll already know all the words (so feel free to brag.)

“Hey guys. This is my brand new single ‘Feels Like Summer’. I had such fun writing this tune, it’s full of nostalgia and memories of the good times. That’s the beauty of music–it can take you anywhere. This song takes me back, forward, and through… I hope it makes you smile just as much as me.” – Samuel Jack

Who: If we had to pick a genre for Chloe Caroline, we’d say it’s “authentic”. If you give the Los Angeles/Nashville based artist a chance, you’ll find she’s a star in every sense of the word.

What: There’s so much nostalgia in “Messy”, you’re gonna want to break out your old chokers and beanie babies–and you should absolutely do that.

Why: Life can be, ahem, messy sometimes but as long as we have songs like “Messy” to get us through, we don’t mind so much.

“We were listening to ‘All I Wanna Do’ by Sheryl Crow and loved how the verses just were so conversational. I knew I wanted to write something kinda funky with hints of old school (kinda my signature!). The rhythmic spoken word sort of verse was totally out of my comfort zone at first but I loved how different it was. I wanted to tell a story and write something feel good but that had some weight to it. ‘Messy’ came about talking about real life stuff that we put to fictitious characters. Jane was the girl who couldn’t stop comparing her life to social media and had a jerk of a boss and was over it. It’s her spewing her thoughts. Ricky was the college star who got injured and lost his dreams to opiate addiction. Real life things of varying degree that both shared the same message: Life is messy but it’s perfect till it’s gone. It celebrates the ups and downs that create our story. It’s reminding us that together we’re all trucking forward on this life— to give yourself a pat on the back, because every day we get up to do it, it’s amazing. We’re alive.” – Chloe Caroline
