M. Jack Bee : Sound of Love
Byron Bay's M. Jack Bee has a beautiful voice, a low timbre with smooth edges and a wry undertone that climbs into a strained alto every now and then. His publicist compares him to Neil Diamond and Jack Ladder and that's about right - he's a youthful indie pop crooner with a polished, slightly husky charm. His voice takes centre stage in this song, accompanied by slim piano notes, steady tom slaps and barely-there acoustic strumming. It swells and ebbs powerfully around lyrics - a cute meditation on love-on-screen - in an effortless and sophisticated way.
