R G Acoustic - For The Best
R G Acoustic is one of those upcoming artists that's completely undiscovered. This is the first time he's shared his music with the world. This week he released his soothing debut single 'For The Best'. Instrumentally it is beautifully executed, with such a comforting sound. The raw acoustic guitar matches the raw emotion of the love song, with the heartfelt lyrics focusing on keeping your guard up in a relationship to prevent getting hurt by letting someone walk all over you.
R G Acoustic is the stage name of the 26 years old singer/songwriter Robert Garbett from Devon, who picked up his guitar over 14 years ago but has only recently taken the step to start performing his songs. This is his debut single but like most singer-songwriters he's been writing songs for much, much longer, which explains the maturity in his song.
Garbett takes many musical influences, I was shocked to hear that some elements of his writing style come from metal and heavy rock bands. However, I found this a brilliant revelation, it gave me a whole new perception of his music. In a huge contrast to this, I would more closely compare this first single to the likes of Bear's Den and Bon Iver - who couldn't be further from any heavy-metal bands!
Overall this is a mature, calming, heartfelt song with an impressive instrumental. As debut singes go, it's not going to set the world alight but it is worth a listen.
