Song of the day: Jonathan Sparks - Surrender


Jonathan Sparks, an Atlanta-based singer-songwriter, is one of the most varied performers on the scene. Sparks, who has previously performed in the bands Lucid Rain (2004) and Poésis (2007), is commencing his solo career, producing rock-infused compositions with a hint of blues. Sparks is already selling out venues in Atlanta, including the city's legendary Velvet Note and Smith's Olde Bar in downtown, after touring the country opening for Tom Petty and Santana's original band. Sparks has been releasing a new single every month in 2022, working with Peter Barker, who served as chief engineer at Sony Studios in the 1990s and has more recently produced music for bands such as Fall Out Boy, Jeff Beck, and Guns N' Roses.

This is his new single, called Surrender. The song starts with a tasty riff and with intense vocals by Jonathan. My favourite part of the song is probably the chorus, very catchy and well performed (I love the rhythm section there). There are also lots of very interesting soloing guitar parts, if you are a 6 strings lover. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and don't forget to follow Jonathan Sparks on social media as well.
