Houston, Texas is known for some of the amazing musicians from around the world. One of the world’s leading female singers Beyonce also counts her Houston roots for her worldwide success. It seems there is no stopping in talent from Houston, Texas as native Blake Wharton has proved with his new single “The Sweetest Love”. Blake who is currently on temporary hiatus from professional racing decided to do what any multi-talented individual does best (i.e get into the recording studio) to produce a work of music art and “The Sweetest Love” was the result. A certified hit that dives straight into our favorite subject of love and relationships. Who isn’t interested in love and relationship? That is a rhetorical question.
“The Sweetest Love” is catchy and everything comes off with great naturalness and consideration. The chorus is the song’s unquestioned musical high point and both singer and musicians alike transition into those moments with a seamlessness that’s quite satisfying to hear and handled with immense skill. Much of his effort focuses on filling the song with the needed emotion and technique and his ability to keep these often opposing elements in full harmony is one of the great strengths of “The Sweetest Love”. These are basic human emotions that the song explores, emotions virtually any adult has experienced in their lives, and Blake gets inside the reality of such moments with a steady hand and a definite sense of something at stake with the recording and lyrics alike.
His phrasing is powerful without ever being too theatrical and, like all great musicians, Blake never oversings and his unwillingness to waste even a syllable’s worth of breath in self-indulgence makes this an even more memorable track. The latest single from this Houston performer represents a quantum leap forward in his career and further establishes him as a solo artist to watch for years to come.
