At it's core, songwriting is all about telling a story. Putting the listener into a place where they can feel what you're feeling, all while striking chords of their own memories and emotions. Singer-songwriter Daniel Montoya is doing exactly that with his track "On My Way."
Released a while back as part of his EP Nothing For Us, Montoya taps into the heart of Americana as he plucks his acoustic guitar along with his yearning filled and life-worn vocals.
By the second chorus "On My Way," it swells into a beautiful Brit-pop influenced affair, complete with drum machines and ringing electric guitar, until the song gently comes back to earth -- all reminding the listener of just how far they still have to go despite being on their way. But the hopeful tone makes me think that Montoya wouldn't want it any other way.
