Nashville is not only the home of some of the finest in country music, there's some fresh and exciting new pop originating from the middle of Tennessee as well. Point in case is Daylight Trade that is the teaming of Aaron Michael and Marcus Vaughn.
Craftfully produced and masterfully written, Daylight Trade's music combines vivid melodies with a heartfelt delivery that has a lot of artistic value to it.
The escapist "Stars" is a good example of Daylight Trade's pop sound. It's an uplifting pop track about falling in love and living in the moment that is set to a grooving, laidback rhythm section. "Maybe it's crazy, but maybe it's just what's right. We can shoot for the stars, they ours tonight I'm sure," Michael sings. The equally crisp pop tune "Digital Soul" reveals some of the group's gloomier hues.
"My main inspiration for our music was the feeling of it. I was tired of being in pop groups that had good songs but, no one could move to," Michael writes me. "I think that my idea of a great live show is where the fans spend more time interacting with the music than the artists themselves."
He explains, "There are two sides to our music, a darkside and a lighter side. Sort of a Jekyll and Hyde scenario. People have referred to us as 'Maroon 5 meets Muse.'"
