Review Written by Ionas Finser & Staff
Gordy Garris’ ardent, heartfelt vocals are the first thing we hear in “Stole My Heart,” supported by a triumphant 6-4-1-5 piano progression. At first, the mix may seem minimal, but this is only temporary. A voice-piano duo soon turns into a burst of color by the end of the first chorus, complete with guitar, percussion, rich cello, and even a soloing violin. Gordy Garris turns what was a pleasant, sweet song into a symphony exploding with sound and contrapuntal melodies at every turn.
Garris’ lyrics are dedicated to the never-give-up attitude of someone who can never seem to find reciprocation in love. The artist perfectly captures the feeling of the young love that we can all relate to, and stays true to his honest, vulnerable tone throughout the song.
“You stole my heart What would it take to steal yours too? You stole my heart I can't get over loving you”
Gordy Garris has undeniably demonstrated his mastery as a songwriter, and his sixth sense for development and timing. Everything in “Stole My Heart” echoes upon the artist’s core message, reverberating out into space as a multitude of instrumental voices. Garris’ pure voice and charm will not fail to draw you in and win you over.
