Representing Oakland by way of Boston, singer/songwriter Sarah Vela releases the song "You Give Me" to Soundcloud. Amid the free-speech rallies in Boston and the protests against white nationalists in Oakland, this song reminds us that there are still people with real emotions involved.
Minimal production creates the soundscape for this one. Led by a piano melody, layered with vocals, and sparse use of drums allows the evocative songwriting to shine through:
"I've never been the type to say whats on my mind
but you bring it out in me. You bring it out in me."
Listen to Sarah Vela pour out in "You Give Me."
