FUSE is an Atlanta based songwriting duo featuring a variety of alternative rock, pop, classic rock and electronic pop. The project is the brainchild of local Atlanta musicians and songwriters, Byro + Merlo. The goal is to write music that Inspires, Moves and Rocks both as a band but also for placement in movies, tv and for other up and coming artists. Byro previously founded the band Morningside which released their debut album Morning Fit in 2010 while while Merlo released his solo album Songs From The Ground Up in 2008. Both decided to join forces to form FUSE. This is not the first time that the two have played together as they were in a band together briefly before releasing their respective albums. Byro collaborated with Merlo on his song "Every Time I See Her '06 which ended up on his solo album. That collaboration left a mark on Merlo. "It was obvious to me that we had great writing chemistry."
I just stumbled upon this album while searching for music. This album is filled with really good tunes! I have listened to quite a few artists on Jamendo, and some are passable, and a few are good. Fuse is at the top of the heap, IMHO. These guys need more exposure. So, I added a link to the "Connections" album on Facebook. And that, I can honestly say, I have never done until now.
I really enjoyed this track. It has some soulful vocals with straight-forward lyrics that make you forget your surroundings and be a part of the music. Some hints of 60s pop vocal harmonies in the chorus were very nice. Soothing.
