Australian musician and songwriter, Blake Rose returns this week with the release of a brand new song, “Ordinary People,” out now via AWAL Recordings. Listen to “Ordinary People” HERE.
Speaking about the song, Blake reveals, “I don’t fall for people very easily, but when I do it’s hard and very spontaneous. I was hanging out with this girl for no longer than a week, but I fell head over heels and this song is a result of that. It’s a word for word recount of exactly what happened during that brief but unforgettable period of time.”
Ordinary People” follows the release of ‘Rest Of Us,’ a self-proclaimed “middle finger to anyone who doesn’t want you to live your dream.” Elaborating upon the song’s origins, Blake explains, “A friend of mine wanted to be a musician but his family was not supportive. This took a toll on him and he ended up never pursuing his dream. You hear about stuff like this happening all the time and I think it’s incredibly sad that there are so many people in the world whose art we will never have the chance to discover because some narrow minded folk decided to steer them away from doing what they love. F*ck those people.” Listen to “Rest Of Us” HERE and watch the video HERE.
