‘Carry You’ is the latest single from BRIAN OWENS who won a multitude of friends in the soul community with his albums ‘Soul Of Ferguson’ and his Johnny Cash tribute ‘Soul Of Cash’.
‘Carry You’ , we’re told, is taken from Mr Owens’ upcoming 2020 long player and sonically it has an old school country/soul ballad feel to it while some of the singer’s mannerisms might remind you of Marvin Gaye – a point already made by many commentators.
Lyrically the song explores the challenges of parenthood. Brian says: “‘Carry You’ was written at a time that my family was experiencing one of the most challenging seasons we have ever encountered. In particular, my wife and I and a young man who we have come to know and love as our very own son. Little did I know that I would end up writing a song as a letter to my son in his time of trial. For my wife and I, the most difficult times in parenting have been those moments when we see our children in distress and have seemingly no tangible solution. And then, our father, the Heavenly father, reminds us that those who carry others also need to be carried and that He is the great Carrier of us all. His presence, love and assurance would ultimately be the answer, and we passed that love on to our son.”
