Rating: 4/5 ♥♥♥

Nathan Morris takes his personal experiences to produce genuine lyrics that are relevant to the listeners from various walks of life. Nominated as an independent artist of the year, and having sounded infinitely in the Starbucks internationally between 2008 and 2009 with his song “Closure”, while “Closer Like Me” was playing on some American Airlines flights. Last year was the beginning of a new era for Nathan Morris. Powered by acclaimed Grammy nominated, Dove Award winning and producer Ryan Farish, this year give us an advance of a renewed and fresh sound with “Just Me, Just You - EP”.

The titletrack “Just Me, Just You” quickly convinces us of the musical evolution of Morris. Ryan Farish added style and complemented the sexy voice of Nathan making a song with features of electro pop and R&B that is easily compared to well-known Ne-Yo. The lyrics talks about a boy regretted of his words, the mistakes he made in his relationship, and that all he wants is keep love away: “You got my heart in your pocket / don’t drop it”. I love the synths in the chorus and the vocal versatility of this track. The abstract “It’s Criminal”, guilty accused that girl who has stolen the heart and passion of our lives. Finally, “Lost Without You” is inclined to Chris Brown, with lovely lyrics and melody. No matter where we go, the faces we see, we are convinced that without this love we are lost.

Although, before Nathan Morris could be compared musically with Coldplay or Keane, the metamorphosis of his sound is positive. Now we could say that Nathan Walters, Owl City and Lights are his biggest influences, and his compositions include large-scale improved.

Nathan Morris toma sus experiencias personales para producir letras genuinas que son relevantes para los oyentes de diversas profesiones y condiciones sociales. Nominado como artista independiente del año, y habiendo sonado infinitamente en los Starbucks a nivel internación entre el 2008 y 2009 con su tema “Closure”, mientras que “Closer Like Me” sonaba en los vuelos de American Airlines. El año pasado fue el inicio de una nueva era para Nathan Morris. Impulsado por el aclamado nominado al Grammy, ganador de los premios Dove y productor Ryan Farish, este año nos presentan un adelanto de un renovado y fresco sonido con “Just Me, Just You - EP”.

El titletrack “Just Me, Just You” rápidamente nos convence de la evolución musical de Morris. Ryan Farish ha agregado su estilo y ha complementado la atractiva voz de Nathan logrando una canción pop con rasgos de electro y R&B que fácilmente se comparan al experimentado Ne-Yo. La letra habla sobre un muchacho arrepentido de las palabras, los errores que cometió en su relación, y que lo único que anhela es impedir que el amor desaparezca: “You got my heart in your pocket / don’t drop it”. Me encantan los sintetizadores en el coro y la versatilidad vocal de este track. La abstracta “It’s Criminal” acusa de culpable a aquella chica que ha robado el corazón y la pasión de nuestras vidas. Por último, “Lost Without You” se inclina por Chris Brown, con una encantadora letra y melodía. No importa donde vayamos, los rostros que veamos, estamos convencidos que sin ese amor estamos perdidos.

Si bien, antes Nathan Morris podía ser comparado musicalmente con Coldplay o Keane, la metamorfosis de su sonido es positiva. Ahora podríamos decir que Nathan Walters, Owl City y Lights son sus mayores influencias, y cabe mencionar que sus composiciones han mejorado en gran escala.
