Vuola - Laugh Vivid Often Adore Unity

Turku, Finland


“Laugh Vivid Often Adore Unity” is the second single of debut artist VUOLA: a Finnish drummer, producer and studio manager, Jussi Vuola.

All proceeds of the single as well as the anticipated, esoteric, heavy hitting May album ‘Alouv’ will be donated to the victims of the Ukraine war via UNICEF.

 

NUMBER 2

See Your Shadow - Missing West Virginia

Phoenix, Arizona, United States


"The song actually came out of a phone call I had with Daniel, my Nashville publisher at the time. As we were talking, he mentioned that he had just met a young singer and had lunch with him earlier that day. I remember after the phone call, this line and melody got stuck in my head. So, I called Daniel back, and I told him that ever since we spoke, I had this line and melody stuck in my head, and the line is ‘Missing West Virginia.’ I asked him why that would be significant, and his response to me was that the singer he just had lunch with was from West Virginia, and he mentioned at lunch how much he misses West Virginia. It was really eerie. I couldn’t ignore all the signs, so I sat down and wrote the piece, even though I myself had never been to West Virginia. I told Richard, (Murray) the story and we worked together on bringing the piece to life.”
