Silas Burke – Tail Lights

Silas Burke is a young Birmingham based singer songwriter originally from Sheffield via the US and Canada. His new single Tail Lights is an intelligent piano ballad about the complexities of a long distance relationship. He has a pleasant voice but to me it was his piano playing which really stood out.

Burke seems the sort of artist who will mature and come into his own in the next couple of years. Plus writing his own material if he didn’t reach the heights as a performer, I could certainly see him having a nice future as a songwriter or co-composer with other artists or bands.

If you have a ticket to the sold out Hattie Briggs gig at The Cuban Embassy on September 11th then you will be able to see Burke open for her.
