Reliably informed

A soft, sweet and heartfelt ballad, Safe House, the latest single from singer-songwriter and acoustic rocker McCormick, will soon be joining his impressive back catalogue which stretches back more than ten years. Along with bassist Pete Gifford and drummer Hugh McGouran, McCormick continues to demonstrate his songwriting abilities with this wonderfully easy-going track on a theme of comfort and recovery.

Though not as rocky or as punchy as their other recent releases, such as This Song’s For You or Till The Sun Comes Up, Safe House is kept compelling by a strong melody maintained from beginning to end, supporting Steve McCormick’s gentle vocals – and with a sprinkling of placid piano lines to put the cherry on top.
