Welcome back to another Space Discovery!
Today we’re going to meet with an incredibly talented singer from Kansas City, United States. We’re really excited to introduce you to the singer-songwriter and producer John Long. He just released his second single of 2022 in this busy period and it is called “Only Limit Is You”.
This track merges different genres and styles in a unique and solid way. While being a pop tune, the sound design borrows from different genres including pop-rock, Synth-wave and EDM. A track produced and thought in very finely detail, full of ear-candies that make the song incredibly catchy and still new after every listen. The theme of the song is filled with hope and faith which resembles John Long’s ideals and religious beliefs.
An uplifting chorus with lyrics and melody that get easily stuck in your head. You gonna whistle this track without even noticing and singing by yourself “I believe in you, you believe it too” while walking around your house or while going to work. An incredibly fresh track that is gonna accompany us all year long, especially in Summer.
And now let’s go dive together with John Long into his latest release and background with our Space Discovery Interview.
Welcome to Space John!!
Congratulations on your new release! Briefly present yourself to our Space Travellers!
Hello! My name is John Long. I am a US-based singer songwriter and producer working as a full time musician in various fields of the industry.
What’s the story behind your latest release?
Only Limit Is You was written with a friend of mine based in Saudi Arabia. It was written to build confidence in the heart of the listener. The purpose behind the song is to encourage people to not limit their own potential and to become the person they envision they are.
What are your plans for the future?
After six years of professional work with many other artists in the music industry, I have set out to make my own mark in the world of culture and music. I started releasing music in late 2021 and have many plans to continue that trend further. I have a full length project set to release in the Spring of 2022.
If you had a time machine, in which era would you travel and which kind of music would you bring with you in the past?
What a question! I love the era we are in now. I believe there is a reason each of us were born when we were born and we all have a purpose to fulfill while we are here but if I had to choose a different era, I would say the 50’s. Big band is absolutely amazing. I would love to have blended the big band sound of the 50’s with the modern synth-pop (maybe future pop) of today. Having the clean and full low end of modern music with the brashness and intensity of a 50’s big band would be so amazing. Not to mention the vocalists from that time.. how they would absolutely slay some great music today.
