Music Review: Manuel Burns – Take Me Away

Take Me Away, the debut single by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Manuel Burns, reads like a contemplative drive with the top down, under the stars on a warm summer night.

Resolute guitar riffs clack like a freight train in the distance. The hook-heavy blend of country and blues brings forth images of balmy summer nights.

Burns’ distinctive voice is a warm a welcoming introduction to his unfussy and laidback lyrics.

A charming debut making me curious to hear more. Not to mention would make a great addition to a road trip playlist.
