Gerry Cinnamon is a Glaswegian singer/songwriter and acoustic guitarist, he’s originally from Castlemilk and one of the defining traits of his music is that he retains his native accent when performing. This isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed the artist and you can check that out here. Today, however, I will be reviewing his single ‘Head in the Clouds’ which was released on 13th April 2020, and was featured on his album ‘The Bonny’ which was released on 17th April 2020 by Little Runaway Records.
‘Head in the Clouds’ opens with some smashing, mid tempo acoustic guitar, that merges with a sharp melodic vocal section by Cinnamon. Coming to this track from ‘Hope Over Fear’ is very audibly jarring, they are very different songs, and yet you get the same raw, hauntingly powerful vocals despite the years between the two tracks. This track has a melancholic core to it, particularly the vocable notes throughout which have a distinctly stirring quality to them. He has gotten massively popular since I first heard his music, but if you haven’t heard of Gerry Cinnamon then check out this song and you will regret not hearing him sooner.
So that’s what I thought of Gerry Cinnamon’s single ‘Head in the Clouds’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the artist by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or by visiting their website.
