Amy Guess Moonlight

It’s a common misconception that the most powerful pop singers have already been discovered, and they are plucked out of obscurity by a nameless, faceless record label executive and groomed for the mainstream. Waiting to be discovered doesn’t get you very far, and it allows you even less room for creative control. This is where Las Vegas-by-way-of-Calgary pop artist Amy Guess comes in. Instead of waiting for her big break, she’s out there scrapping, producing and performing for as many fans (and channels to reach them) as possible, and that hard work is paying off.

Since her debut record release, Amy has steadily (and rapidly) accumulated a large following on Facebook and YouTube, impressively clocking over one million views and counting since her first video upload. But what may be more impressive is how Amy looks to leverage this exposure with the release of her new single “Moonlight.”

Amy Guess is both beautiful and ambitious; beyond that, however, she has a clear grasp on what makes a great pop song and possesses great control over her best asset, her voice. Her clear tone and technique come shining through on this record, and the song arrangement capitalizes on this. Lyrically and melodically, Amy exhibits that extra spark that makes a great pop performer; her personality and drive shine through on this single. And there’s no doubt that “Moonlight” is a contender for mainstream play; While the songwriting is solid, however, it’s Amy’s performance that amps it up to another level.

Like her contemporaries in Ellie Goulding and Christina Perri, Amy Guess delivers atmospheric, compelling pop that relies on her artistic ability to exploit her own vulnerability. The result is a catchy, melodic single that delivers strong vocals and a killer dance beat. “Moonlight” is a great pop performance, and Amy Guess is ready for her spotlight.
