His newest song “Talk to Me” is similar to that of “Get Back Home.” It’s an Avicci and Calvin Harris type song that begins with a fade in of the synthetic melody and rhythm and ends with melodic piano.

From The Artist : “I really enjoy composing and producing music that makes people feel good—the type of music that will hopefully have listeners tapping their feet and humming along to the music long after the song ends. My latest single, ‘Talk to Me’, is in a similar style of my two recent summer releases ‘Waiting For’ and ‘Get Back Home’. It combines melodic pop and EDM to form an upbeat track with a soulful female vocal and smooth melody. For me, the most important part of the song is the simple refrain, which asserts, “Say you’ll give me all that you’ve got.” That lyric encourages and reminds me to strive to give my best effort at everything I do. I hope readers will give the song a listen and that it inspires them to be their best selves!”
