Natalie Jean and Levi Moore are excited to announce the much-anticipated release of their Country single, titled, ‘The Letting Go.' The song is a co-write between Michael Peloso and Natalie Jean.
Produced by Alexi Von Guggenberg, is readily available for purchase nationwide at the iTunes Store, Amazon.com, Google Play, and various digital online stores.
"Music aside for a second, the songwriting is where things get personal - where things connect in a more intimate and communicable sort of way. Natalie Jean's smooth and gentle voice offers up the first verse - a certain delicacy that contrasts effectively with the thick drum line and the somewhat manic or anticipating guitar part. Her voice falls into the mix like another instrument, brightening things up, enhancing the ambiance. It's only really when you get to the satisfying resolve of the hook that the lyrics really start to take shape in your mind. The second and third times you listen you pick up on way more about the sentiment and the underlying ideas. It's an inspiring song, learning to move forwards is important - to get over and get on with things. The song hits with impact, it's powerful, and this concept is well represented."
"The set-up of one voice for the first verse and another for the second is not all that common in modern music. It works best when there's a noticeable contrast, a clear cut set of differences that lay out the two leading characters and their sides of the story or their input. Levi Moore's voice adds a gorgeous new dynamic to an already enjoyable and calming piece of music and writing. The two artists together offer so much passion and skill that their performances are mesmerising. The detail throughout this entire release is beautiful, it's a carefully crafted single that has been so well captured that you can listen on repeat and not get tired of the unfolding mightiness and magic. - Stereo Stickman"
"The song binds a beautiful tale of unforgettable love and the strength it bores into the mind and soul of a human body. This track flows over a logical explanation of feelings and relationship which is sure to inspire many young hearts. The audio quality of the song is quite high with keen attention given to making the song enjoyable for the audience."
"Brilliantly penned down by Michael Peloso and Natalie Jean, this track, ‘The Letting Go' is truly a masterpiece by Natalie Jean and Levi Moore. With so much talent and passion merging on a single platform, this track is already a memorandum in the world of amusing harmony. - Skope Magazine - Natalie Parker"

After 3 years, he left the oilfield to become a full-time musician, moving to Savannah, GA and plunging headlong into the coastal fray. After having been nominated for Male Vocalist of The Year in Modern Country at the 2017 Josie Music Awards, He is diligently working at my craft, gigging throughout the week, writing more than ever, and preparing to cut and release my first album this winter.
