Last year Toronto-based singer-songwriter Jhyve dropped one of the best singles of 2018 titled “Purpose” — which was featured on our old blog. The emotionally-driven song stayed on repeat for weeks thanks to its relatable content and the singers mesmeric vocal performance. Since then he has landed several song on Spotify’s Canada Viral Top 50 playlist, opened for international acts like Jessie Reyez and even received a JUNO Award nomination for his last EP Conversations.
The underrated artist pours his heart out again on his first single of the year “Anyways”, it’s another beautiful song with personal and more relatable lyrics built over a smooth R&B production that seamlessly match with his excellent vocal performance. As a listener you instantly connect with it, and some listeners may even wonder why Jhyve still hasn’t reached heights as other Canadian acts such as dvsn, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods and many more, because he’s certainly a talented and marketable singer-songwriter. Press play and add this to your playlists.
“We all hit a low point so deep that it makes us wonder what awful choices we made to get us there. A point that makes us look for meaning in the suffering. My low was this past year: I went from gaining momentum as a singer, opening sets for huge international artists, and award nominations, to living back home with my dad, fighting with my label, and wondering if my opportunity had passed me by. In my darkest moment, I picked up my guitar, poured my pain into my art, and somn happened: The music became more than the sound coming thru my speakers–it became the soundtrack to my healing” — Jhyve.
