Josienne Clarke - "Most of All"

Josienne Clarke has released a new single that is simply magical. "Most of All" is a folk/singer-songwriter track that is just Clarke's vocals and guitar, and it's endlessly compelling. The song is the original demo for a song, but when an artist nails it as perfectly as Clarke did with a demo, why change it? "Most of All" is made better by being so personal and intimate. It feels like Clarke is just playing the song for you to get your thoughts and opinions on it. It's a confessional track that tells Clarke's life story, thus making a deeply personal song sound even more personal.

Josienne Clarke says of her latest single:

“It is a licking of wounds and counting of blessings, taking stock and setting straight in my head. It’s one of those songs where I’m a bit exposed and I almost can’t bring myself to share it. Several times I nearly took it off the tracklist, but experience has taught me, those ones end up being among my audience’s favorite songs.”
