FRESH: ‘Changes’ – Caroline Gustavsson

Caroline Gustavsson seeks “Changes”

Pop

Swedish singer/songwriter Caroline Gustavsson has just released her brand new single “Changes”, her first of 2021, that tells a tale getting through tought times and coming out the other side.

The song has a positive message delivered with a mid-tempo, soft-rock/pop backing track, reminiscent of Celine Dion’s finest from her “One Heart” album.

Caroline made her debut in 2018 with “Breaking Down My Walls” and had built an impressive colelction of songs ever since to her most recent released, the guitar acoustic ballad “In Your Hands”, last year. “Changes” is a more vibrant tune that outlines the facing challenges in life and keeping on believing you’ll get through these hard times, even though it might feel difficult and perhaps even impossible at the time, with a little bit of a Country twang for added pleasure!

Caroline says of the song: ”When I wrote this song it was like having a heart to heart conversation with a close friend, trying to cheer him or her up, though instead it was a conversation with myself. Life felt very challenging at the time and I couldn’t really see how or when things were going to get better. I didn’t even have the intention of writing a regular song when I sat down with my guitar, I just needed to get my feelings out. Suddenly I felt so much lighter, since I managed to reassure myself I was going to get through this in some way”.

Keep believing, there is a light coming towards us all very soon and listening to Caroline’s “Changes” will offer some escape as well as hope for a brighter future.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
