I’ve been a fan of singer/songwriter Justin Utley for years now, so I knew I’d love his single, “All is Bright.” The first holiday release from Justin is a musical reminder that even during these tumultuous times, there’s still a silver lining.
“The pandemic has brought people closer together,” he says. “There’s nothing like spending time surrounded by the people who matter most, even if it’s over Zoom.”
“’All is Bright‘ is about bringing people together to celebrate something meaningful and special,” Justin continues. “I wanted to write a song for the holidays that didn’t have lyrical ties to a specific tradition since we all value different aspects of this time of year.”
The upbeat guitar-driven track offers a perfect setting for Utley’s robust and earnest vocals. Like earlier releases, Utley shows he definitely knows his way to a catchy, feel-good pop chorus. Definitely add this to your regular playlist.
Born and raised in Utah, his music career took off when he was selected to perform at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. His single, “Stand for Something,” won Best Country/Folk Song of the Year at the 2010 OutMusic Awards. SiriusXM’s OutQ Radio later named Justin “Artist of the Year.”
“All is Bright” is available on all digital platforms with all presale proceeds benefitting the Homeless Youth Resource Center of Utah.
