The Songs of Songwriter Glenn Shayne Feat. AJ Lewis - 'To Be Your Man'

Review Written by Ionas Finser & Staff

From the very beginning, it is made clear that the blissful “To Be Your Man” features a groovy saxophone that plays in perfect counter-melody with the melodic movement of the rest of the mix. Electrifying percussion is also very present, featuring shimmering hi-hats and dynamic kicks. The voice of Tunedly and London England's AJ Lewis is smooth, thick, and masterfully trained to beautifully execute run after run of exciting vocal melodies. From start to finish, “To Be Your Man” is freely flowing and soulful in nature.

I imagine “To Be Your Man” as the song that is sung in a musical, as a protagonist proposes to his woman. The song is full of phrases and sentiments that one only ever sincerely expresses to the love of one’s life, and arrives at each conclusion so smoothly that the words evidently represent feelings felt strongly by the artist. The mood of the song as a whole is both joyful and soothing, as Glenn Shayne digs deep to put forth a sense of gratitude for the miracle of true love.

“Against my will I fell in love / In the depths of my heart you move in me / The woman who makes me dance / Because of you, all I want is to be your man”

Glenn Shayne has once again struck straight to the hearts of the world with a song that is rich in emotion and full of relatable feelings and ideas. With musicianship that exceeds any possible expectations, vocals that shine through and delight the ears, and lyrics that are truly moving and sincere, “To Be Your Man” will inevitably find its way into the hearts of multitudes of listeners. Glenn Shayne never fails to step into a song with his full soul and artistic identity, and that is what makes his music so special.
