Exclusive Premiere: Stream Chris Pastore’s New Single “Deliver Me” 

By: Staff –

Emerging singer-songwriter Chris Pastore is back with his new single “Deliver Me”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below. “Deliver Me” is an acoustic  rock song with a gripping melody and a strong hook. With a musical sound that’s like the Allman Brothers meets Paul Simon meets The Grateful Dead and a voice much like John Mayer, this song is an inspirational one about facing your fears no matter how scary. His soulful, yet light vocals feel airy in contrast to his guitar, giving a feeling of being out of your own body.

“Deliver Me” acts as a musical hug to listeners who have found themselves somewhat in the dark. It’s a reminder that we have all been through moments of utter weakness and helplessness, and although it can be difficult, nightmares must be confronted, consequences must be faced, and there is a path forward. The music builds as the inspiring story unfolds, starting with a delicate acoustic guitar and ending on an orchestral crescendo.

Of the song, Pastore said, “The basic chords and melody for track “Deliver Me” were with me for years before completing it, then 2020 hit and the lyrics and emotion just flowed out of all of us.  Bringing the song idea into the studio brought it to life layering melody and rhythm to a story that acts as a musical hug to listeners who have found themselves somewhat in the dark. It’s a reminder that we have all been through moments of utter weakness and helplessness, and although it can be difficult, nightmares must be confronted, consequences must be faced, and there is a path forward. The music builds as the inspiring story unfolds, starting with a delicate acoustic guitar and ending on an orchestral crescendo.  Halfway through the overdubs the engineer randomly said, “this is your hit song”, and the response has been very positive since.”

Pastore continues, “for me songwriting is a constant, a daily routine, interactions, daydreams, struggles and jubilation, love, fate and sometimes just a good hook and a solid groove,” said Pastore. “Some take years to cultivate and others come in minutes. The words and music can intertwine so simply like pieces of a puzzle when finished, stories like little voyages, then subject to the listeners interpretations and mood. My influences are too many to list. I’ve been writing, performing and recording for 25 years in various groups in the northeast….studied blues and jazz with some great teachers and hit the Baltimore scene right out of college fronting and touring with the group Fat Apple in the late 90’s which gave me the chance to meet many amazing musicians along the way. Recently embarking on my first album in over a decade titled “Turn the Music Up Loud”, a compilation of unrecorded older songs and many new ones. This release features some of the best players and friends that I have ever had the opportunity to share the stage with. Crafted and Recorded at the renowned Wrightway Studios under the care and guidance of Steve Wright, this album has far surpassed all of my expectations and invigorated my passion for songwriting and performance.”

For 25 years, Pastore has been writing and performing music. Right out of college, he hit the Baltimore music scene where he fronted and toured with the group Fat Apple in the late 90’s. Set to release his first album in 10 years, Turn the Music up Loud is a compilation of old songs he’s recorded over the years and new ones he’s recorded with some talented friends at the Wrightway Studios in Baltimore.
