If you haven’t heard of the solo project THE GINGER, it’s time to dust off those live music headphones and listen up. “I’m On Your Side” is one of a few handful of songs released by THE GINGER mastermind, Christoffer Englund, and it has quickly become a favorite tune of mine. The Stockholm native has evidently been honing his musical style over the past few years and the hard work is definitely on full display.
“I’m On Your Side” showcases Christoffer’s emotionally charged vocals which jump right out at you and fill in every bit of air around you. Just take a listen to the latest live performance video, shot at the Södra Bar this past July, and you will experience this phenomenon for yourself. The overall sound is lush and full and has a way of inviting you to jump up with your eyes closed while breathing in that exact moment. I absolutely love the energy and the passion thrown around from the jam session that closes out this performance.
As you will soon find out, THE GINGER prove right out of the gate that playing live is a definitive strength. “I’m On Your Side”, “The End” and “Sylva” stand out as three fantastic in person demonstrations of this fact and show the foundation is there to build on. The future looks bright and I look forward to seeing where the journey may take them. If you have the chance to see THE GINGER live make it happen. I know I will!
