Sean Miller is a singer/songwriter from Petoskey, Michigan who, in the last four years, has primarily played across the state with his band The Real Ingredients. He also recently released a single entitled “Pour Out Your Love.” He originally wrote and recorded the song about two years ago for his girlfriend as a Christmas present but has released it to the world leading up to his album release in April. I have to say this does feel like a song you might write for someone you are in a romantic relationship with. It’s warm, intimate and inviting
The song fits into the singer/songwriter genre and hits a lot of the typical criteria that are associated with it. It has a sensitive, tender and heartfelt type of vibe that covers you with a blanket of melancholy. I would say it also contains inviting overtones that might make you comfortable and perhaps can even provide solace. The concoction of emotions is nothing new and was cooked to near perfection by artists like John Mayer, Jack Johnson and many more. That being said Miller certainly displays his talent with this song in terms of songwriting and delivery.
The song begins with a strummed guitar chord progression, vocals and atmospheric orchestral strings. MIller’s vocals stay within a comfortable singing range. I would say it's a mixture of emotion coming from his voice. It felt very reflective and full of gratitude. That combined with the lyrics I think gives a fairly overt signal.
He seems to be saying something like “it’s ok to let go and love, I’m open.” It’s a sentiment I think a lot of people might want to say to a romantic partner at some point. I think getting to know someone is a difficult process especially if you have been burnt in the past like most people have. Even when someone says something like “you can trust me” it’s hard. On that note the song might be an open door of sorts.
The song ends with the mood it starts with and the dynamics are subtle. I felt the instrumentation was there to elevate the vocal performance and become the focal point.
Suffice it to say this is a song that has mass appeal because it’s something a lot of people can relate to. Take a listen.
